Brains, Bodies & Advice Needed!
by Tom Davidson, President-Elect
TomDavidsonIf you were at the January 16 chapter meeting on Social Networking with David Nour, then you saw the energy and spiraling growth of NSA-Virginia, including 45 visitors to one of the most exciting chapters in the Nation.  As your president-elect and with the help of many, I have started to make initial plans to keep this spirit alive and thriving in the new NSA year, which begins July 2009 and continues through June 2010.

And Now A Word From Your President...
We got our 2009 programs
off to a rousing (and perhaps 'dousing') start with David Nour on Social Networking.  When David commented that his information would be like drinking from a fire hose, he wasn't joking!
Over 85 people attended and took tremendous value from the program.  In the afternoon bonus session, he continued with more resources and also some individual reviews of online presence.  I see lots of updates posted on LinkedIn profiles in the past few days.  Wow, what a great kickoff!
We'll continue with our stellar lineup with Ford Saeks, marketing guru, on February 20th in Chesapeake.  Ford's program will provide a wealth of direct and internet marketing strategies that are practical, proven and implementable.  
Be sure to be there and invite your colleagues in consulting, training and coaching.   
I look forward to seeing all of you at our upcoming programs!!
