This is the first Structured Connections event of the year, offering an opportunity for members to connect with each other, as well as a featured speaker. When members enter, they will select from a “topic wall” to self-identify their areas of interest to facilitate networking. After a networking happy hour with food stations and a 15-minute “TED-style” talk from the speaker, members return to conversations with peers, sponsors, and the speaker.
Recognizing the changing needs of members, this event will offer the educational benefits and socialization of the Association’s traditional monthly programs in a new, abbreviated format that allows them to engage more meaningfully -- and with more people -- than a typical “sit-down” dinner event.
Our featured speaker is Osama Younan, General Manager of the City of Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety (LADBS), who will share what's coming in the built environment in 2022 and answer your questions.
