For those area residents looking to expand their professional network, a new group is forming in Howell to help them achieve that goal.
A new chapter of Network Plus Pro is scheduled to meet for the first time tomorrow at the on Route 9. Overall the organization has more than 5000 members so far and is growing with the Howell chapter being just one of the newest groups added to the roster.
The president of the Howell Chapter is Ray Passanante. Along with his wife Elaine they work as distributors of VEMMA, a liquid nutrition supplement, according to a press release from the organization.
Passanante and the rest of the members of the group "will be showing valuable strategies every week on how to network your business," the release said. "Our focus is to bring professionals from all industries together to create strategic alliances within the community."
At each meeting Passanante said members of the group will be challenged "think dynamically." That includes, "Who is going after the same target market as you are? Who is your best client specifically? Who do you want to meet? What are the top 3 reasons to do business with you," he said.
Ted Fattoross, the CEO and Founder of Network Plus Pro said he was excited to see a chapter starting here in Howell. "We are extremely excited to have Ray and Elaine on board," he said. "Our members and their businesses thrive because of the dedication of our members."
The CEO said he believes the organization can be a benefit to all its members. "It's about building and nurturing strong relationships, not just hunting the next deal," he said. "Ray and Elaine live this approach and have the skill set to show others how to do the same, and help them have their best year ever."
Tomorrow's meeting starts at 7:30 a.m. and there is no charge to attend. For more information you can check out their website.
