Our May meeting's educational program will be a Dale Carnegie workshop on networking presented by Tim Gilbreath of Dale Carnegie Institute.  

Description of presentation:  

In today’s highly competitive world, being a confident and effective networker sets you apart from the crowd. You become more visible, always feel in control and will always create more career and business opportunities than the average.

99% of people dread this vital activity; this highly interactive and entertaining workshop will help you overcome all your fears and concerns.

In an entertaining and motivational manner, we will:

  •       Create an outstanding positive first impression, break the ice and start the conversation with strangers.
  •       Create a process for getting to know someone organically, ensuring you leave every event with a potential business opportunity.
  •       Get the best when attending seminars and conferences.




Ed Shiffler & Jennifer Plourde will take head shots of our members before and after the May Chapter Meeting.  You will have the option to have your photo added to the chapter's website directory and will receive the photo via email to use on other website sites.

Photo times:  11:00am-11:30am  & 1:00pm-1:45pm
