Networking is one of the top reasons attendees come back to RISE National year after year. 

This is where connections are made and relationships are fostered. Our 2022 program features extended networking hours to provide ample opportunity for attendees, sponsors, and speakers to reconnect after three years apart. We will have a color-coded system in place to allow attendees to self-select and display their comfort level for interacting with peers through ribbons labeled: High-Fives & Handshakes, Elbows Only, and No Contact.
