Have you read any good business books lately?  Come join us June 9th for the AWBO Summer Social to exchange one of your treasured business books with another business owner.  There will be a chef-prepared, gourmet meal, sponsored by Lee Supply and hosted by Design Alternatives.  Where else can you shop for a good business book, engage in stimulating conversation, see some old friends, meet new business contacts, all while consuming gourmet food? We look forward to seeing you there!

A Note from Your President...

I love to meet new people.  Meeting people at a business meeting is a lot different than at a networking event.  The usual meeting is arranged seating, down to business, numbers, deals, etc.  We've all been there, we all do it.  It's ok, not a ton of fun, but ok.

Now, switching that meeting to a networking event...what an opportunity!  It's an opportunity to meet someone new, to catch up with old friends, to talk with business associates in a non-threatening way.  Not to say we're not professional, but the atmosphere is low key.

With that being said, I personally invite each and every one of you to join us on Tuesday, June 9th from 5:30pm to 7:30pm for AWBO's Summer Social.  I am excited to see the different books that will be brought for exchanging, to try food from a private chef and visiting.

So grab a book that you've enjoyed and would like to pass along, bring a friend or two, but most of all, have a great time!!
