Since last year’s event was a hit we are excited to announce we are hosting a 2019 Holiday Mix & Mingle Networking Event at our home bar in Newport Beach: The Blue Beet.
The spirit of the holidays creates a great time to meet new people, learn about their experiences, and build connections that will help you grow as an individual and professional.
On Tuesday, December 3rd from 6:30 – 7:30pm, Brian Drury from Overcoming Graduation will be sharing advice and resources for building your network during the holiday season. Whether you are a longtime member of OC PSU or a local alumnus who has never attended an OC PSU event, you will have the opportunity to connect with local PSU alumni as well as soak up advice on maximizing your networking opportunities. We are also offering free appetizers starting at 6:30!
For those alumni who are not interested in networking, you are welcome to arrive at 7:30pm for holiday fun, raffle prizes and drink specials on our Signature Cocktail: The Grilled Sticky Martini (with Grilled Stickies from State College)!
RSVP by December 2 for 50% off your ticket price and a free raffle ticket!
Those who show up at the door without an RSVP will be charged $10 (cash or check) for entry. All OCIEAA Chapter members current on their dues will receive an extra free raffle ticket upon arrival!
