How Does It Work?

The Metro Officers Innovation Briefing starts Wednesday morning with a casual breakfast, followed by FDIC’s opening ceremonies and then back to the Metro room for a full day learning about what’s new this year and networking with your peers and suppliers. You may continue into Thursday morning (before the exhibits open) with our MATCH! program to extend your FDIC sourcing time.

You’ll be asked to provide:

  • Your headshot/photo
  • A brief department background
    A brief personal bio – no more than 4-5 sentences
  • Two peer related questions (shown on your profile so peers have context when asking to meet with you)
    • What would I like to learn more about from a peer? OR This keeps me up at night.  Has anyone gone through something similar and can offer some guidance?
    • What experience am I willing to share that may benefit a fellow metro officer

A few weeks before FDIC, you’ll be given access to the attendee and sponsor profiles to rank who you would like to meet with.  We will create a personalized agenda based on your preferences.
