Come join our networking meetings! One Monday of every month we hold
a networking meeting. The meeting is for professional business

opportunities. Each professional has an opportunity to speak for 2 or
3 minutes on their business and position within it. Usually, 15-20 people
come from all over the Washington
Metro Area and represent a very diverse group. The Dupont Circle location
means that you are just a subway ride away from this networking event.
