ACN Inc, the world’s largest direct seller of telecommunications, energy and other essential services hosted its International Training Event in Cleveland, Ohio, September 12-14. This event drew thousands of Independent Business Owners from many of the company’s 24 countries for three days of training, motivation and networking opportunities.
But this event left an even greater impact on the city of Cleveland and surrounding areas. With hotels and restaurants packed, city officials estimate ACN’s events bring millions into the local economy in just three days time. And while impacting the local economy is certainly icing on the cake for this company, it’s the children and the clown that are the heart and soul of ACN.
During the Cleveland Event, and at each of ACN’s events worldwide, the company collects donations for the local chapter of the Ronald McDonald House and then matches those donations dollar for dollar, presenting a check at the close of the event.
“At ACN, giving back is all part of who we are – it’s in our DNA,” said ACN Chairman and Co-Founder Robert Stevanovski “We believe that we have a corporate responsibility to leave these communities a little better off than when we arrived.”
On Sunday, September 14, just as the event was coming to a close, ACN presented a check to the Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland for an incredible $100,590.12. According to the Development Director of the Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland, Amy Pausche, ACN went above and beyond. “Our job is to help others and improve their quality of life, and you did exactly that. Because of you, we can continue to help more families every day,” said Pausche.
ACN’s next large-scale event will be held in Phoenix, AZ, December 5-7, 2014.
