Please join us in a virtual networking session, featuring our guest speaker, LizMarie Palomo, General Manager, Columbia Care Inc., Chicago.

The hour-long session is fully focused on building connection, alignment, and community among IWC members. While it’s undoubtedly tough to create community while the world is virtual, this will be a strategic session that seeks to support authentic opportunities for professional growth. The session will include a post-event directory to promote continued connection.

Groups will rotate every 15 minutes to keep the networking flowing. Networkers should have their intros ready: Name, business, or specialty, or role, and what business opportunities are you seeking.
