Team McCrary

September 2013

Celebrate & Connect is an event you won't want to miss! From start to finish, you’ll be pumped up about all of the possibilities for your business! When you join in the excitement and attend a Celebrate & Connect meeting, you’ll have the opportunity to:

  • Meet new friends and connect with your team
  • Celebrate success – your own, and the success of other Consultants

  • Learn how to grow your business
  • Find out the latest news from Home Office, and hear what’s coming next

  • We hold meetings every other month from February to October, for a total of five amazing events each year. There’s much more than camaraderie to look forward to!

    Don’t miss out!

    To register to attend a meeting, simply click on the "Attend A Meeting" link and search by the Consultant ID number of the hosting Director or the city or state where the meeting is being held.

    Registration begins September 11 - 26 and Late Registration is Sept 30 - Oct 8 and costs $5. Simply go to the Celebrate & Connect page under the Events tab to register.

I have a conflict and can’t do it so wanted to offer it to you first! It’s a good one, I did it last year.
