The Network surely hosted a substantive Professional Development Conference. I do not know of another such organization in our state devoted to the "professional development" of M/WBE professionals as the network. And, congratulations to Annette Stevenson and SAS for being a real partner of the network.

Good conference. All public MWBE staff should attend this type conference. Otherwise, where else do they get access to such information and peers?

Thanks so much for sharing. I really regret having missed the quarterly meeting (and seeing my friends)………again.
The presenters, the information, and the brief snippet of the “festivities” you shared from last week’s meeting are strong motivators for me to work through any scheduling conflicts or competing events in the future!!

Many thanks to the planning committee, our sponsors and participants. Another successful conference under our belts. It is my sincere hope that the best practices shared with us will benefit all in your professional capacities. The Network has survived for over twenty (20) years because of the true commitment for equity and equality for all. If you are not a member you are missing an important nourishment for your soul. Join us next year in Concord, NC the dates are November 13th and 14th at the Embassy Suites….See you there!

The Planning Committee would like to express a sincere “thank you” to Gina Dean for your wonder woman approach to helping us put together a fantastic conference!
From your savvy negotiation skills to your ability to know exactly what is needed and when, you are a valuable asset. Your star-quality personality is very engaging and provides a welcoming amount of down-home southern hospitality. You’ve added an extra special touch to our conferences for the last two years; the Network is greatly enhanced because of your involvement!


Hat’s off to Ms. Gina Dean – Conference MVP!!
