Like any marketing vehicle, it may not be for everyone, but you don’t know until you check it out first.” Knowledgeable speakers make this a don’t-miss for anyone still pondering the value of networking. The event is free to KNSBC members in good standing and $35 for renewing members and guests. The fee automatically includes an annual KNSBC membership.
