Guest Speaker: Cary Dunston, President and Chief Executive Officer, Chairman of the Board, American Woodmark
Topic: The Power of Story
Description: Everyone has a story to tell; it’s what makes them unique. The Power of Story is transformative and only adds to connections and bonds you can make with those you work with on a daily basis. Please join the Young Professionals Group as we learn about the power of story from American Woodmark President and CEO, Cary Dunston. Cary wants you to either dress or bring something along that tells others something about yourself. Don't worry about looking formal or informal, just have fun with your attire or anything else they can think of that will help us to learn more about them. Our mixer will be at the brand new American Woodmark Headquarters, snacks and refreshments will be provided. Get excited to learn about the Power of Story.
