Networking Discussions with Industry Leaders

May 10, 2017

Attendees will have an opportunity to sign up for small group discussions with Industry Leaders. Upon checking in, registrants will receive two personalized stickers, one white and one yellow. The stickers will be used to sign up for two networking discussions. A board will be located in booth 42 with time, Department, Room Assignment and Industry Leader for each session.

From Monday May 8th at 5:00pm until Tuesday May 9th at noon you may sign up for Session 1 using your white sticker only. After 12 noon on Tuesday May 9th you may use your yellow sticker to sign up for Session 2 as your availability allows.

Please Note: Small Group networking sessions are limited in attendance due to space. Once the sticker spaces are filled for a session, please select your next session of interest. Out of courtesy to other interested parties, please make sure you only use White Stickers for Session 1, and Yellow Stickers for Session 2. Misused stickers will be forfeited. Both SAME Omaha Post and the Industry Leaders do our best to keep the Industry Leaders for each group current, however as work priorities and missions demand attention some changes in Industry Leaders may be necessary.
