May 2012 Club Bulletin



While the EXPO 2012 Agenda had already been announced, the May issue revealed much of the information that EXPO attendees were waiting for.  In this issue, detailed articles on all EXPO workshops and seminars are included, highlighted by guest speaker and bar expert Chris Lenahan, author of "The Little Black Bar Book" who will be providing the "Wow Factor" presentation on Tuesday, August 28th.  There is also a full-page article for each workshop, including "The Do's and Don'ts of Twitter and Facebook" (social media marketing), "How Football Can Save Your Club" (sports promotions), "It's Time to Face the Music" (DJ debate) and "Design on a Dime" (club renovations for less than $10,000).  And for a taste of what you can expect from our three "State of the Union" keynote speakers—Michael J. Peter, Joe Redner and John Gray—we've selected a few of their most incendiary statements from previous Expos and Club Bulletin articles.
