Threat of ice moves Networking event

Due to the probability that something (ice, snow) would fall somewhere in the Atlanta metroplex (and we Southerners tend to shut down everything based on just the threat of bad weather), our International Networking Day team decided on Wednesday to reschedule the IND event to Thursday, March 24th.  It will still be held at the Gwinnett Civic Center.

A major consideration was for our Expo booth vendors and our speakers, some of whom are traveling long distances and they needed to know early whether to travel or not.

On the bright side, you now have extra time to invite someone you would like to build a relationship with to come along with you!  Also, our VIP tickets sold out, so rescheduling has allowed us to rearrange and make more space available for those interested in participating in the special Q&A session over lunch with the conference speakers.  If  you are interested in upgrading your regular admission to a VIP ticket or purchasing a VIP ticket, please email melinda@referrals4life.com.  Due to the limited quantity available, VIP tickets will not open to the public via our store.

So update your calendars now.  Let’s hope our groundhog, General Beauregard Lee, was right and spring is early!  We’ll see you on March 24th for a fantastic International Networking Day and celebrate the “big thaw” instead of the “big freeze.”
