On November 2, 2018, Bast Amron hosted its First Annual Business Advantage Forum. This was a day of sharing best practices for building a powerful, engaging, workplace culture that fuels growth, facilitates hiring the best people, and builds a stronger community. The Forum also provided for plenty of interactive networking and connections with the other executives in attendance.

The Forum was underwritten by Bast Amron and in an effort to give back to the community, attendees were encouraged to make a donation. The proceeds were used to further support Bast Amron’s efforts in battling rare cancers with Cycle for Survival.
