Contacts N' Coffee - Nov. Edition w/ METRO
PLEASE REGISTER HERE
Our Featured Presenter will be Vincent L. Sanders, Lead Transportation Systems Planner for METRO of Harris County. Mr. Sanders will present to us the benefits to Northside that their PROPOSED NORTHLINE TRANSIT CENTER RELOCATION can bring.
Mr. Sanders can also provide us with some insight as to other initiatives in the future that METRO may have in store for us.
We will have a Q&A session following Mr. Sanders presentation so this is an ideal forum in which to share your thoughts.
Our Contacts N' Coffee events allow you the opportunity to introduce yourself, your position, the entity that you represent, what it is that your entity provides and, importantly, what entity/entities might make a great referral for you. (Of course, it would not be Contacts N' Coffee without having a fun/silly question to answer as well!)
It is more important now than ever to reach out and develop strong business connections! We are all in this together and it is a lot better to not have to overcome these challenges that we currently face alone. So, put on your professional smile, crank up the enthusiasm, seize the moment and shine - This is a grand opportunity in which to do so!
