Despite the ongoing pandemic, members of the SEMA Young Executives Network (YEN) built new connections and developed valuable business relationships through YEN’s Virtual Happy Hours held earlier this year. Following the success, YEN is planning to continue to provide members with future Virtual Happy Hours, the next taking place on June 7 at 5:00 p.m. (PDT).
With YEN members connecting in small breakout groups, the Virtual Happy Hour allowed participants to meet new colleagues and get to know each other quickly and easily. The low-cost format also makes it easy for YEN members to stay up-to-date on YEN programs and resources.
The June 7 Happy Hour agenda includes updates on the YEN professional development program, upcoming industry events, SEMA Launch Pad, and the YEN reception at The SEMA Show. There are no specific topics for the breakouts, so attendees should be prepared to introduce themselves, learn about each other’s jobs, what their personal hobbies are or why they joined YEN.
