Month Wrap Up

By Sue Corning Hello All, It’s hard to believe it’s already June. The weather sure makes it seem like early spring instead of early summer. No matter what the weather, it’s time for summer brides to make their final decisions. If you have a bride that either has a lot of decisions to make or is slow at getting it done, you need to give her time limits and make her stick to them. If she doesn’t make the decision by the date you set, call and get a decision right then. If she can’t give you a decision, get a reason why not and work out a new plan. Stay dry, don’t burn, and enjoy the Rose Festival.

ABC Oregon

Month Wrap Up Dear Members, During May, I had the opportunity to introduce ABC to 3 different regions in

Oregon. I want to thank Amanda with the Salem Conference Center, Lynn at Thank you, Windrose Conference Center, and Kelly at Sunriver Resort for hosting the meetings. Also, thank you to The Sweetest Thing and SueThe Sweet Tooth for providing delicious sweets at the meetings. I was able to see from these meetings and responses I Corning received, vendors in these regions are interested in ABC. With some work the entire state will be represented in ABC. In May, we had 2 people join our branch. Angel Kavanaugh of Weddings by Angel transferred from Washington. Nyreshia Conwell with Envious Events came from the East Coast. We also recruited Nyreshia Conwell to the advisory board.

National Update The ladies in Arizona are working hard on the 2010 Business of Brides. This is going to be a really good conference. If you’re thinking of going, you want to get your reservation in before the price goes up again on September 15th. If you are a vendor and would like some national exposure, the Business of Brides might be for you. The ABC Annual Trade Show will be held at the Business of Brides on November 7th & 8th. For more information and/or to sign up, go to www.bridalassn.com.
