How to Effectively Network During a Pandemic Webinar

April 8, 2021 | Chapter Event

Join the HIMSS New England Chapter on April 8 at 5:00 pm ET for their fourth and final Career Advancement Event.

The HIMSS New England Chapter has always encouraged networking amongst and between members and sponsors. However, networking during a pandemic is more than a little challenging so use this opportunity to engage in virtual networking.

Every member and sponsor will be invited to “stand up” to introduce and tell us a bit about themselves in the virtual meeting room. Everyone who wants to network during the evening will be given 1 minute to share. By agreeing to participate in the networking activity, you also agree to be on video and agree to be highlighted when you share.

Note: This event is open to anyone who wants to network, even if you don’t feel comfortable going on video to talk about yourself. Participants can listen to how others describe themselves and learn about new companies. Simply enter your information when you register and you’ll receive the list of attendees that agreed to share their contact information.

Once registered, further instruction on what to say during your “stand up” sharing will be provided (see below). As there is a limited amount of time available, not everyone may be given an opportunity to share. As such, please register ASAP. Timeslots will be given on a first-come first-served basis.
