Letter From Greg Carter

2016 KBA President

Dear KBA Family,

I hope you have all been able to stay safe and warm through what has been a very unusual month for weather. In recent weeks at California Dreaming, we had a parking lot full of snow one day and guests sitting on our outside patio just a week later! I’m still scratching my head…

I’m looking forward to what promises to be a highly informative panel discussion at our February luncheon. Nancy Wright Whatley, Charles Ross and Drew Tonsmeire, all from Kennesaw State University, are our featured panelists. They will bring us all up to speed on what’s going on in regard to local economic development and share with us their ideas on how we might plug in and put our own businesses in advantageous strategic positions.

Please make plans to attend the 2016 KBA Business Expo on February 23rd – either as an exhibitor or an attendee. It’s being held at the KSU Continuing Education Center and starts at 4pm. If you’re not already aware, it’s the best event of its kind in our area, so don’t miss it. Thanks to LGE Credit Union and North Georgia Staffing for sponsoring this great event!

If you attended our January luncheon, you’ll recall that I asked you all to write an online review for another KBA member as part of our Building Relationships initiative. So have you completed your homework assignment yet? If not, let’s get cracking! In February, I’ll ask all of you to review your information in our member directory. Please make sure your contact info is current and accurate and that your business falls under the category that best describes you. We want to take our business to a KBA member whenever possible and we want you all to be easily found when members are trying to bring business to you!

If I can help any of you in any way, please let me know by contacting me at my new KBA email address — gregcarter@kennesawbusiness.org. It’s an honor to serve you.

Greg Carter
