Topic: Social Event to "Build a Community"

Join us for a St. Patrick's Day themed Agile Tips & Tricks Social event as we continue to "Build our Community".

Bluegrass, Southeast Michigan, and Chicagoland IIBA Chapters are joining together to celebrate St. Patrick's Day a little early, and learn about some Agile Tips & Tricks from our resident experts. Bring your favorite Tips & Tricks to share as well as we continue to "Build our Community".

We will be dropping hints on LinkedIn as to what BA technique we will learn together during this event. See if you can guess what technique we’re going to cover before the event.

Please dress in something green for St. Patrick's Day, and bring your favorite drink and share your favorite Irish Toast. The Tips & Tricks will be shared with all participants following the event.

This promises to be a fun and interactive event. Don't miss it!
