If you missed last Wednesday's meeting ...

Brenda Greenberg - Premier Designs

What do we ALL have in common?

We are all aging; our bones are becoming brittle, skin is wrinkling, muscles get weaker, energy levels plummeting. While eating healthy, and exercise make us feel better, they cannot stop us from aging. Let's talk hormones, what they can do for us as we age.

Join the CHLG members for this important presentation with Brenda Greenberg.

... You were indeed missed.

More importantly, Bring plenty of Business Cards and be ready to network!

Did You Know:

From: Lee Schearer,
To: My Fellow Chapel Hill Leads Group Members


Citizenship is defined as "the state of being vested with the rights and duties of being a citizen" (Random House Webster's College Dictionary).

When I was in high school a mandatory class, other than English, Math, History and Gym, was a course study on Citizenship. In that class students also learned how our government worked. It was the opinion of the School Board, educators and parents that students knew something about our past. Also, we were taught the meaning of "responsibilities, duties and our inherent rights as "citizens" of the United States of America. We were taught to invest ourselves in efforts that serve the greater good, and to leave a legacy that will endure and serve as a model for those who come after us.

The Chapel Hill Leads Group is somewhat of a course study of citizenship. While our members attend to build their individual business relationships, numerous members involve themselves in efforts that serve the greater good as evidenced by our past "Food Drive". Our core group of members understand the responsibilities and duties that come with good business practices. Together, as a group of folks who have a vast array of business experience, we can help you start your business, protect your assets and build a financial base that will see you through to retirement. The classroom is open every Wednesday morning.

I invite you to join us and witness for yourself why the Chapel Hill Leads Group is the premier business referral group in the region.

Support the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina

Attention CHLG Members - The Chapel Hill Leads Group's goal is to raise 100+ boxes of cereal a month. If everyone brought one box of cereal to two meetings this month, the Chapel Hill Leads Group would easily exceed the 100 boxes of cereal goal.
