> Synapse Networking Meetings that also benefit area Non-Profits

DESCRIPTION: Synapse allows you to get to know other professionals so you can give and gain referrals while supporting our community non-profits. This networking organization is first relational and THEN transactional, the key to its success. We know what you do, but what we really want to know is, what is your “WHY?”

I encourage my professional friends to join a hub that speaks to their heart and mission.

DATE AND TIME: Every other week

LOCATION: Hubs meet at the HQ for the non-profit sponsors. 

I have just joined the hub supporting the Cameron K. Gallagher Foundation and the SpeakUp5K Race that raises awareness for teens with depression and anxiety. The CKG Foundation is a beacon of hope for those affected by teenage mental illness.
