Greetings!

A week of MegaNetworking - East Side Black Business Network is kicking off with a meeting on Thursday May 12 sponsored by ESNDC. Then the AAPI Small Business EXPO is this coming Saturday May 14th. See the EXPO schedule and plan to stop by, catch a workshop, seek out the ESABA booth, and do some superconnecting in the Exhibit hall.
