Mentor Matchmaking

Following the great success of the 2015 Mentor Matchmaking program, we’ve decided to run it again this pic

  • If you’re an old hand at BECC and want to meet new attendees and pass on your knowledge, sign up here to become a mentor!
  • If you’re new to BECC and looking to make connections and learn more about the community, sign up here to become a mentee!

We’ll match mentors and mentees and connect you via email in advance of the conference so you can arrange a time to meet up at a break or over a meal to ask questions, share expertise, and connect to others in the BECC community. We’ll reserve tables for the dessert reception and/or Friday lunch so that you have an easy way to meet up (further details on this with your assignments). Make sure to sign up before October 7th so we’ve got time to match and contact people. Questions? Contact Rebecca Ford at

BECC 10th Anniversary Party

Where better to celebrate a decade of BECC than a strip of bars located at the converted site of a former coal-generating power plant? Come join us for drinks, food, conversation, and/or (our favorite) dancing! No reservation necessary – just come to Power Plant Live (34 Market Place, Inner Harbor) anytime between 9-11 pm and find our reserved tables at the Leinenkugel’s Beer Garden. On your way in, don’t forget to pick up a VIP wristband at the entrance, which entitles you to discounted drinks at any of the 13 bar and entertainment venues throughout the Power Plant. Questions? Contact Beth Karlin at

Morning Running Group

The morning running group is an opportunity for people to get together, burn some calories, and get the day started right. Every morning (Thursday-Saturday), interested runners will meet in the hotel lobby at 6:30 am (look for the person with the sign). Pending attendance at 6:35, the group may break into sub-groups based on desired speed or distance, but *all are welcome regardless of ability*. Questions? Contact Nick Lange at
