Who doesn't want (or need) more?
In our ongoing effort to address the needs of our membership, BALIF is finally giving some love to a group that has long deserved more attention - our partners and firm owners.
Partners and firm owners have always been the bedrock of the BALIF community. These are the folks that are first to pitch-in when BALIF events need to be staffed. They're always on the front line when it comes to sponsorships, donations, and gift-giving. They're also the go-to contacts for job referrals, resume reviews, and mock interviews that have helped so many of our members find employment.
In appreciation for all that our Partners and firm owners do, Jamie and I created the BALIF PARTNERS EXCHANGE. Our goal was to create a vibrant and thriving LGBT environment that invites networking and an exchange of business among the LGBT community.
We held our inaugural luncheon last week at the San Francisco City Club. We had ten spots - which "sold-out" within hours. Our topic was Business Development: What Works and What Doesn't? We brought together a wonderful and diverse collection of BALIF partners and firm owners - all of whom were interested in generating more clients.
We plan to do this every month - with varying topics, and at different locations. But the basic foundation will be helping each other develop new clients and business. If you're interested in becoming a part of the innovative group, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We want BALIF to be the source of your next new client.
I look forward to seeing you soon...
