There are a lot of fun and educational events being planned for you. Please take part in the planning and other activities. We challenge all our St. Louis Chapter members to get involved,  and see how AFE improves your life.

Keeping it REAL

Commentary: The Internet and networking, improves communication, therefore the results. Email is only an improvement over snail mail, if you reply sooner than you would with conventional mail. Check your email daily, respond at the latest, a couple days, and you will improve your rapport with mutually beneficial contacts.

Tips:

Tour/Symposium AFE Host: Collect calling cards and post contact's email address on-line for those members who missed them.

Vendors/Speakers: Hand out copies of your speech topic and company information. Providing it on floppies and CDs makes more impact.

Chapter Webmasters: Utilize your web sites to give your sponsors and speakers maximum exposure; request articles to publish on your sites.
