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!

~ There is never any pressure to attend an event! We have members who work F/T, some P/T and some are retired....so all different events at different times!

 

~ The owner attends many of the Silver Connections events or is there in the beginning to make sure that all new members are introduced, all members are comfortable, tickets to a performance are distributed, etc.  

~ All the planning, directions, parking, event details, reservations, etc. are all taken care of! Communication is on-going between the owner and members at all times, so all details of each event are known. All the preliminary work is done for you, so you can just show up.
 
 
~ 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. There is no pressure to travel and you can pick and choose what trips you may want to go on.  (Click on TRAVEL on the left sidebar to see just some of our trips!)
