Networking tips

The Best Friends National Conference can open new doors for you both personally and professionally. Connecting with leaders, experts and like-minded people in animal welfare all in one place gives you the chance not only to learn how to save more lives, but to create a lasting community full of invaluable resources and friendships.

Here are a few ways that you can make the best of your conference networking experience:

  • “Like” the Best Friends National Conference Facebook page and after you register, be sure to RSVP as "Going" on our fun and engaging Facebook event page. You can post questions, make connections or just soak up the conversations.
  • Bring stacks of business cards or notes with your contact info to share with people you meet.
  • Collect others’ cards and make notes on them to help you remember who’s who. You’ll be surprised by how many people you meet.
  • Attend social gatherings during the conference, including the welcome reception and the Yaps and Apps happy hour. They’re some of the easiest places to meet up and chat with everyone.
