Networking Day will be held at the Jaffa Shrine and there is no fee and no registration is needed.

“This is the third annual Networking Day but one significant change organizers have made this year is to open it to the public,” Zernick said. “Not only is it important for providers to know what services are available in the county, it’s important for the public to be aware of various services, from child care, occupational, vocational and rehabilitation services, to the different types of colleges offering education in the county, and even that ambulance services provide non-emergency transportation to doctor’s appointments
