CHAPTER ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

 APRIL MEETING

Please join your Delaware Valley RIMS peers for our second annual student forum and social hour to be held on Tuesday, April 14, 2015 at the Comcast Center, 1701 John F. Kennedy Boulevard, from 3:00 pm to 6:00 p.m. While the forum itself is restricted to student participants, DV-RIMS would like to extend an invitation to all DV-RIMS colleagues to join our students for a social networking hour beginning at 4:30 p.m and ending at 6:00 pm. Light refreshments will be served. There is no charge for nonmembers to attend the social networking hour.

 The student forum provides a unique opportunity for our student members to network with industry professionals in a small and casual setting.  Each group of students will be paired with a carefully selected industry professional who will share his/her career path, current role and industry insight.  This is a phenomenal opportunity for our student community to learn more about the variety of career paths in our field, as well as a chance to talk about their own aspirations with an industry professional in a small setting.
