KIA Networking Event

Another Corvid-19 "first" is coming up this month. The very popular KIA Networking Event will be held via Zoom on Wednesday, October 21st from 11:30am. This will be a great way to meet and learn about KIA members while maybe even having a nice lunch. As with all past networking events, in this new Zoom-land, we will all be seen and heard as if we were sitting around the conference table....just don't need to dress up and drive downtown!  

Please RSVP to Sherry Goya, KIA Executive Director at so that she can reserve a space. All those who RSVP will receive the Zoom link on Monday, October 19th, so that they can just "click" and be in the meeting. Sherry will have a list so that she can introduce attendees when we "go around the room" to introduce ourselves and give a short two to three minute presentation. Also as with past networking events, we will go back around the "room" again to ask for any comments, questions, accolades, etc. to share with everyone. The November KIA newsletter will have a summary of all attendees.
