Coffee with Colleagues

We invite you to join your colleagues for coffee! Let’s face it, social distancing has us feeling disconnected and a bit exhausted. It is important to maintain relationships with co-workers and colleagues. Coming together in the morning for a virtual coffee break is a great way to brighten our day and start the workshop. You will be matched up with up to five other participants for chatting and networking.  This is an optional session before the workshop begins, and was added to the program because so many asked for more networking opportunities.  So, grab your favorite mug and connect with your colleagues!

  • How to search for attendees
