Our goal when we bring our members together on a monthly basis is to always deliver the two main things that time-strapped professionals want out of a networking experience:

Life-changing content and high-quality connections (both new introductions and opportunities to reinforce existing relationships). So, all of our events include both a content component and a connecting component.

Given everyone’s packed schedule, we also offer flexibility. Aside from our large events, which often feature highly sought-after speakers from around the country, we offer multiple dates and locations to choose from.

We have three primary event formats: YOUniversity events, member-led presentations, and “un-networking” roundtables.



“The best events in Washington are sponsored by CADRE. Where else would you find amazing speakers, tremendous learning, and conversations with DC’s most remarkable business leaders all under one roof?! If you get the chance to attend a CADRE event, don’t hesitate. Plan to arrive early, stay late, and have a great time in the process meeting some of the most amazing people you’ve ever come across in Washington, DC.”
— Joey Coleman

Our YOUniversity events bring together our entire membership (and their guests) in one location, to learn from bestselling authors and international thought leaders. In the past we’ve hosted Dan Pink, Gary Vaynerchuk, Marc Ecko and James Altucher, just to name a few.

Like the majority of our members, you will be able to leverage these events to host your clients, prospective clients and key team members, as an additional way to add more value to those relationships.

Member-led Presentations

This format features one of our remarkable members sharing their knowledge and expertise with the community. We have no shortage of top CEOs, bestselling authors and professional speakers, covering 60+ industries, so the peer learning is second to none.

The presentations cover a wide range of ideas and have included topics like, “Developing an Exit Strategy for Your Business”, “Creating Content for Your Website That Leads to Client Acquisition” and “Developing Your Personal IPO: Taking Yourself Public to the World”, to name a few.


Un-Networking Roundtable Lunches

Our YOUniversity events and member-led presentations are highly impactful, but many of our members find the intimacy of our smaller gatherings just as valuable. Every couple of months, we host dutch-treat lunches in the private rooms of local restaurants, where attendees are able to get up close and personal with 12-15 other members, who vary from month to month.

Our members show up at these lunches eager to learn how they can help each other. Everyone has an opportunity to introduce their business, current areas of focus and/or anything they could use help with.
