Join Network For Progress, a media-savvy Advocate, social-savvy Community and movement-building Resource for forward-minded Grassroots Action,
as we host a bi-partisan meetup with a DC Comm Tech For Progress speaker series program on how to host and promote successful events as well as how to be most effective in interacting with your fellow guests!

Whether you are looking to build connections to build a Movement for a cause or build your Career or Business for your own professional development, the ability to host and/or connect at events is extremely valuable to network-building.

Relationships are the single most important marketing tool to building influence and the best way to develop relationships is face-to-face through offline social engagement.


And what is so “bi-partisan” about the program? Since mastering events is not an ideological skill, we will be joined by Chad Barth of Eventbrite, who worked at the Republican National Committee for eight years and served as
Deputy Strategy Director for Political Technologies and can provide a unique perspective that even many smart Democratic organizers might not have about the use of relationship-building on the right.


We will also discuss a special EVENT that Network For Progress would like help with planning for 2014!

6:30 Networking

7:00 CT4P Program with Q&A: “Leveraging Events for Network-building”

As you probably have heard or seen, first-ever U.S. Chief Technology Officer Aneesh Chopra left the Obama administration to run for Lt. Governor of Virginia with a strong pro-innovation message to make government work better for everyone regardless of party ideology. He is in a tight Democratic Primary right now with a more old school candidate so if you want to continue to see Virginia moving forward then get engaged and share with friends who can vote or want to help!
