Second Frankford Business & Professional Association Meeting of the Year

 

The Frankford Business and Professional Association had a GREAT general meeting this morning! We welcomed two guest speakers, Iola Harper of InGoodCompany LLC and George Van Note from the City’s Health Department.

Iola, who runs classes and workshops on small business marketing, gave a wonderful presentation on the basics of marketing your business on a budget. Topics included how to target your ad campaign to a specific group of consumers as well as how to tap into resources that are readily available, such as social media and news outlets.  You can visit her online at igcphilly.com.

George Van Note, Program Manager at the city’s Office of Food Protection, focsued on food safety for special events open to the public.  He discussed what types of licenses are needed from the City when planning a special event, as well as the methods and requirements for safely serving food at special events.

We hope you’ll be able to join us at our next meeting, June 20th at 8:30a at Frankford Aria Hospital (4900 Frankford Ave), where we will hear from the Tobacco Control Project and The Business Center.
