In 2019, in an effort to increase member participation, ISM-Akron will include networking events with our meeting schedule. These networking events will be held at area breweries or restaurants and will last from 1 to 2 hours. Networking events will not earn CEU's. 

Members attending networking events will pay a small fee, and appetizers will be provided. Members will be responsible for thier own drinks. 

In addition to networking events, ISM-Akron will list ISM webinars and other association events on the ISM Akron website.
