The Princeton Alumni Association of Canada will join with Princeton alumni associations around the world in a Global NetNight: Networking Without Borders. The theme of the event will be using social networking to connect to Princeton alumni in Canada, the United States and in other countries around the world. The event will be the first in what we hope to be many such global networking events for Princeton alumni in Toronto. We will experiment with structured networking exercises, discuss initiatives to help Princeton graduates find opportunities in Canada, and have a discussion panel on the use of the internet to connect with each other. The focus of night will be networking opportunities and not necessarily only career-networking so I would like emphasize that everyone who is interested is invited.
