Network & Learn Events

What is Network & Learn?

Give us five minutes and your next meeting is planned!

ACS "Network & Learn" is a new program that provides a simple and cost-effective way to reach and network with the industry members in your local section or ACS group as well as others in your local industry community. 

ACS provides a video on an industry-relevant topic that can serve as a centerpiece for networking events. You provide the space, invite your guests from your local business community, and we will provide the content and promotional and support materials. It’s that easy!
