Hello NW Wed Pro’s!
It’s been a very busy start to the new year for many of you. 2011 started off with a bang. Everyone was gearing up for 2 months of

We had a wonderful networking meeting of the NW Wed Pro network on February 9th at The Ambridge Event Center on MLK Blvd. in Portland. MacKenzie Bullock hosted and provided a wonderful meal including a chicken & pasta dish, salad, garlic bread and dessert. It was delicious. We filled the room to capacity for this meeting. We had a great educational speaker, Michelle Brubaker, who taught us all the tricks and tips for using FREE optimization on the internet for your website and business. A $20 cash door prize was won by Ryan
