    We had a wonderful meeting last Friday! Thanks to all the members and guests who attended our morning meeting. Special thanks to Angelo Boer, Dir. of Communications at Catholic Charities, for sharing his testimony about trading in his iZod for an apron. Angelo talked about his many lessons learned over 40 years of service, including: making prayer a daily habit, focusing on the mission, and remembering that the most important person is the person in front of you. (Due to technical difficulties, we were unable to process photos. Sorry.)

    Your membership in The Catholic Business Network of Baltimore entitles you to participate in the Office Depot discount program. This program delivers prices at significant discounts to retail prices (15% to 50% depending on item purchased)

    For some time Office Depot had been working on amending the method used by organizations to provide this discount program. Participants must use a Store Purchasing Program Card when items are purchased.

    This past week, CBNB received its Store Purchasing Program cards. At our meeting on June 28, 2013 we will be distributing this new Store Purchase Cards to members. Additionally, we will provide details on our web site on how to download the form.

    Personal testimony from Jim Randisi: "I had the opportunity to use this card a few days ago. I was able to purchase a $69 HP Ink Cartridge for $58."
