NETWORKING

Network Dinner Meetings

Most of our networking dinner meetings are held on the second Tuesday of the month (exceptions are November and December). We do not meet in July or August.

We offer a speaker or panel at each meeting. Topics are of general interest and cover business development, careers, industry trends, and personal development.

The typical meeting has the following schedule:

  • 5:30—6:00 Networking
  • 6:00—6:45 Announcements, Member & Guest Introductions
  • 6:00—7:15 Dinner
  • 7:15—8:15 Program

The meetings are held at a convenient downtown Portsmouth location. We offer a choice of entrees in a delicious meal that complements the friendly ambiance.

Dinner costs are $25.00 for members and $30.00 for guests.

A time-honored SWN tradition is to have all meeting attendees give a brief introduction about themselves—what they are involved in, what they are interested in, what they need. It is a terrific way to get your word out—and with dramatic, sometimes, instant results. People have been known to leave meetings with great new contacts, new referrals, and new interests!

Each May, SWN dedicates the entire evening’s meeting to the ever-popular “Networking Night” (a mini expo), when members get the chance to showcase their businesses, demonstrate their services, and distribute their information and brochures to other SWN members and guests. This program event gives our talented members the opportunity to increase their customer base and also creates and supports an ongoing SWN marketplace.
