February 2017 Monthly NBDA Reporter: Announcing the year of New Opportunities, Feb 7th Signature Event on Post-Inaugural Impact for Houston, 25% off new membership discount and online resources for business development that you can use today.

February 2017 Monthly News & Updates
Message from the President: 2017 will be a year of new opportunities. And we want to help.
Are you consistently learning and evolving in your business? What have you done in the past six months to further your knowledge, research your information, refresh your material, and firm up your business? This doesn't require massive expense or a huge amount of time.  It's knowing who you are right now and enhancing what you do and how you do it. One decision at a time, one step at a time.

I am committed to leading NBDA to the best of my ability.  My service is a series of incremental steps to better serve you, our Association, and our profession. Here are some questions to ponder as you perform your own analysis:
  • Who has the largest network of C-Suite professionals?
  • Who knows how to trade cards, sit down and make something happen?
  • In what small ways can you develop better relationships?
  • What steps can you take to enhance your value to others?
  • What can you do to make your business more efficient and effective?
As we continued to raise the bar of professionalism in NBDA, I will continue the journey of building relationships and building trust which will allow everyone to build their business.

Member Spotlight: Amber Welchel, Vice President at Allegiance Bank

Initially, I attended a few NBDA events as a non-member to enhance my business development best practices. The various business development topics were always on target with my professional experiences and needs. After attending a few events, I decided to join as a member to access the member only events. Membership opened several opportunities to gain strong referral sources as well as direct client leads. I was very surprised how quickly a few connections generated direct referrals and prospect meetings. 

n my experience, membership to NBDA provides opportunities like the CEO forums and Lead Generation events to gain deeper relationships and business focus. Also, my clients are positively impacted because I can connect them to other entrepreneurs and business professionals as synergies arise. NBDA also provides a platform for me to stay informed of various industry topics from experienced professionals that share their knowledge and experience with NBDA throughout the year. I highly recommend NBDA as a business development, educational and professional development platform.
