DWN Virtual & WFH Updates

DWN Events

We have gone virtual for all our events! Events will be available through Google Hangouts Meet, which means anyone can participate from any location. To attend, please register–this helps us manage the size for each event and make sure those interested receive the Hangouts Meet link. Thanks in advance for adjusting to this change in format.

  • 4/1 @ 8-9 am MDT – First Friday Coffee
    • BYOCoffee! The perfect opportunity to connect with fellow DWN members. We’ll assign you to a small Google Hangouts session, so please register here.
  • 4/14 @ 4-5 pm MDT – Leadership Networking Series with Kathy Schneider, SVP of Customer Service
    • We moved this upcoming event to a virtual experience! These small-group sessions allow members the opportunity to get to know leaders in a more informal gathering. Participation is limited to 12 individuals, so to reserve your spot, register here.
