Did You Know:

From: Lee Schearer,
To: My Fellow Chapel Hill Leads Group Members


While change does not come easily sometimes it proves to be beneficial and I believe our new location, along with other changes to our program will prove to be exciting and profitable for our membership. Our meeting place is light and bright. We also will have access to audio/visual assets for those who need power-point presentations.

In the future we will be introducing programs that will help our membership grow their respective business, assist them in organizing effective time management skills along with other proven methods for sustainable business success.

I am excited about the future of the Chapel Hill Leads Group and I invite you to join me this Wednesday morning at our new location at the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce. I will open the door at 8:00 am. with a program start-time at 8:30-9:30 am. ( A one-hour program) with networking opportunity until 10:00 am..

Attention CHLG Members - The Chapel Hill Leads Group's goal is to raise 100+ boxes of cereal a month. If everyone brought one box of cereal to two meetings this month, the Chapel Hill Leads Group would easily exceed the 100 boxes of cereal goal.
