ACN Welcomed Nearly 15,000 Independent Business Owners to San Jose, CA for Its International Training Event

ACN, the world’s largest direct seller of telecommunications and essential services, traveled to the west coast November 30 – December 2 for its International Training Event in San Jose, California, held at HP Pavilion. ACN welcomed nearly 15,000 Independent Business Owners (IBOs), who traveled from around the world to attend the event to receive training from the top leaders in ACN as well as hear from motivational speaker Andy Andrews.

“We are just coming out of our final event of 2012 in North America – and it was a tremendous event in every way,” said ACN President and Co-Founder Greg Provenzano. “Our training was absolutely top notch. We recognized countless top producers – the leaders and builders in ACN. And we made an incredible six-figure donation to Ronald McDonald House Charities – quite an accomplishment so close to the holidays. This certainly speaks to the truly generous nature of our IBOs. But most importantly, this event set the tone for an incredible 2013.”

The city of San Jose also felt the beneficial impact of ACN’s International Training Event. ACN featured a campaign to ‘Pay It Forward’ in San Jose, encouraging IBOs to perform random acts of kindness throughout the city. From the simple act of opening a door to providing food for the homeless, IBOs stepped up to make a difference around San Jose.

ACN’s International Training Event had a profound impact on its global charity, the Ronald McDonald House Charities. ACN raised $125,162 for the Ronald McDonald Houses of San Francisco and Stanford through donations from generous IBOs and ACN matching funds.

The next ACN International Convention will be held in Charlotte, N.C. February 15-17 at Time Warner Cable Arena. ACN will be kicking off its 20th Anniversary celebration as well as welcoming special guest speakers Donald J. Trump and SUCCESS Magazine publisher Darren Hardy.
