Join FABA – Build relationships – Grow your business

 

Wishing you a very happy July 4th.  Have a great time, but be safe in whatever you do.

 

FABA meetings:

FABA meetings are a great chance for you to do some relationship building, networking, and marketing.  We’re all working together to make Fletcher and the area grow and prosper.

The FABA Coffee Club meets on the first and third Tuesdays of each month from 8 – 9 AM at Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, 235 Saint John Road, Fletcher.  Besides the usual 1-minute self-introduction speech, at each meeting, a representative from one business has the opportunity to present a larger summary or spotlight of what that company does.

940x4501Focus After 5 is a terrific networking/social opportunity after work.  It typically meets the second Thursday of each month from 5:30 – 7 PM.  The Focus After 5 location varies, and is typically established months in advance.

This month it will be July 14th and sponsored by the Broadmoor Golf and Event Center, 101 French Broad Lane, Fletcher.

If you would like to sponsor this activity, see Teona or Glen.  Their contact information is on the Contact Us page here on the FABA website.

 

Other activities:

Carolina Rex will be performing a Summer Concert at Fletcher Community Park on Saturday, July 9th at 6 PM.  Their specialty is Blues, but they have a varied repertoire.

 

A committee has been formed to request a new state-of-the-art library facility for northern Henderson County.  A petition to the Henderson County Commissioners is available for signing and can be turned in at the Fletcher Town Hall.  The current library in Fletcher is somewhat limited.  I recommend pursuing this.

 

VISION HENDERSON COUNTY, is one of Henderson County’s most prestigious organizations.

It’s an innovative leadership development program under the sponsorship of Blue Ridge Community College and the Henderson County Chamber.  The program is open to all citizens of Henderson County from the public, private and non-profit sectors.

There is an Orientation class on August 11 and day-long programs are once a month through April 2017.  The tuition for this program is $355.  Contact M.C. Gaylord at m_gaylord@blueridge.edu.

I’m still posting an RFI.  For those who don’t know, that’s a Request For Information.  I’m looking for testimonials.  If FABA has been a major part of or crucial to your business success, let me know.  http://extraordinarywriter.com
