Conference Update from the “Community of Business & Entrepreneurship”Posted: March 18, 2013
Are you a small business owner, consultant, or freelancer (or would you like to become one)? If so, you’re invited to participate in the AAFCS Community of Business & Entrepreneurship Annual Conference events this June in Houston.
Our Community will be hosting its annual luncheon where the “Entrepreneur of the Year will be honored and guest speaker Larry Garnett, an award-winning architect, will speak on his work designing green and multi-generational living spaces.
In addition to the annual luncheon, we will be sponsoring a Business Showcase where any AAFCS member who has a small business, is a consultant, or works in a freelance capacity such as an author or speaker, will display materials about their enterprises. Complete information and forms can be found on our web portal page at http://webportal.aafcs.org:8080/business/default.aspx. Remember, you must log into www.aafcs.org in order to access the Community portal.
Also, our Community is prepared to help small business owners cover some of the costs for a product sales table at the 2013 AAFCS Conference. The subsidy amount is based on how many members of the Community want to sell products. We will be providing this service only to new or single-person businesses whose owners are members of our Community. Product sales will be Friday, June 28, 9:00 am to 5:30 pm, and Saturday, June 29, 10:30 am to 1:00 pm.
If you need more information on any of these events, please contact me!
