When the going gets tough, the tough get going! As you may know, the WBFN website has been compromised and is under maintenance for security reasons to ensure that members will not be affected, which is our primary concern. However, the Family Network is alive and in fact more lively than ever!
The Professional Development Program kicked off our Career Lab, a brand new WBFN initiative that consists of a series of workshops and options for further support to globally mobile professionals. Another event promoted by the Professional Development Program is the seminar planned on October 5, “Making the Move from Employee to Business Owner”, given by a franchise expert on why former employees make great business franchise owners.
Our Social Team is very active as well. In September it successfully organized a Get-Together in Great Falls, MD and a Fall Picnic in Belle Haven Park and Marina, VA, with the purpose of introducing families to each other, sharing experiences and socializing over fun, food, games, and laughter!
And what about our Worldwide Team? The first WBFN Champion’s Conference of the year received exciting feedback, and there is a new Facebook group dedicated to the WBFN Champions, who are a crucial resource for our organization and for all the relocating families.
These are just some of the activities and events we organized in September and we are planning for the incoming Fall season. Waiting for the website to come up again, this is a great time to join WBFN on Facebook to follow our program and information updates. Just do a search for WBFN and add us as a friend!
A warm greeting to you and your families!
