What are NETC Gatherings?
Every month the NETC group meets via Zoom to discuss timely and important topics ranging from professional development to personal growth. Each discussion is organized and led by individuals who volunteer their time and expertise to the community. Our Gatherings committee coordinates each Gathering and the NETC team is excited to share these online events with both NETC members and affiliates alike.
