Senator Ross Speaks at Networking Event

Senate Minority Whip Richard Ross attended the Business Builders Association's Networking Meeting on June 22 to speak to members about owning a small business. The meeting, held at Guido’s Italian Restaurant in Norfolk, provided members with an opportunity to meet other small business owners and promote their own enterprises.

As the owner of R.J. Ross Funeral Home in Wrentham, Senator Ross is well equipped to speak about the experience of being a business owner. He was able to share his own knowledge, as well as the importance of networking. Senator Ross also brought informational pamphlets for members, containing helpful information on networking and small business ownership.

“As a small business owner myself, I certainly understand the importance of networking,” said Senator Ross. “The BBA’s Networking Meetings allow members to do just that, in a friendly and personal setting. This type of program fosters the lasting and beneficial relationships among business owners that are so important.”
