Right on the heels of our record-setting month we run smack into struggling for entries (isn’t that just like running an SBE?)! I have a BIG Thank You to all SBEs with 100% completed applications for enduring my “get out the contest entry” emails.
So, this month we’ve got 3 entries from 3 new-comers to the Contest Arena: We’ve got valuable insights on embracing the off-site meeting, the trickle-down benefits of professional networking, and a great take on the benefits of hiring Veterans & students.
Thanks for coming! This month’s voting has ended but, please, check out the entries! We’ll reveal the winner by May 30th!
The company with the most votes gets promoted on the Supplier Connection web portal for the month of June. Voting ends Tuesday evening, May 28th at 8:00PM Eastern. Check back often to see what happens!

Reminder: Your Supplier Connection Anniversary is coming!
What does that mean for you? It means you have to do 2 things: 1. Log in at least once every 12 months: If you don’t, your account (no matter if your application is %100 Complete or not) will be Deactivated. 2. Verify your Company Profile: Log in to the Supplier Connection portal and verify your Profile within a year of the date you completed it, otherwise your Profile won’t be visible to any buyers.
Do that right now before you forget: http://Supplier-Connection.net.
