Members and guests of the NAPW South Atlanta Local Chapter gathered on July 27th for a professional networking meeting at Monarch Tower in Monarch Center on Peachtree Road, in the heart of Atlanta’s prestigious Buckhead submarket. During the networking luncheon, members and guests learned networking tips from meeting host and expert Chi Chi Okezie and heard about exciting upcoming Chapter events, including the 2012 Georgia EXPO it will once again co-host with NAPW North Atlanta Local Chapter.
Members and guests enjoyed a delicious lunch catered by “F2O,” Fresh to Order’s Buckhead location. Catering Director Melissa Horbett made all the arrangements and graciously offered vouchers for 10% Off future orders to all Chapter attendees. After lunching on F2O’s amazing Asian and Southwest salads, delicious rolls and Panini sandwiches, mouth-watering croissants and brownies, and tasty raspberry mojito lemonade and refreshing teas, those vouchers will no doubt be used quickly!
