Communication & Social Media
We continue to see great engagement on our social media pages, and our Facebook numbers continue to look better and better! Our most popular feature by far is the Member Monday spotlight, where we highlight one NextExec each Monday. It’s a fantastic visibility opportunity for our members, and something we encourage everyone to take advantage of! If you are interested in being one of our featured NextExecs, just reach out to Anna or Peter and they will get all the details from you.

Talk about Next Execs! We can't grow and offer more networking, community involvement or professional development opportunities unless we all keep discussing it! Anthony and Brendan will be calling folks who have expressed interest to join us at the next meeting and future events. Next month, we will be looking for additional volunteers to make more calls.
