    President's Report

    Hello Charlotte NACE!

    Our February program was a big success ending up as standing room only!  A big thank you to Tracy Fisher at the DoubleTree Gateway Village, Julie Staley with Old South Studios, and Rachel Sheerin of She Sells.  We enjoyed a lesson on “Referrals, A Love Story” from dynamic speaker Rachel relating to how our personal and business contacts can provide years of referrals.  We heard success stories from different local entrepreneurs sharing success stories and how networking and referrals have enhanced their individual businesses.

    March’s program is our annual Tri-Chapter retreat.  This is the 4th year of the rotating retreat and hosted by the Appalachian Chapter at the beautiful Embassy Suites Downtown Greenville.  If this year’s retreat is anything like previous years, you are in for a big treat.  Come and experience two days of networking, team-building, and enjoying amazing food and beverages planned by the team in Greenville!  Register at www.charlottenace.com.  Be sure to book your hotel room early as this is a popular event:  Book at Embassy Suites Greenville Downtown.
