NAED Connected Peers Program

Virtual Peer Networking Communities

 

 

WHAT IS THE CONNECTED PEERS PROGRAM?

Offered in conjunction with The Distribution Team and the American Supply Association (ASA), the NAED Connected Peers Program brings members together in small groups based on job functions to network with others in similar roles, linking the industry’s leading distributors and their key employees. Participants will share best practices and solutions to problems with their peers on a regular basis as a powerful formula for success. This is a cross-collaboration effort with ASA so participants will be from both associations. 

 

WHAT'S INCLUDED?

Each month the Distribution team will lead a structured one hour networking session focused on a different issue brought forth by a member of the group. These groups are limited to 18 participants each and are sure to be impactful as the content is member-driven. Also included is access to the Connected Peers Network, an online platform where members can post questions, articles, or other resources for the group.
