EVENT ALERT: Countdown to DNC 2016 Symposium DNC 2016 Symposium IN PHILLY MAY 12 - BE THERE

By Gloria Dulan-Wilson

Hello All:

Well, I'm happy to report that there is some interest and consciousness stirring among the Black Community of Philadelphia at last - I was beginning to wonder whether the news had completely gone over everybody's heads - but hark, the Philadelphia Urban League is throwing out the first trial balloon to engage local Philadelphia Black businesses in planning for this upcoming affair.

So, if you haven't yet thought about it, now's your chance to get some insight as to where and how you may fit in with the upcoming festivities.    And while I say festivities, you may be thinking that it's all politics.  But no....it's also fun and games; it's about schmoozing, about accommodations, visiting the best venues Philly has to offer, meeting and interfacing with Philadelphia residents and representatives.  All that and then some - while deliberations are made during day, merry is made during the evening.  Philadelphia has a opportunity to shine like not since the Bi-Centennial - and then some.  But you need to know the who, what, wheres, whens and what's happening to be a part of this - we're the new mecca  and it starts long before the actual convention - so make it your business to be at the meeting on May 12, and get as much information, inspiration and communication as you possibly can.  

And don't say I didn't tell you so - because I'm telling so - right now.

Bring your notes, business cards and an open mind - there's a lot to do!!!

Stay Blessed & 
Gloria Dulan-Wilson
