Recognition of new businesses and introduction of new members.

Glen asked the members to let us know when they hear of a new business in town as we will send out grand opening information to promote the business to our membership.

Next card exchange is scheduled for 1/30 at 6pm at the new Yoga studio.  Trump Luncheon is scheduled for 3/21 and we ask that members purchase their tickets early.  Do not wait till  last minute door walk ins.  The tickets will be $45 across the board.  No discounts this year.   Asked the members if they have any contacts to get additional golf outings donated for the silent auction we would like to have more of these as they seem to fair well for auction sales.  Also looking for nice basket donations.  Any assistance on planning this event is appreciated and volunteers can see Sue F or Alison A to sign up to help.  Vendor tables will be $200.  We are also doing the Swag bags to give away to each attendee and use any business promotional items members want to include.  GOAL IS TO SELL OUT LUNCHEON IN ADVANCE.  If you purchase a whole table you will be the table sponsor with signage.  July 3rd Fireworks sponsored by CNBA at Bucks Mill Park.

We collect business cards at each General Meeting from the attendees.  The winner each month gets a Journal Feature article on their business.  This is distributed to 35,000 households.  Value added program (handled by Anna A) for our members for attendees.
