2020 - A Transformative Year
2020 was supposed to be our 30th Anniversary year, but like so many, we needed to pivot part way through our event planning and lead our community in a very different way. In March we began a series of virtual Lunch and Learns and Happy Hours. It was our way of staying connected to our alumni, help our community and be a safe place to learn with others.

The ability to take a step back from a situation, take on a new perspective and hold back from making conclusions based on emotions is what true leadership is about.
Slow Down! Networking is Not a Race
Networking is all about building relationships and determining how one can assist others without the expectation of receiving anything in return.
Seek to Understand - Especially When It's Most Difficult
Appreciating and understanding different viewpoints is a tool all leaders should old in high regard.
Eliminating bias, solving issues through facts rather than emotions, and appreciating varying backgrounds all play a role in prosperous and empowering work environment.
Show More Kindness
As social climate in our country continues to be rather chaotic at times, it is important to understand that being kind goes a long way.
Taking Time to Celebrate
Often the time is not taken to step back and look at what we individually, or as an organization, have accomplished and appreciate how impactful something was.
