Step back in time and join us for a BCA Halloween Carnival on Friday, October 30th, filled with all your favorite carnival characters. Mimes and Clowns and performers of all types. We’ll have scary side show guests and games. Show up hungry because the carnival is host to all types of sweets and treats. You’ll want to blend right in with the crowd by arriving in costume and competing for best dressed.
For six years running Nicole Miller of Philadelphia has put in the effort to honor the hard working, intelligent, and Fashionable women of Philadelphia. The 19 Most Fashionable Women event is held annually at The Bellevue XIX Restaurant, and appropriately, this year’s event was held on Monday, October 19th. The room was filled with #19 Alumni, influential philadelphia leaders, and a special guest appearance by Mayor Nutter. Congratulations to Mary Pat Kessler who is a 2015 #19 Most Fashionable winner, you truly deserve the honor!
We hope everyone is getting their costume ready for the BCA Black Label Halloween Party. There will be three competitions for best dressed; Single, Couple, and Group. So, be sure to get creative and show up to the BCA Halloween Party on Oct. 30th with some spooky sidekicks or a crazy costume.
Minding the Family Business; Joseph Anthony Roundtable #BCAProud @JARetreatSpa @JosephAnthonySalonSpa
A huge thank you to Joe Gaglioti of Joseph Anthony Retreat Spa and Salon, who hosted yesterday’s BCA Roundtable. The topic of Family Business is very relevant to our BCA Members. Thanks to all the thoughtful discussion at yesterday’s Roundtable from the BCA Members in attendance. A good point was made concerning hiring a non-family member, “hire for attitude and train for skill” in order to maintain the quality of environment. The conclusion was nearly unanimous that having a clear, and flexible succession plan is key! Thank you for believing in relationships and contributing to the BCA Braintrust!

A big thank you to Mitch Wienick of Kelleher Associates and Jill Aquino, who hosted their first BCA Roundtable yesterday. Participants engaged in the powerful topic, “What strategies and actions have you employed to accelerate business growth?” Alliance management was a term that was discussed. Another key talking point was the importance of existing clients, “do they know all your services?” Thanks to all the members who participated in the great conversation, we hope you will continue your relationship building.
