WiscNet Advisories to the Membership 2017-18

Last year our Advisories to the Membership were a resounding success.

Our goal was to take people from the WiscNet community who were passionate about a variety of topics and have them learn with others who had the same interests, ideas, and questions, and we not only met that goal but exceeded even our own high expectations. We want to keep that momentum going for 2017-18.

We've heard over and over that these conversations helped you discover tools and strategies for your work. We've also heard that the knowledge, skills, and experience you shared with one another at each meeting and in group presentations sessions at WiscNet Connections enabled many others to learn from you as well. This is what a membership organization is all about: you strengthen the value of being a WiscNet member, and you strengthen each other.


The 2017-18 groups will focus on the following topics: 

  • Community Area Networks 
  • Advanced Networking
  • Security
  • Services
  • Next Generation Leadership 

Meeting details

All groups will meet on the same day, in the same location. We're extending things a bit in order to maximize your time connecting and learning from one another: we'll host a Networking Social the evening before each day-long meeting, but there will only be two meetings prior to WiscNet Connections next May. 

We ask for your commitment: both dates, both locations. Continuity is important. You're giving this your time, energy, funds, and people power -- that's a real investment and we want you to get the biggest possible return.


So how does this work? 

1. Choose one Advisory group in which to participate this year.
2. RSVP for each meeting date (see below) by reserving a ticket for your chosen group, as well as one for the Networking Social the evening before the meeting.
