February Networking Events

During the month of February, join your colleagues and friends for dinner or lunch and networking! An NCSLA tradition, these informal “neighborhood” events provide an excellent opportunity to network with fellow information professionals and students. We have a great mix of lunch and dinner options this year, so pick an event (or two!) to attend. Please spread the word about these gatherings among your colleagues. You do not have to be an SLA member to attend and students are very welcome! Here is a list of the Networking Dinner/Lunches planned. Additional details will be forthcoming from individual hosts. Please RSVP directly to the host of the event you wish to attend:
