Be sure to take advantage of the 1st Time at Forum Gathering (May 29, 2018 – 4:45 pm – 5:30 pm – Level 1 Butler Ballroom) where you can meet other newcomers and hear from volunteer leaders who will share tips about how to make the most of the many learning and networking opportunities at the 2018 Forum.
Dinner groups hosted by AIR members provide additional opportunities for networking and are scheduled at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 29. Anyone can organize a dinner group, and AIR staff will help with location suggestions and reservations. Additionally, many regional and state organizations host dinner groups after their 6 PM meetings on either Wednesday, May 30 or Thursday, May 31. Dinner groups are included in the online scheduling tool and can be added to your online schedule.
The AIR networking hub and Exhibit Hall also provides ample opportunity to meet and mingle with colleagues during the welcome reception, coffee and dessert breaks, and lunch hour. Poster sessions are also located here. And don’t forget to visit our sponsor booths and learn about the latest tools and services for IR and related fields.
