Meet -n- Mingles

Get to know your colleagues!  Watch for Upcoming Meet-n-Mingle Events in your Neighborhood
•        Have you wondered if there are ways you can meet more of your local healthcare colleagues – that  mysterious thing called “networking”?
•        Are you looking to find a next role?  You looking for the right candidate?
•        Is there a problem you are tackling at work and wonder if others are working on a similar issue?  Or are you just looking for others who will understand what the heck you are talking about?
•        Know where all the local healthcare execs hang out after work?
The highly popular Meet-N-Mingle events are happening at different venues across our state.  As future dates and locations are finalized, an invitation will be sent out.
Meet-n-Mingles are informal gatherings of area WSHEF members at a local restaurant or pub.  There is typically a small fee to cover appetizers.  While this is not a formal education program, someone will be there to share upcoming WSHEF and ACHE events and activities. 
So, rather than heading out into the usual rush-hour, head over to a local Meet-n-Mingle for a nosh and a drink and get to know your fellow executives.  We want to put A U in COLLEGE!  (hint:  colleAgUe)
By the way, we are always looking for local hosts around the state and we will help you do all the planning.  If you have an interest in holding a future Meet-N-Mingle in your area let the membership committee know at
Thanks, and get networking people!
