Three Things for EO Nashville This Week

1. EO House Parties- 2 more to go!
The Carnegie and Rockefeller House Parties are next week, so if you have not yet registered, NOW is the time (registration links below)! If you missed your own House Party and would like to attend one of these, please come on! We also have some additional incentives for attending:

Each forum that has 100% participation will receive $300 (even if members have to attend a different House Party). In order to qualify for this incentive, members should plan to stay for the entire program.  
We will be raffling off 3, $100 Oak Hall gift certificates at each event.
The House with the greatest overall percentage of attendance will receive a Happy Hour at Van Elrods!  

As you’ve likely heard, we really want to honor the fact that EO members are in different “lifecycles.” During your Cocktail Party, we will be dividing you into different life cycle groups so you’ll have the opportunity to talk with those facing the same challenges – and also look to those who’ve already made it to the other side! Don't miss this event!

He’ll show you exactly how to solve the cross-generation communication, recruiting, retention and innovation challenge.These insights will drive immediate ROI for you and your business. This is also a great event opportunity for your Second-In-Command or leadership team!
