The SpouseBUZZ team is super excited about taking our next LIVE event to Fayetteville, North Carolina, home to Ft. Bragg and Pope Air Force Base. If you've never attended one of these events, you are in for a real treat. Soon, you'll be hearing just how fun and important our LIVE events are. Not from us, but from military spouses who have been there and gone through the experience. For now, you can read the account of one milspouse/journalist who attended SpouseBUZZ LIVE San Diego.
When I registered to attend the Spouse Buzz Live San Diego conference for military spouses, I was expecting to maybe meet some nice people and get some decently helpful information. After all, this was just a free conference.
My expectations were extremely low compared to what I actually experienced.
I walked out a bit shelled shocked from having had such a great time and being treated like a VIP for the day. And to think I actually considered not going!
As was said recently, "this ain't your grandmother's event." SpouseBUZZ LIVE is truly an "electrifying" experience. As one past attendee told me, "opportunities like this don't come along very often, you have to grab them when they do."
Fayetteville is a great location. It's a decent drive from places like Charleston, Camp Lejeune, Ft. Jackson, the Virginia/Washington, DC/Maryland area and Ft. Stewart. This is an event which is ideal for a "girls weekend." Some of you have already said you're planning to caravan to SpouseBUZZ LIVE, and we're going to reward a few of you for doing just that. Everyone in the caravan that brings the most spouses to SpouseBUZZ LIVE (outside of a 60 mile radius from Fayetteville) will receive special prizes, on top of the free goodies that each attendee will automatically receive, so start coordinating your girls road trip now.
Details: SpouseBUZZ LIVE Ft. Bragg/Pope will take place on December 1, 2007 from 9:00 - 3:00 at the Holiday Inn Bordeaux. If you're coming from out of town, the Holiday Inn will offer you a special, military rate (space available).
