These events will be sporadic throughout the year and could include social networking events, manufacturing expos, keynote speakers, awards galas, etc. With the help of chapter input, ING will help organize these events with the goal to provide a valuable networking opportunity for our members and guests.
PIPELINE is a virtual zoom meeting designed to deliver inspiring information from regional and national speakers to our ING members.
This is also an opportunity for ING members to join with other ING Members across the country. We encourage ING members to also invite prospective members to our PIPELINE meetings each month.
NUTS & BOLTS
Chapter Members contribute to the exchange of information during deliberate business development meetings known as Nuts & Bolts. In addition, ING will provide market research and leads to contribute to meeting content and enhance new business conversations. These meetings include a combination of in-person and virtual settings.
Member to Member meetings are encouraged within each chapter. These meetings are in-person and can take place at a coffee shop or other venue of choice. The ING has developed a process for each member to follow. These meetings are typically 30 minutes to 1 hour and provide a way for members to get to know each other better.
Informational Meetings are held by new chapters, either virtually or by conference call, to inform prospective members about ING and to formulate networking relationships. These meetings are held in the early stages of a new chapter's development.
