    much information as possible.

    meeting to ask for any handouts or other
    relevant information.

       Are there Particular Ways that I Should
       Prepare in Advance for this Meeting?
       There are many ways that student attendees can ―Do their Homework‖ so
       that they can most effectively utilize time at the Conference.
1.   Study the program carefully—there is a lot of information about sessions,
     panelists and committee members. Make sure to visit the program on the ICSC
     website as it is the most up-to-date information. The Monday morning sessions
     and speeches will include the latest information and analysis on the economy,
     retail real estate, and developments in Florida.
2.   Visit the ICSC website to view meeting participants. One of the benefits of
     being an ICSC student member is that you can gain access to password
     protected parts of the website, including the individuals registered for any
     conference, including the Florida meeting. If you are looking to connect with
     particular people or representatives from a certain company, the information is
     at your finger tips.
3.   Study the Online Details about the Exhibit Space: Online program
     information for the Florida Conference provides rich detail about the participants
     in the Leasing area/Deal Making part of the program. These online tools are
     available to all members at : http://exhibits.icsc.org/2009fl/public/floorplan.aspx
     Be prepared to visit individuals and companies that are of interest to you.
4.   Brush up on the latest industry developments. ICSC’s top notch research
     department is continually releasing new reports and analyses with important
     industry information at the ―Research Resource Center‖ online:
     http://www.icsc.org/research/index.php Take an opportunity to review their latest
     findings and to read the most recent issue of Shopping Centers Today, the
     flagship publication of the industry.
      Insider Tips & Strategies:
      “Top 10 Suggestions for Effective On-site
      Networking at the Florida Conference”
1.   Giving Business Cards. Many students have business cards they may secure through their
     universities. If you do not, consider purchasing inexpensive personal cards on your own through
     VistaPrint® or some other inexpensive alternative. Distribute them freely!
2.   Getting Business Cards. Be meticulous about collecting business cards of people you meet at
     the Conference. Jot helpful notes and reminders on these cards. Organize them as quickly as
     you can. Use your new contacts for this meeting and other professional events to bolster your
     personal network.
3.   Follow Up Quickly. John Crossman recommends following up on conference contacts within
     48 hours of the meeting—―If you don’t follow up right away, it won’t happen.‖
4.   Nurture Contacts—Even Those That Don’t Seem Promising. Most initial meetings,
     particularly at a large conference, don’t yield immediate results. Continue to ―reconnect‖ and
     stay in touch with the people you meet at the Florida conference on a regular basis. When you
     get a job after school, drop a line to these individuals. You never know when the seeds of the
     relationship may sprout.
5.   Figure out What M akes People Tick. Beyond business connections, be on the lookout for
     things that matter to people you are meeting. We all know what devoted collegiate sports fans
     Floridians can be. Use those tidbits of information to cultivate relationships and bring a personal
     connection to your meetings.

        Networking at the Florida Conference”
6. Resume 2.0. It is vital to have a polished, professional resume to distribute at the Florida
    Conference and beyond, but remember there is a lot of other information about you that is
    available to prospective employers. Make sure that any social networking tools (Facebook,
    Twitter, etc.) reflect the professional image you wish to put forward. Make sure your email
    address is appropriate for professional settings.
7. Listen and Record! If you receive advice from a mentor or an individual with whom you are
    having an informational interview—write it down. Nothing conveys disinterest more than a
    person who seems to let advice, suggestions, and recommendations wash over them, without
    note. Be open about taking reasonable suggestions regarding professional development
    strategies and internship/job search ideas.
8. Do your Homework. If someone is generously giving time to you for a mentoring appointment
    or other discussion, do as much background works as is possible—learning about the individual
    and his or her company. Come to a discussion prepared with some good questions of your own.
9. Be Remembered for the Right Things. Professional Conventions like the ICSC Florida
    Conference are usually held in appealing locations. Remember you are at the meeting to learn
    and network, first—party, second. Get enough rest to be at the top of your game for sessions
    and other meetings.
10. Push Beyond your Normal Comfort Zone. Many students come with classmates from their
    particular university program. Resist the temptation to socialize with people you already know.
    Extend your hand to students and faculty from other programs, in addition to professional
    conference attendees. Remember if you are feeling awkward, others are as well. Press on.
And Remember!
 To say THANK YOU! To those who have
  shared their time, talents, expertise with
  you…..to professors who have made it
  possible for you to attend this
  conference…to the service providers,
  hotel staff, wait servers, at the Gaylord
  Palms and elsewhere who make the
  program run smoothly.
