My name is Bev Crossen and I'm a small business owner. I am the owner of Farmhouse Tupelo and it is a business that has shopping, creative workshops and we are an event space. I can't imagine having a small business and not being a member of CDF. Something I look forward to every year is the IGNITE Leadership Conference. I am in awe every year and when you leave that one day conference you're thinking "wow, I can conquer the world...I want to be stronger professionally, personally.." So if you are looking for an organization where you want to grow - you want to help grow your business - help be a better advocate for your community - to be the change for a better tomorrow - I say #joinCDF.
