Moorestown, NJ – On Saturday, June 22, 2019, Senator Troy Singleton, Assemblyman Herb Conaway, and Assemblywoman Carol Murphy will jointly host a FREE Men’s Success Seminar at Rowan College at Burlington County in Mount Laurel.  Called “Pathways to Success: A Seminar for Men,” the event will take place at Votta Hall, 300 College Circle, and will run from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Anyone interested in attending can RSVP online at www.senatorsingleton.com/mens_workshop2019.

The legislators are hosting the event in collaboration with UIH Family Partners, Magnificent Men Mentoring Group, and Rowan College at Burlington County (RCBC).

“The goal of this event is to provide men of all ages an opportunity to achieve success or perhaps further the success they’ve already achieved – whether it’s by learning new ways to manage their money, how to grow their business, how to be a better dad, or how to ace a job interview,” said Senator Singleton.

“I am proud to co-sponsor this event because these workshops coupled with the dress for success business attire donations will begin to shape participants’ mindsets in a positive way.  Success requires showing up, exerting one’s best effort, and continuing to work diligently until desired results are achieved.  This event will help solidify those very important principles,” said Assemblyman Conaway.

The panel discussion will focus on the Secrets of Success – how to achieve success by overcoming major obstacles in life. It will include Carter Patterson, Manager of Operation Fatherhood, UIH Family Partners; Dr. Michael Cioce, President of RCBC; Quandell Iglesia, founder and President of SNJ Millennials; and Bernard Grant, owner of Vision Hair Salon.
