The next Ashland Business Association (ABA) meeting will be Tuesday October 1, at the Ashland Library, Community Room, 66 Front Street. Early networking is 6:30-7 p.m. The program, 7-8:30 pm, features a workshop, “Turning Your First Impression Into a Lasting Impression” led by Roy Melnick.
The first half of the ABA workshop will address what small business owners can do to create a lasting first impression. The second half will address what the ABA can do. Attendees will learn proven techniques for creating intentional relationships that support business success.
Melnick is the executive director of a growing, non-denominational Christian church, Connect Community Church in Ashland that emphasizes people, prayer and productivity. He has a degree in business management from Bentley University.
“First impressions are very important. People make a judgment, conscious or unconscious,” Melnick said. “You need to make sure your business is someplace people want to come back to. We’ll look at what works in the current business climate from the prospective of a growing church.”
Also on the agenda is a short presentation by Leslie Marci, president of the Ashland Education Foundation, Inc.
