Neighborhood Networking at the Networking Forum

It was great to meet so many new people—as well as see familiar faces—at the Networking Forum at Grossinger City Autoplex last night.

The event, hosted by Jon White of Send Out Cards, featured Neighborhood Networking as well several other Chicagoland networking groups and organizations (see the full list).

We enjoyed chatting with everyone about Neighborhood Networking and hope to see you at our next events!
