December 2017 Monthly NBDA Reporter: Message from the President, Jan 31 NBDA Networking Happy Hour, the 2018 event lineup, and online resources for networking and job searches.

December 2017 Best Practices & 2018 Programs
Message from the President:
It IS the most wonderful time of the year!
The holiday season is in full swing. Regardless of how you celebrate, it's the time of year to focus on what matters most in our lives. It's time with family and friends, over good food and good cheer. It's time to reflect and to look ahead.

As we get ready to kick off 2018, "Happy New Year" seems to take on a special meaning. 2017 hit us with plenty of challenges, but as we've seen especially over the past five months, we are #HoustonStrong. We are a caring community, we are resilient, we are committed, we are resourceful, and we are champions! We've proven time and again that from challenge, comes opportunity.

Let us remember that it's not the destination, but the journey. May you all embrace each day of your journey in the coming year. The National Business Development Association and I forward to sharing the adventure with you, and helping you grow your network and your business.

Best wishes for every blessing of the season,

Plus, your registration includes everything you need to keep the conversations flowing: 2 drink tickets for beer or wine plus delicious appetizers.
