Charlotte Networking Week 10th Anniversary

Popular networking event kicks-off February 21

The Ohio University Alumni Association's Greater Charlotte Chapter Network will host the 10th Annual Charlotte Networking Week (CNW) Feb. 21 – 23 in Charlotte, N.C. Ohio University alumni and current students are encouraged to attend.  

Alumni and students can gain insight about Charlotte's current job market through CNW’s direct contact with alumni living in the city and by researching career opportunities in the area. This year the program is proud to offer participants transportation in and around Charlotte via a charter bus.

Thursday’s events include a career-focused alumni panel followed by a cocktail hour and the Alumni Banquet at the Hilton Charlotte Center City. The keynote speaker for the evening is Tim Reynolds, a 1987 graduate from the College of Business who holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration. Reynolds is the founding executive director of the Robert D. Walter Center for Strategic Leadership and an Executive in Residence for the Management Systems Department at Ohio University. Among other accomplishments, he has 25 years of corporate experience with leading Fortune 500 companies and is a regular speaker for national talent and leadership related conferences.  

On Friday, students and alumni visit companies in Charlotte like Bank of America, Merrill Lynch, and Duke Energy. Others can visit schools like Montclaire Elementary or Bailey Middle School. Afternoon festivities give participants the choice to tour Uptown Charlotte, the Carolina Panthers Stadium or Time Warner Cable Arena. The CNW will finish with a Happy Hour event Friday evening.

Registration for the event is $40 and does not include travel or lodging arrangements. There is a $30 fee for round trip travel, but space is limited. Attending students and alumni are responsible for travel and housing accommodations. Registration is conducted on a first come, first serve basis.
