Mark the new year with networking event

An upcoming event will provide the opportunity for local professionals to network.

The “New Year’s Networking Extravaganza” will be held Wednesday, Jan. 12, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., at the Clark County Event Center.

The event is being co-hosted by Matthew Ferris, the new marketing manager for the Clark County Events Center, and the Women in Networking group.

The aim is to get local area networking professionals and business leaders together for a unique opportunity to explore the different networking options Clark County has, and offer an opportunity for attendees to gain new contacts and potential business partners.

Each networking group that wishes to participate will get a small table to display with brochures and other informational materials. Each group will also get 1 minute to speak about their group and why membership would be beneficial.

“This is how you pull yourself out of an economic slump, you look for new opportunities, new connections, new customers and you do it as a community,’ Ferris said.

The event center is located at the Clark County Fairgrounds, 17402 Delfel Road, in Ridgefield. For more information or to sign up, contact Ferris at matthew.ferris@clark.wa.gov.
