motion for BiZBashFla, the one-stop resource and guide

for the sales and marketing of BiZBashFla, including
the BiZBashFla Event Style Reporter newspaper, the BiZBash.com/fla
Web Site and BiZBashFla Event and Meeting Expo - The
Fresh Idea Show.

fun, excitement and so much aesthetic beauty. It's time
to give those who truly make the event their 15 minutes
of fame," she says.
