Description

Stay in your sweats, grab your favorite beverage, and connect with colleagues across Wisconsin during WSHA's Happy Hour Series.  Virtual networking is running from 6/16 through 8/25 and offers a meet-up for everybody.  Although sessions will be facilitated, these 1 hour gatherings offer an informal time for Q&A with colleagues, sharing resources, and connecting with others facing similar challenges and successes.
