Networking meeting aimed at young leaders

Kristina Verner, research and development officer for the Centre for Smart Community Innovation, will be the featured speaker at a networking meeting of the United Way’s GenNext Committee, Monday, November 21, at downtown Windsor’s City Grill.

Organizers bill the event as an opportunity to meet with local businesspeople, community leaders, and individuals in their 20s and 30s interested in leadership development, volunteerism, and supporting the community.

Verner will discuss the region's recent bid for Intelligent Community of the Year and the collaborative effort that won a top seven finish. Her presentation will reflect what people can accomplish when they get involved.

Tickets are $10, include appetizers, and must be purchased by Friday, November 18. Find more information and buy tickets on the United Way Web site.
