Leveraging Partnerships with the National Black MBA Association Piedmont Triad Chapter
Greensboro, NC, Tuesday, February 12, 2013—The Piedmont Triad Chapter of the National Black MBA Association (TriadMBA.org) will host its first event in Winston Salem for 2013 entitled, Leveraging Partnerships. The event is slated for Thursday, February 21, 2013 from 6-8 pm at the Piedmont Club located at 200 West 2nd Street, Winston Salem, NC 27101. The event will feature former NBA player Mr. Antoine Smith, current Chairman and CEO of the Smith Gruppe, LLC. Leveraging Partnerships will be held at the Piedmont Club and all business owners, entrepreneurs, current MBA students, and recent college graduates are encouraged to attend. The cost for the event is $20 per person and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the NBMBAA Piedmont Triad Chapter Scholarship fund.
Leveraging Partnerships is an opportunity for past, current, and future companies to engage in a discussion that allows them to reach their target market in the African American community and enhance the relationship with nonprofits in the Triad. “Many companies are looking for nonprofits to donate to and collaborate with, but there is a lack of professional organizations in the area that seek the long-term relationships. Our goal is to empower companies with the tools, people, and marketing opportunities they seek for 2013 and beyond,” states chapter President Chisa D. Pennix-Brown, MBA.
Leveraging Partnerships will enable individuals to seek employment, sponsorship opportunities, and expose them to all the offerings of the NBMBAA Piedmont Triad Chapter. Advanced registration is required and can be found at http://www.TriadMBA.org. The event also serves as a precursor to the Carolinas Conference, which will be hosted by the chapter at the Greensboro, NC Downtown Marriot Hotel April 12-14, 2013. The Conference is a mini-version of the National Conference and is open to the public as it features a career fair, networking, luncheon, awards ceremony, and brunch.
