The “Nice” Department

Taking a cue from Bernie Miklasz, columnist for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, we’ll be posting some BNI-related community stuff now and then on the old BPN Blog…

Springfield Design AssociationFirst up, from BPN member Hope Faller of GHN Architects/Engineers, is advance notice for the upcoming Springfield Design Association Expo for 2011. The Expo won’t be held until November 10th, but interested parties who would like to reserve a vendor booth can get a discounted rate if purchased before September 1st. For more information about the Expo and about being a vendor, you can download the official SDA 2011 Vendor Packet here.

Metropolitan Bridal ExpoNext, former BPN member Abby O’Sullivan of Amoré SkinSpa will have a booth in this coming weekend’s Metropolitan Bridal Expo at the Springfield Exposition Center. The show will be on Sunday, August 28th, from 11:00am to 4:00pm. Admission is only $5 at the door; more information about the show can be found on the Metropolitan Bridal Expo Facebook event page. If you go, be sure to stop by Abby’s booth and say “Hi!”

Ron (“Ken”) Owens of Midwest Mobile, and a member of the H.I.T. Referral Network chapter of BNI, is offering a CPR Class at discounted rates for BNI members of all chapters. The class will be held on Wednesday, September 14th, 11:00am, at the Pasta Express on West Republic. For more information, contact Ron at (417) 300-1762, or download this flyer.

Finally, remember that the BPN Marketing Power Team will hold a Social Media Q&A this Thursday at Quincy Magoo’s on Battlefield, starting at 3:30pm. If you have questions about how to do any of the online social activities outlined in our “Bee Social” game, bee sure to bee there!
