First Timers

Will this be your first year at PASS Summit? Join us for an orientation program designed to help new attendees like you get the most out of Summit’s valuable training and networking opportunities. The program features two main elements:

  • Professional Development and Networking Workshops -  Networking professional Don Gabor will guide you step-by-step through networking and professional development  tips and strategies for 45 minutes on Tuesday, November 6, 2012. Four workshop time slots will be available from 1:00pm to 4:45pm plus an evening workshop at 7:30pm to suit Tuesday pre-con attendees.

    Sessions will be made available to PASS Summit first timers on a first come, first served basis. All first-timers will receive an invitation to RSVP for the session of their choice. Missed the invitation? Let us know.
  • First-Timers Orientation Meeting - Meet other first-timers while trying out your new networking know-how. Hear from PASS Board member Thomas LaRock on what to expect from your week at Summit. The orientation meeting will be held Tuesday, November 6, 2012 starting at 5:15pm.

As part of the program, Summit first-timers will also have the opportunity to be connected with a Summit alumni who will share valuable information and tips in the weeks leading up to PASS Summit.
