Q: I would like to attend the Networking Happy Hour Meet Ups, but I did not sign up for the program, am I allowed to?
A: Unfortunately, the Networking Happy Hour Meet Ups are only open to students registered for the series.
Q: I've signed up in the past for several courses that are listed in the Leadership Program. If I sign up for the program, do I need to attend the session again? Do I qualify for a discount?
A: If you attended one of the courses listed in the Leadership Program within the past 2 years, then we will acknowledge that you have completed that specific course. We would continue to encourage you to attend the session within the program again, however, in the event you are unable to attend, instead of a discount on the overall program, we will credit you 2 mixer registrations per previous course completed that can be redeemed during the year of your program. Mixer registrations can be assigned to other employees from your firm.
