April Events

Posted By: Debbie Milks on March 31, 2020

Here we are. Working and waiting, but not waiting still.

We’ve seen so many amazing shares on social media from offers of free service to how to use ZOOM to canine and feline interruptus during virtual meetings!

During crisis things happen that we learn from and sometimes the lessons are what to do and sometimes what not to do. Stress and anxiety can run amok, if we let it. For anyone who needs it, please do contact a professional because mental health is vital to overall well-being.

April offers challenges and opportunity. Please keep in touch with your colleagues and friends and let us know if you need our help!

Take a look at the opportunity to participate in online association events this month and hop on to engage with like-minded professionals and learn from experts who will share on a variety of topics with a main theme. It’s still early so keep checking on the events pages for any associations that have not yet posted any potential online options.

For your amusement…

An FM radio rock station our CEO, John Sweney, was with in the mid-1970’s asked their “old guard” to record new Public Service Announcements for the coronavirus situation. Here is what they now have in the streaming broadcast PSA rotation.
