Despite a shortened business week — Veterans Day is observed by many businesses and agencies on Monday — the Planner is still chock-a-block with networking and professional learning opportunities. And if any one day is any indicator on just how information-rich the week is, check out Wednesday. There is a business symposium, meetings for finance professionals, businesswomen, veterans, cultural arts executives, hospitality workers and literary professionals.
