All you need to do is RSVP by the Tuesday prior to the luncheon as you’ve always done and include the name(s) of the person(s) you’ve invited to attend. Once five people new to Intersections have attended an educational luncheon upon your invitation, we’ll waive your fee for one Intersections (a $10 value)! And another perk: each guest dines at no cost on their first visit! The best part is, we’ll keep track of your guest attendance list for you, so no punch cards to keep track of or tickets to remember!
