What we're about
This Meetup group was created by the award winning RTP Chapter for the Association of Strategic Alliance Professionals to foster a community of like minded alliance, partnering professionals through networking and educational events.
Our chapter is made up of partner professionals from both large and small organizations representing major industries located in the RTP area including IT/Hi-Tech, Pharma/Biotech and Finance. We welcome all who work in some way with partners including traditional alliances, channels and procurement relationships. The roles we play and challenges we face transcend industry and organizational boundaries. The strength of our chapter comes from collaboration and shared learning.
You don't have to be an ASAP member to participate, but you gain many additional benefits (http://www.strategic-alliances.org/?page=benefits) by becoming one, some include:
• Educational webinars on partnering and alliance topics
• Member discounts for conferences, chapter events, and professional development workshop
