The Yankee Chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) held a membership mixer on June 9, 2011 at the Hotel Marlowe in Cambridge MA. It was my first of such networking events, and I was excited to get a first-hand look at some of the players in TRA360’s industries. At the meeting there were presidents, writers, managers, students and more eager to socialize. Having a brief chat with several professionals in business communication proved valuable and offered me insight into the workings of our competitors. Not to mention the food was exceptional.
I’m eagerly awaiting the next networking events planned for this coming Tuesday with the Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society (RAPS). It will be nice to have the backup of TRA360’s own Valentina Rosa for all the hardball questions at the meeting.
