Why a Douglass Alumni Business Listing?

During recent Douglass alumni deliberations regarding vendors for a particular project, the subject came up about businesses that were owned by Douglass graduates and family members. Not one business listing of such exist. CFN wants to and plans to change that.

The alumni is a thriving and growing organization. It's perfectly fine to do business with your own. It is perfectly fine to have an alumni business listing for those ocassions when the alumni chooses to consider hiring from within.

In the upcoming weeks, CFN will be seeking the collaboration with high ranking Douglass organizational administrators to assist in making such a listing a tool to be used by the alumni to it's maximum financial benefit.

This listing is needed. And the success of it is in great part up to the effort that is put into it by members, family members and others of the Douglass community.

The standards will be set high. Businesses that do not see an increase in their bottom line for being listed in such a directory, CFN will personally work towards finding out why, and how to reverse such trends.

This undertaking will continue regardless; and will for sure evolve into something that will be a benefit and a plus to the Douglass community.
