Each month, an ABWA Verdugo-Glen member presents a glimpse of what their profession, business, industry, and passion is all about during a short vocational presentation. These vocational speakers give other members the opportunity to learn about industries and professions they might not be aware of and members are eager to learn more about different professions that they might be interested in. Vocational Speakers sometimes turn into ‘Motivational Speakers’, as they tell members of how they came to their present success through hard work, tough times, and sometimes just being in the right place at the right time. Attending meetings will give members and guests an idea of the depth and breadth of our membership’s diversity. View our August Newsletter to learn about last month’s speaker.
