It may be the dogs days of summer, but we’re putting the leash on the upcoming Programming Year. The BWF Planning Session was held recently, including current board members and new volunteers Kerri Casarano, Mary Conway and Liz Sadwick.
Here are a few of the topics we covered:
- 2014 – 15 Programming: Our draft calendar contains a mix of events, day and evening, with topics to include The Business of Food; The Art of Leadership; Start Over or Stay Put; Undercover COO; and Malfunction or Malfeasance: Identifying Fraud.
- Macken Toussaint, Secretary, filled us in on the work she’s been doing to ensure records are in order and documents are on file.
- Donna Walsh, Treasurer, reported on our finances – all’s well and the books are in balance.
- Becky Blackler, Communications, provided an update on the myriad of ways we are reaching out to our member and friends, including our new blog, LinkedIn and Twitter.
Overall, our planning session was excellent, and we're very excited to share our new programs and events with all of you! In fact, be sure to save the date for our next program, The Business of Food, on Friday, September 19, 2014, 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. ET. Graciously hosted by Brown Rudnick, LLP, this program will feature local foodie all-stars who will share their recipes for business success!
