Dear IFN Members
 
I hope you are well.

IFN RENEWALS
The following members have renewed their membership in the last month (from 15th April to today). Thank you for your continued support:

Danton International Logistics Co., Ltd., China

SALES ENQUIRIES AND RECOMMENDATIONS
Despite global economies being hit, forwarders continue to contact us about joining IFN. Recently, for countries where we have space, we’ve received enquiries from China, Egypt, India, Nigeria and the USA. We’ve also received applications from India, Nigeria. We’ll let you know if any of the enquirers are strong enough to join our elite group.

If you know of forwarders looking for a network, please mail Jess with your recommendations. If a recommendation joins us within a month of you passing us their details, we will discount your next renewal fee, as a thank you for your help.

ZOOM SOCIALS
We had another very enjoyable Zoom Socials this month. Jess loved seeing you all and hearing your latest news. Thank you to all who joined us and shared your thoughts, experiences and knowledge.

If you’d like to join us at the next one (next Tuesday), please find the details below:

 NETWORKING AND CONNECTING
We are sometimes asked for our best tips for making the most of your network membership. We recommend the following:

> Read our network updates (like this one) 😊 Update mails are also sent when new members join us; please look out for them and welcome the new members into the network. This gives a great first impression and means they are more likely to think of your company, when they have an enquiry.

> Make sure your profile page is fully up to date. Mail Jess if you wish to make additions or amendments, and she will assist you in getting it looking at its best.

> Join the IFN Zoom Socials to further connect with members.

> Send Jess your company news regularly, so she can feature you on our news page, and in the next newsletter.

> Join the IFN WhatsApp Group to connect and share with other members, as well as see rate requests sent via WhatsApp.

IFN PHYSICAL MEETING PROPOSED DATES: 21 – 23 APRIL 2024
As some of you will know, I proposed running a meeting for you in 2022 in Croatia, as well as running one this year in Costa Rica. Unfortunately, uptake for the physical meeting was too low on both occasions for me to go ahead and commit to a contract. I know, however, that some of you have been asking Jess recently when it’s likely we will have a physical meeting. So here are the proposed dates for next year:

21 – 23 April 2024

We like to surprise our members with the next year’s location at our annual meeting, so we can’t tell you where it is until next month, when we’re in Costa Rica at our sister networks’ events. Trust that it will be held in a main hub.

We need you to get behind the event, to make it viable. I want it to be worth your while for the costs and the travel time. 

Please let Jess know your response, either YES or CAN’T COMMIT. It would be wonderful to meet you in person, so let’s hope everyone gets behind the event to make it happen. If enough IFN Members say yes, we’ll host the event for you next year. I hope you’ll commit to it this time.

Take good care,

Kelly
