|Creative Corridor Welcome Reception|
The annual Creative Corridor Spring Welcome Reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m., April 27, at the Paramount Theatre Encore Lounge, at 123 Third Street SE, Cedar Rapids.
Welcome Receptions, held twice a year, are opportunities for newcomers to be introduced to other Corridor residents at casual networking events hosted by the Cedar Rapids Metro Economic Alliance and the Iowa City Area Development Group.
DaLayne Williamson, ICAD Group Workforce Business Services Director, challenges Corridor employers to help fill the room. “Welcome Receptions easily connect our new residents to networks, non-profits and business contacts,” said Williamson. “Plus, we are able to showcase spaces perhaps unfamiliar to the community, like the Levitt Center, the Cedar Rapids Public Library and the beautiful Encore Lounge.”
This event is free and open to the public. To identify “natives” and “newcomers,” different colored nametags will be used to facilitate networking.
Advanced registration is requested in order to plan refreshments accordingly. Visit www.cedarrapids.org to RSVP.
The Spring 2015 Creative Corridor Welcome Reception is sponsored by the University of Iowa Community Credit Union.
