We’re an easy-going group. We don’t have attendance requirements. We don’t force you to bring guests or have one-on-ones. But we do have a few rules that are important to know:
    Do not add FANG members to your CRMs, newsletters, or marketing lists without explicit permission.
  • RSVP
    RSVPing is important for three reasons.

    1 - It allows us to manage attendees so we comply with fire regulations.

    2 - It shows that the group is vibrant and alive which attracts new members.

    3 - It lets members find you when they're in need of service
  • Tip the Waitstaff
    If you order food (and we encourage you to do so), please remember to leave an appropriate gratuity.

Forney Area Networking Group WILL BE MEETING ONLINE!

Even the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) can't keep FANG from meeting. We have to change things a bit, but that's okay. Please join us ONLINE!
