Contacts N' Coffee - July Edition!

Contacts N' Coffee - July Edition!

Our Contacts N' Coffee events allow you the opportunity to introduce yourself, your position, the entity that you represent, what it is that your entity provides and, importantly, what entity/entities might make a great referral for you.


It is more important now than ever to reach out and develop strong business connections! We are all in this together and it is a lot better to not have to overcome these challenges that we currently face alone.


Spend around 1 1/2 hours of your time to possibly establish those connections that provide the catalyst for taking your operation to a higher level. Remember, sometimes, it takes only ONE connection to make drastic improvements to your income. So what are you waiting for? Put on that professional smile, take time to speak, take time to listen and see what possibilities can happen!


While you are at it, enjoy a tremendously delicious breakfast from Alamo Tamales! As mother used to state: "But, you gotta eat!"


We are proud to share that our Featured Presenters for this event are Dr. Rebecca Berens, Owner and Founder of Vida Family Medicine and Liz Castro-Vega of Service Corporation International!


Learn from Dr. Berens about how individuals can receive high-quality healthcare and businesses can provide high-quality healthcare for both themselves and their employees through her innovative Membership Program. This care can greatly assist those without insurance or those with insurance that have high deductibles!


Learn from Ms. Castro-Vega the importance of planning ahead until the very end. Her pre-arranged funeral plans are affordable and relieve a tremendous burden from your loved ones both financially and emotionally. And, if you are an Active GNCC Member, you can receive a special discount!
