Three Things for EO Nashville This Week

1. 30th Anniversary Celebration – Less than 2 weeks away!
June 5, 4-8pm at the Country Music Hall of Fame 
What better way to celebrate the 30th EO Anniversary than with founder Verne Harnish! Thirty years ago, a handful of young entrepreneurs came together with the idea to learn and grow through shared experiences, laying the foundation for what would become the Entrepreneurs’ Organization. Three decades later, we are proud to celebrate EO’s 30th anniversary, a significant milestone in our history and a testament to our impact as a global thought leader. Our Nashville celebration includes hearing from EO's founder, a brief State of the Chapter to look to our own future and a cocktail reception in the amazing Country Music Hall of Fame to end the evening. Come reflect on our collective progress, embrace our extraordinary culture and look ahead at more EO Nashville success and significance. Spouses/significant others are also welcome.

Register here for this epic event that you won't want to miss!
