The Charlotte Business Owners group is a forward thinking gr
oup for business owners to come together\, network\, and learn through hel
Our meetings begin with introductions aroun d the room (while passing around cards and ordering lunch)\, then topical business presentations. After the presentations\, there is more networking and then we wrap-up the meeting.
The Charlotte Business Owners Networking group is a very unique group because it allows you to leverage powerful business tools like....
< br />Your net worth is determined by your network! Our structured networki ng events provide a perfect opportunity to form and nurture lasting busine ss relationships. We also teach you how to become an effective networker.< br />
Each event features presentations that focus on principles you can apply to grow your business.
Interact with fellow business owners to find solutions to the challenges you face. Sometimes all it takes is a fresh p erspective to solve a problem.
Become A Power Networker
As a business owner or entrepreneur\, are you serious about using netw orking to grow your businesses? Networking matters whether you want new cu stomers\, repeat business\, referrals or attention of potential investors. However\, it is seldom taught anywhere and consequently most networkers f ail to get adequate return out of their investment in business networking meetings.Business networking is not about exchanging cards! There are tool s such as elevator pitches\, one-on-ones\, strategic alliances\, follow up s and social media that you need to master. Whether you are a pro or a new bie\, our tools help you tremendously in honing your business networking s kills. Our events are quality events that help you grow into a power netwo rker who gets real business out of networking meetings. We also strive to create a synergistic referral network for you.
Marketing Platfo rm
You can also become a sponsor of the group or by doing a spo tlight presentation. Spotlight presentations are informational/general bus iness type of presentations that are typically non-industry specific.
Knowledge is a business owner’s b iggest asset. Our workshops give you practical tools to help you maintain an edge in the highly competitive world of business.
· Do you know how to set business objectives?
· How often do you do str ategic planning?
· Would you like to master sales skills?
Dedicated business workshops cost hundreds of dollars and most smal l business owners do not have the time and money to take advantage of them . That is why our events feature condensed workshops that focus on just on e aspect of business. What is more\, you get to mastermind as you interact with fellow business owners to find out how the information applies to yo ur business! Become a spotlight speaker and promote your business.
< br />Looking forward to helping you expand your business through referrals and education. Let's make networking work.

Takes place in Historic Downtown Wilmington\; Parade startin
g point at Front Street & Hanover Street.
The Martin Luther Kin g Jr. Celebration Committee is proud to continue their work in the celebra tion and honor of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. While they have long had a wonderful parade commemorating his life\, legacy\, and birthda y\, they are now committed to extending that celebration into a week of mo tivational events to raise awareness and motivate the community. Please vi sit the website for more information on all of these events at www.mlkjrce lebration-senc10.com.
The actions of the Reverend Dr. Marti n Luther King Jr. (MLK) brought about significant changes in the lives o f all Americans. Therefore the MLK Celebration Committee\, a subcommit tee under the African American Heritage Foundation of Wilmington\, Inc \, (AAHFW) representing the Greater Wilmington area seek to pay homage t o an American hero through educational seminars\, religion events\, ar t and culture events\, displays and social gatherings which enhance the quality of life in our communities.
The AAHFW was founded to fill a void in our community. So sponsoring this week of events perfectly fits our mission and helps to build our capacity to do even more to addre ss and improve racial relations\, community and visibility of the positive achievements and contributions of African Americans throughout our histor y. We seek to incorporate health and wellness concerns in our annual celeb ration.
Wilmington is a particularly important place to fully c ommemorate the work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. because of the continu ing impact of the 1898 coup d’etat\, overthrowing an elected African A mericans government\, which radically disenfranchised African Americans here. These actions and inactions costed many their lives and many more their rightfully owned land. In addition\, the heroic efforts of the Wil mington Ten\, who fought tirelessly to desegregate the local schools\, m ust be remembered. A little known fact is that Dr. King was due to arriv e in Wilmington\, NC but postponed his arrival to assist striking sanita tion workers with their issue in Memphis\, Tennessee where he met his un timely demise.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is a well known and acce
pted national hero\, and his birthday is an opportunity to bring people
together and help everyone again understand the context and history surr
ounding his life from the perspective of Southeastern North Carolina. It
is our hope to be able to build from this week of events to other event
s which allow us to more fully commemorate additional important figures
and events in African American
19th Annual Coming Together Conference. A conference to cele
brate and renew our commitment to working together to improve the lives of

n with special needs to reach their full potential. One way we can do th
at is to provide our community with the latest information about a variety
of disability issues and presentations about strategies proven to work.
