WAC Link Quarterly Wednesday, July 9 Whether you're new to the WAC or a longtime member, WAC Link Quarterly is for you. Lower Torchy's will play host for this quarterly mixer that connects members who may not otherwise meet. It's fast-paced and focused on linking you to a roomful of members looking for person-to-person, business-to-business, or interest-to-interest networking. Here's how it works: PreLink starts at 6 pm and gives everyone a chance to arrive, grab a beverage, enjoy appetiz- ers, and be ready at 6:30 pm for SpeedLink. During SpeedLink, you'll meet 15 differ- ent people in three-minute link-ups to chat and get to know one another. After SpeedLink there is an all-play group activity that culminates in a great WAC-themed prize.
