Each month The Presidents’ Council will draw from it’s full membership list 2 businesses, one in retail and one in professional services, who will receive free marketing via The Presidents’ Council website and social media outlets during that entire month. We will push for support and patronage to the businesses during that month and offer a booth/table at our next event to showcase their products and services!
