Speed Networking Event at the Highlands

Event details and registration link:

Speed Networking Event at the Highlands, June 7!
Join us for a night of Speed Networking Thursday, June 7 from 5-7pm at the Holden Frost House, at The Highlands, 7 Academy Lane, Topsham, ME 04086.  This event is sponsored by The Highlands and Calm Moments Skin Care. This is an event of the SMMC’s WILL Power team, and the 2018 Series Sponsor for WILL Power events is Legacy Investments & Wealth Management.  
Registration Link Goes Live on Monday, May 21 at 3pm.
This will be an incredible night of networking and fun, and The Highlands has graciously offered to provide complimentary drinks and heavy appetizers. There is a strict limit of 48 people, and only 2 people from any business. Six seats are dedicated to our sponsors so 42 remain. This is a first come- first serve registration. 
The only fair way to do it, is to let everyone know when the registration link will be active and the only way we will accept registrations is through the website. Mark your calendars now: the event link goes live at precisely 3:00pm on Monday May 21. Once registrations are full the registration link will not accept any more registrations. We will confirm with registrants on a daily basis until the seats are full. Once the seats are full you may e-mail the chamber and get yourself on a waiting list. If a seat opens up through people who cannot attend, or if there are more than two employees who sign up from the same business (resulting in every person registering after two being voided) then we will fill the seats with the waiting list. This event is expected to sell out, so do not wait. I would be surprised if there are any seats available by the time Tuesday night’s After Hours happens at Sebasco, but if there are we will announce the number of open seats at that event, and that will likely fill any seats that remain.
A registration link will appear on this event posting at 3:00pm sharp on Monday.
