Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

It’s my birthday, and I’m taking the day off, but I needed to say this to you, so here goes:

Looking Back, Looking Ahead: IABC/Washington’s January Chapter Meeting

Estimated Reading Time: 2 minutes

I know it must seem like IABC/Washington‘s the only thing on my mind at present – I assure you it’s not. But I did want to let you know about what I think will be a terrific event as we usher in 2010. And given how crazy the holidays get, I wanted to get the word out earlier rather than later.

Our first chapter meeting next year will bring together some of the smartest people in the DC metro area to look at the changes (often dramatic) that our business has seen […]
