Web Content Mavens is hosting its first Speed MIX on Monday.  MIX is Speed Networking between people who run digital projects for associations & nonprofits – and the digital experts who can help!

Make connections, talk shop, find help for your projects (or projects to work on) and get to know each other over drinks and appetizers. No sales pitches – just an opportunity to meet.

==What is Speed MIX?==

Speed MIX is an opportunity to network with several people in a short time period – you’ll mingle (M), interact (I) and exchange information (X). All with food and drink!

Before the event, you’ll provide information about yourself, your organization/company and what you either can provide (if you are a freelancer/agency) or what you need (if you are with an association or nonprofit). We’ll use this to pre-match you during the speed portion.

Mingle: When you arrive, we’ll have a short structured networking portion where we organize tables based on topic and you can self-select which table to join. After the Speed MIX portion, you can return to those tables or talk with the people you’ve met.

Interact: Speed MIX – You’ll meet 4-6 people, in sessions of 10 minutes each. We’ll match you based on information you provide.

If you are with a association or nonprofit, you’ll talk with freelancers and agency staff. If you are a freelancer or work for a digital agency, you’ll talk with people at that run digital projects.

eXchange: More networking! Exchange information with the people you’ve met – and reach out when you are ready.
