On October 12th the Professional Consultants Association of Central New York had its first meeting of the new year. Our presenter was Nasir Ali of Upstate Venture Connect, a non-profit organization that helps new and emerging businesses find both business structure and capital to work with towards multiple goals. One of those goals is working towards keeping talent in the central New York area. The other is helping those businesses grow so they’ll create new and good paying jobs in the community.

At the final meeting of the year for the Professional Consultants Association of Central New York, our presenter will be John Hunt, a long time professional in the field of broadcast media sales, working with numerous companies over the years in the Syracuse area. He will be specifically addressing ways that small and independent businesses can use this medium to market themselves and drive more business their way.

Although not every meeting has a confirmed presenter, we’d like to share with you what’s upcoming for the rest of the year as much as possible, including our official meeting notice for our next meeting:

At the PCA meeting this coming Friday, December 9th, the presenter will be Rick Olszewski of Peak Performance speaking to us on the topic of Artful Negotiation.

On October 14th starting at 8AM, the Professional Consultants Association meeting will feature Mitch Mitchell of SEO Xcellence talking about Social Media for Business. This will be a truncated presentation from his presentation last summer titled “Making A Splash With Social Media Marketing”.
