1st Annual Partnership Appreciation Holiday Charity Social

December 12, 2019

Management Concepts was pleased to recognize the hard work and dedication of partner organizations, such as FEW, by hosting our first-ever partnership appreciation event. All members of our partner organizations were invited to attend and enjoy an evening of refreshments, networking, and festivities while supporting a good cause. This year we selected So Others Might Eat (SOME) to raise money and collect much-needed non-perishable food and toiletry items to fight homelessness and poverty. FEW displayed marketing materials at a dedicated tabletop during the event and FEW National President Karen Rainey spoke on behalf of FEW.

FEW National Training Program 2019

January 16, 2020 

Management Concepts was proud to return as an Emerald Sponsor to the 41st Annual BIG NTI in Dallas, TX. Our second annual Two-Day Leadership Course was a great success, with a full room and waitlist. Our exhibit hall booth was also busy, with the Selfie EmerStand taking center stage. FEW members had a blast taking selfies and recording gifs with their friends and colleagues.
