This is the time for you to learn all about the group! A time can be scheduled for this meeting that is convenient for you, at a local coffee shop or bookstore cafe.' A packet of information (calendar, event details, travel opportunities, etc.) is also given to you at the meeting. If you decide to join Silver Connections, the owner has already met you and you have met her. When you arrive at your first event, you will not be a stranger walking in the door!

~ You may pick and choose what works with your schedule and finances. Attention to cost is always our goal! Group rates and 55+ rates are a must! The owner has established relationships with venues, so that cost effective pricing is negotiated for members.

~ The owner is always researching upcoming events in the Triangle and future travel opportunities, many times months in advance, to be able to offer members a variety of choices!
~ All tickets for future events are organized, purchased ahead of time if need be, and details communicated to members.
~ You also have the opportunity, if you wish, to travel domestically or internationally. Silver Connections has formed partnerships with several travel agencies.
