Skidmore parents and friends are also welcome to join. Our mission is to deliver quality speakers, compelling event topics and an environment that will foster lifelong professional connections and partnerships.

In addition to its current regional and national Yahoo listservesSBN LinkedIn allows members to interface within one another anytime, anyplace.

Although it is not open to current Skidmore students at large, SBN accepts a select number of rising seniors to its network via it's Fastrack Program. (Students must apply via the Office of Career Services) SBN also offers seasoned professionals a special networking venue, SBN Gold gatherings.

Founded by a group of Skidmore alumni, the first chapter opened in New York City in 2005.
