Besides accreditation, which includes a commitment to BBB’s Code of Business Practices built on eight standards for Trust, networking can also help create trust. Networking is a good way to connect with new people, build relationships and gain knowledge. Establishing a personal relationship with those in the community can help your organization stand out as people tend to do business with those they connect with and trust.
Thank you to all of you who joined us at our networking event held at the ACA Club of Overland Park on February 16th. This was our first networking event we’ve had in a while and we were happy with how many people attended!
The event was held from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm and had approximately 75 people in attendance. The ACA Club, a BBB accredited business, was gracious enough to allow us to host the event at their office near 103rd and Metcalf in Overland Park.
While most of the night was dedicated to networking and socializing along with eating way too much food, we did give a short presentation about BBB’s 100 year history.
You may be thinking, “oh how boring!” but it was quite the opposite. We’ve received a lot of great comments telling us how much they loved the presentation and event itself. There were also wonderful testimonials from accredited businesses and charities about what our organization’s mission and services mean to them.
In case you missed the event, we’re looking to have another one this summer and we hope you’ll attend. Stay tuned for more information on upcoming events at http://www.bbb.org/kansas-city/login or contact our office at 816-421-7800.
