Networking All-Stars (NAS) is an invite only, pay-it-forward, professional networking group that has been active in the Triangle since 2012. The NAS community is composed of professionals from a variety of industries that come together once a month to network, help each other personally and professionally in any way they can, and support a charity.
Each NAS event has a sponsor who presents a charity of their choice to promote awareness for the cause and to raise funds for it. The great restaurants we host the events at kick-back a percentage of the proceeds generated by our group that night to the charity. Additionally, each NAS'er that brings in 2 canned goods to the event to benefit the Urban Ministries of Wake County get their first beverage paid for by the event's sponsor.
We encourage our NAS members to invite their trusted colleagues to join the group. We have 4 basic rules for the group: 1) no pitching, 2) no selling, 3) meet as many people as possible, and 4) pay it forward.
