January Events

Posted By: Trish Cunningham on January 7, 2020

HAPPY 2020! And a reminder to write the full year 2020 on all legal documents! Additionally, update your copyright on your websites to 2020. You’re welcome!

As we drive pedal to the metal in this new year 2020, I’d like to take a moment to remind you that if you have any questions about how to manage some pieces of internal communications, it’s always a great idea to incorporate safety tips and best practices highlighted by the National Safety Council. There are also fantastic ideas for the fun days of each month that have been classically defined by who knows who! *grin* I mean seriously, January offers National Fresh Squeezed Juice Week from January 17 – 23. If your company supports good health, like most do, perhaps a juice bar that week is in order! Make a date with a colleague for that one!

You can find the NSC information for the month and year here:

Finally, here it is! The list of events to consider what to do, where to go, who to see … be sure to let us know where you’ll be and we’ll see you there! And it all starts TOMORROW so take a peek this evening!
