Networking | AORE Member Service

AORE recognizes that we, as humans, are wired to seek out community. That is why we create countless opportunities for our members, leadership, volunteers, and partners to form authentic relationships throughout the year. Each setting is inclusive and accessible---from our 12 online message boards and the outdoor learning experiences we deliver through programs like Global University to promoting partner events that feature critical industry conversations, member-led learning sessions, and social meet-ups. Networking, the exchange of research, mentorship, and creative collaboration are also themes at the forefront of AORE's annual conference.


Join AORE and AEE in Spokane, Washington, this November for a learning expedition that will challenge you personally and professionally. Valuable education, extensive networking, industry vendors and more.

Check out our conference schedule to learn more about our networking events, including CareerHQ, the Exhibit Hall, Demo Day and our social events. Learn more about our networking-based sessions on the conference "About" page. Come join us!
