As a new Chamber member, PJ Weiland, ActionCOACH made it a point to attend several networking events, hoping to meet new people and make some new connections At a recent SOHO roundtable meeting, PJ mentioned that she had a last minute crisis and needed to find a new venue for her Profit Building Workshop. Also new to the Chamber, Chris Johnson from The Five Seasons Sports Club offered to let her use the facility for her meeting. “Eventually it became a long term solution for all of my 2012 monthly workshops,” commented Weiland. “Thanks to Chris for making what could have been a stressful situation into the perfect opportunity to partner with a fellow Chamber member!”

At a recent First Friday breakfast, Steven Elisco, Elisco Design Architects thanked Rick Glickman, Dream Kitchens for a referral that led to a project working on a day care center in Chicago. Glickman, who was helping to restore the kitchen at the facility, recommended Steve to help the center design ways to meet some of the life safety requirements.
