Virtual Networking Done Right
Networking in Diners (NiD) is a structured networking system of vetted business professionals, designed to make new connections, learn new ideas, generate introductions and build a team of trusted advisors for your business.
There are three components to NiD Virtual:
Virtual Coffee & Connections: our monthly members-only morning networking meetings.
Food for Thought: our monthly, open-invite member spotlight speaker series.
Casual Conversations: our informal monthly open-invite networking virtual happy hours where you get a chance to bring a guest and meet members from other groups in a less formal atmosphere.
This is Where We Meet
Each week, members who RSVP will receive a Zoom link and password for that month’s meeting.
Professions We Seek
At NiD, you can “lock-in” your profession in one of our exclusive groups! Our vetted networking group of business professionals allow for only one seat per vertical. What does that mean? Once we fill a spot for your profession at one of our groups, that position is exclusive to that group so long as you keep your membership current.

- How do you help your clients? Tell us a story!
- Describe your best power partners, those that are your best referral businesses for you.
