Virtual Coffee Talk  -  June 16, 2021, @ 9:00 am

Please grab a cup of coffee, and join us online for these 50-minute interactive Zoom discussions. Our AFP Lowcountry Board Members will act as the Coffee “Host” and will bring some conversation starters to get the discussion moving. FREE to members and non-members.    

Topic - We've lost that mingling feeling!


Do you miss the networking and social part of the Lowcountry AFP chapter?  Join us for a fun, interactive session to learn techniques to connect with your colleagues virtually.  You’ll learn how you can apply these same techniques to your own networks!  In the last few minutes of the session, you’ll have the opportunity to “stump the facilitator” - bring any challenge that you experience in your virtual or in-person meetings and we’ll come up with some ideas for you to try!
