The MAGAP Connection Series is comprised of informal "meet and greets" held throughout MAGAP states during the fall semester to provide valuable networking opportunities and long-lasting professional connections. Last year, the board members arranged to meet with MAGAP members during the fall recruiting season at area restaurants.As a host, you would be responsible for selecting a location and date, attending the event, creating the flyer/email announcing the event, and taking the RSVPs. When selecting a date, it is helpful to think about events in your area that would be attracting admissions professionals and enrollment managers such as a large graduate recruiting fair or conference.If you are interested in hosting a MAGAP Connection Series in your state, please respond to the appropriate person below.
