Informal Networking Events
Just like Facebook, but in person! We recently hosted our first informal networking event at Milano's Restaurant, and feedback has been positive. This is a nice way to chat with a small group of members, potential members and friends in a relaxed environment outside of our regular meeting communities. If you have an idea for an informal networking event, contact VP of Membership Karen Kawaguchi. We are particularly interested in events in North SB County, East Ventura County, and the Ojai Valley area. Watch the events calendar for upcoming gatherings.
Networking/Professional Development Luncheons
With dynamic speakers from the region and beyond, we alternate AFP SBV luncheons from Santa Barbara to Ventura County. Luncheons run from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm with the first half hour dedicated to networking. You will find the schedule and speakers listed on our Events Calendar. Make sure to pre-register as we may fill to capacity. We meet most months throughout the year.
What better way to connect than to get involved! There are opportunities to support AFP SBV through our working committees whcih include:
Communications: Help get the word out to our members, media and friends through newsletters, social media, web and publications. Contact Catherine Kort for more information.
Program: It takes a team to bring our monthly luncheons to life. This committee works with hotels, speakers and collaborates with communications to plan and implement luncheons. Contact Molly Kemper or Dena Jenson.
Membership: We're all about our members: Participation on the Membership Committee will help to make the AFP SBV member's experience valuable and enjoyable while ensuring that local professionals know about the benefits and accessibility of membership. Contact Karen Kawaguchi to get involved.
