Join professional groups. Joining a professional group allows you access to lectures, conferences, workshops, forums, and meetings in your field. The people you meet at these events can expand your networking contacts.
Volunteer to be a part of a committee. You can showcase your leadership skills by working on an industry-related committee. The contacts you make volunteering will be of a higher value because you will work closely together on significant projects. This is a great way to make yourself visible and valuable. As part of SEG's global strategy, members may now participate in most committee meetings from anywhere in the world if they have a telephone, broadband Internet access, and a few extra hours to devote to deliberations. Learn more about SEG committees by visiting our committee pages.
