2018 May - Business Partner Member Appreciation (members & guests)

This is the night we say THANK YOU to our Business Partners:

Smead, 1-800-GOT-JUNK, ShelfGenie

You Move Me, Closets for Life, KitchenWise LLC

This is the meeting where our Business Partners connect with members during extended networking time and short presentations.

Members and two (or more!) of your favorite professionals from businesses that you work with are invited! Let's fill the room and broaden the scope of our community! Cheers for the member that brings the most!

Location

Diamondhead Education Center
Savage Conference Room (2016C)

New This Year

Members are invited to bring non-member professionals as your guests - - at NO CHARGE. Our goal is to connect members with relevant professionals and services, provide a larger audience for our current Business Partners to promote to, and connect with potential future Business Partners.

Who to invite?

It may be the moving company you worked with on a recent relocation. Or the estate sale service that you regularly use when clients are downsizing. Or even the local distributor of a product or service you have used with success. Think of all the businesses that extend into the work we do with our clients.

This is a great opportunity for members to connect to businesses that offer complimentary services or products. In addition to being a fun evening, it includes dinner and door prizes – you don’t want to miss it! With everyone’s help we can get a great crowd together!
