Lunch Dine-Arounds

Dine-Arounds were such a hit in Austin at the inaugural Municipal Special Events Summit, that we’re bringing these to Raleigh!  All attendees are encouraged to participate in this great networking opportunity.  Directly following the morning educational sessions, the Local Organizing Committee will assist in matching individuals who will go to lunch together at some of downtown Raleigh’s prime lunchtime hot spots.  Details will be provided for those interested in participating in the “Know Before You Go” email, which will be sent out Fall 2018.

Unique Raleigh Experience

Join your MSES friends for a Unique Raleigh Experience.  We won’t share too many details here, because it’s a surprise!  Following this Unique Raleigh Experience, attendees will be invited to gather at a downtown Raleigh destination for more networking and socializing.
