On October 25 - 27 Executive Director Arnetta Bailey, Ministry Coordinator Mary Stephens and National Vice-President Faye Goode attended the annual conference and trade show of Connect Faith in Orlando Florida. Connect Faith is an annual conference and appointment-only trade show that “connects” faith-based meeting and event planners with meeting and event suppliers/experts from around the country. This annual conference of Connect Faith puts both meeting planners and event suppliers in one place at one time allowing each the opportunity to network and understand the needs of the other. There were morning devotions, educational workshops, conference speakers, trade show appointments and a community service project. Throughout the three days they were at Connect Faith, Arnetta, Mary and Faye met with over 80 meeting/event suppliers along with attending several workshops focused on planning and holding successful conferences/events. They also participated in the community service project for “No Child Hungry”, a feeding program which distributes nutritional meals in the United States and abroad. Connect Faith attendees packed over 83,000 meals for “No Child Hungry”! Connect Faith was truly an enlightening experience and provided CWC the opportunity to make vital contacts that will assist us in planning our national meetings and conventions.
