December 5 | 6 – 8 PM | New Americans Museum

The expression “it’s not what you know, but who you know,” is only one part of the networking equation.

Stewarding professional relationships requires identifying mutually beneficial connections, outreach and cultivation. The good news is these are all things that can be learned. Our panelists will discuss strategies for building rapport, maintaining relationships and how to ask for support while expanding relationships with stakeholders invested in you.

In other words, how to make your netWORK!

We will hear from 3 incredible panelists:

  • Jeremy Bloom, Donor Relations Manager, ACLU
  • Rebecca Handelsman, Senior Director of Communications, San Diego National History Museum
  • Jill Hammons, Membership Director, USS Midway Museum

Tickets are free with a suggested donation up to $10. Space is limited. Register today!

Parking: The New American Museums is located in Liberty Station, surrounded by plenty of street and lot parking. See map
