Dear Colleagues and Friends:
Since the early 1990s, MCNC has offered a face-to-face networking event for our constituents through the annual NCREN Community Day. This event continues to evolve.
Earlier this year we convened a focus group representing all of the NCREN customer sectors to hear what they wanted to experience during this event. We received great ideas and have incorporated many of them into Community Day 2016. Our expanded program will include breakout sessions, more free time to network, a hotel venue to simplify your stay, and convenient parking!
Recommendations from the focus group helped us create the theme Network. Teamwork. Make Ideas Work. The idea for our theme is to focus on human networking as well as NCREN's technology and infrastructure networking.
While networking is at the core of what we do, it’s more than technology. It’s people. It’s how we all can work together to develop exciting results for innovative ideas.
We welcome the opportunity to network and share with you once again in November. Feel free to invite colleagues and peers to participate.
