SSP Washington, DC Regional Meetup October 2021



SSP Regional Event in Washington, DC

Thursday, October 28, 2021
3:00-4:30 pm ET

Capacity is limited, so please register in advance. (Please let us know if you need to cancel at any time after registering, as it will free a space for another attendee.)

Join the DC regional group on Thursday, October 28 for an in-person networking event on getting back to work. This conversation is a follow-up to our June presentation, “Re-Imagining the Post-Pandemic Workforce.” We will host roundtables on the rooftop of the American Geophysical Union's (AGU) NetZero Energy building to discuss how we are getting back to work, conducting virtual and in-person meetings, building professional relationships virtually and in person, and much more. 

Optional informal happy hour to follow in Dupont Circle (where you must follow the restaurant's COVID guidelines). An optional building tour will also be offered at 4:30pm.

The event is free to attend, but you must register in advance, as capacity is limited.
