View the Calendar of Networking Meeting and Professional Events

We include a robust list of events and networking opportunities on RetirementConnection.com, including landing pages for recurring network meetings. To receive a complimentary page in the networking section, a meeting must represent the following:

  • Be specific to the senior industry
  • Be open to anyone from the senior industry to attend, and not a close network
  • Have a Regular attendance of 25+
  • Typically held in person rather than on-line

We know there are many other valuable meetings to attend, and we encourage you to do so. We hold to these standards, in an effort to highlight larger networking opportunities, rather than just list every possible meeting in the community. If you are not seeing specific details for a meeting, it may be because the meeting does not currently meet these parameters, but may still be meeting. We will remain in contact with the organizers and hopefully list again in the future.

The following networking groups meet on a regular schedule and are a great way for you to create stronger connections in the profession. The following listings shows you a quick at a glance view of the upcoming month’s meetings. Join Our E-Mailing List to receive the newsletter
