Our highly popular EANE roundtables are an interactive learning opportunity structured to exchange information, provide networking with peers, and learn from other member organizations, all in a confidential setting. From best-practices to common workplace frustrations and challenges, the member-selected topics produce an active and spirited interchange of ideas and information as well as ongoing connections that last beyond the roundtable session.
Each group discusses a wide variety of issues, concerns, situations, problems and solutions common to their respective occupations. Many of the sessions feature a speaker for 15-30 minutes on a topic of the group's choice and then continues with open discussion, sharing of information and networking. Participants often consider the EANE roundtable groups as an ad hoc consulting team.
The monthly gatherings – frequently held at our training centers and our members’ locations throughout the region -- draw professionals from established companies, local small businesses, and start-ups from many industry sectors. Roundtables run from September/October through May/June; participants can sign up for all the gatherings or join at any time throughout the year.
See specific topics and locations below for our 2017-2018 season. For more information, contact Michelle Gneda @ 877-662-6444.
