This is always a struggle because you can attend events morning noon and night!
Ask yourself these questions:
What is my target market?
What is my demographic?
What are my needs?
Do I have a budget for networking?
What is my goal when I attend an event?
Am I prepared or do I just go and see what happens?
How many events do I want to go to each month?
Deciding on a group:
Once you have identified what groups maybe a good fit go and visit.
Most groups let you visit 3 times before having to make a decision to join.
Check out their website ( if they have one) set up coffee meetings with a few of the members and get their feedback on the group.
Do not feel like you have to go to every event your invited to!
If you have a schedule in place and the type of events fit your needs and budget, it will then become easy to decide.
Be effective and intentional !
I hope this was helpful!
