Leaving the office to go to networking events can be challenging—especially if you're part of a small team. At the same time, attending industry events is a vital way to expand your network, sharpen your skills, and learn about emerging trends in your field.
When you are able to make time to go to events, you want to ensure they further your professional goals and help you work towards the next step in your career. We put together a list of event recommendations, each of which were selected because they are organized by groups that are invested in the communities they serve.
While some of the events are paid or require travel, they are a good opportunity to make the case to your company to support your professional development. As you research the right events to attend in 2019, consider how the event will contribute to your goals and benefit your company by helping you become a more effective and valuable team member.
