Every month, the 1si calendar is filled with events for members to attend, from monthly to quarterly and annual gatherings. And in addition to the advantages of attending, you or your company can also be a sponsor for most of our events, and increase your exposure and name recognition among members and potential members.
Pearls of Wisdom
An event series with four annual events, Pearls of Wisdom features female speakers sharing their stories of success in business and life.
360° Economic Development Tour
The 360° Tour is an exclusive opportunity to immerse professionals into the Southern Indiana region and provide economic development education. Participants will experience a “behind-the-scenes” perspective of the community that they call home.
(A “YP” version for our under 40 professionals takes place in April.)
