Construction Chat is a weekly chat on Thursday mornings at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time. If you’re free, we’d love you to join us.

This week’s topic is on networking.
“Networking events have been incredibly productive for me. I’ve acquired new clients, hired new employees, created strategic partnerships and even made some lasting friendships.” Jon Gelberg ~ “The 6 People I Meet at Every Networking Event and Wish I Hadn’t”
