BNI Weekly Recap: December 13th, 2019

By: Bethesda Business BNI  |  Posted: December 13, 2019

Hello BNI Team,

Happy holiday-week-Monday! I hope everyone had fun with the ugly sweater contest on Friday. I was amazed at (and a little nauseated by) some of the sweaters you all wore. You folks really outdid yourselves...


Our event committee is still trying to nail down a place for the holiday party. We are now back to either Clyde's or Cooper's Hawk Winery. Reach out to Andrew Farkas or Greg Flynn if you have any suggestions.

There is NO MEETING THIS WEEK! You can show up if you want, but there won't be any bacon.

Our next meeting, January 3rd, will be a closed meeting to talk about chapter business. Please do not invite any visitors or subs that day. 

Alex gave a great networking moment with a good message. "Let your passion for your job shine." Your excitement (or lack thereof) is infectious, so make sure the people you talk to feel how much you love what you do.

Our next presentations will be on January 10th!
