Committee Members:
The purpose of the SoCal EXPO Committee is to plan and execute an outstanding annual conference. In order to accomplish this purpose, the committee will ensure the location of the conference is centrally located to allow participants to easily attend, provide outstanding speakers to share their industry knowledge, and to provide outstanding sponsors to share their products and services.

What are we working on:
  • Our primary goal is to increase attendance to the 2013 SoCal EXPO by doing the following items:
    1. Increasing marketing and advertising by revising the current brochure.
    2. Maintaining high caliber speakers and adding interesting and noteworthy general session speakers.
    3. Partnering with the membership committee to offer a combination EXPO and annual membership for new members.
  • Increase banker/provider assistance in marketing the conference internally and externally by appointing one "ambassador" for each major bank or service provider.
