Joanie speaking in front of a captivated audience

The great event last night at VIATEC allowed us to share and celebrate all the great things happening with our members.

We went around the room and let many of the members share their stories and projects. They all spent time collaborating on new ideas, especially with charities like Hero Work!

Shout out to the awesome band, Thirty Street , who rocked the house.

Congratulations to Patrick Arnold, who signed up as a new member! Welcome!
