RNR Celebration 2024

International Networking week is February 5-11, 2024. The goal of this holiday, initiated by BNI in 2007, is to support professionals in building a professional support system with thousands of others to grow their business. In our region we use this as an opportunity to hold our regional networking and recognition(RNR) award ceremony.  This page will be updated as we solidify dates, locations and open registration for the event, so please use it to nominate members for Referral of the Year, become a Swag Sponsor and ultimately register for our Regionwide Networking and Recognition (RNR) Event for 2024!
