Virtual Connection Corners

SRI is proud to introduce the first-ever Virtual Connection Corners!

Connection Corners has been a staple of the SRI Annual Meeting since 2013. An event specifically organized for the In Training attendees by the In Training Member Committee has provided immeasurable value to those whom attend in the next stages in their careers. During this event, accomplished individuals in our field are invited to host discussions at tables with topics that are relatable and of interest to attendees at diverse stages in their careers. These open-ended “chats” provide a casual environment to interact and facilitate networking between meeting attendees, especially amongst trainees.

With the cancellation of the 2020 Annual Meeting, the In Training Member Committee has determined that this event should be accessible to all In Training Members throughout the year.

With that being said, the first Virtual Connection Corners will be held February 11, 2021 at 12PM Central Time!

There will be three breakout groups, featuring different topics of conversation, of which attendees will select two that they would like to attend. This event will only be open to In Training Members, and each attendee will be allowed to speak only within the breakout groups to engage in discussion and ask questions.
