Fun News From The January Membership Meeting

Posted by Susan Kingsley, Thursday, January 24th, 2013 @ 3:48pm


    Where  can you get better business advice than from your WEC friends?

    Attendees at the January luncheon will agree: Nowhere!


    This month we spiced things up a bit with table talk. Members and guests drew a card to discover their designated table. Individuals at each table gave their “two cents” about a business related question. Then we all benefited from a table-by-table report back.


    Member comments: WOW, this was fun and different. . . . I had a chance to get to know more members. . . . Loved it. . . . Let’s do it again.


    Thanks to all who so generously shared business advice with their WEC friends.

    It doesn’t get much better than that.
