VirtualOffiCenters/OffiCenters Monthly Newsletter 
Featuring Opportunities for Creative Collaboration 

Notes From Lori
It's November and we have so much to be thankful for. Just look at the events this month. All of us agree that CRAZY is the only way to describe what is happening in our workspaces. Just this week, we hit an all time high in new VirtualOffiCenters members, 14 in one week! And check out the new members this month. We had to expand the newsletter just to pack in all of the action. We have an event to end all events on 11/11! Announcing the addition of 14 new offices at France OffiCenter and CONNECTING our two workspaces! Wait until you see the coworking space update that will be complete by year end. Celebrate with us as we have so many fun announcements! The party will also launch OneCommunity, our charitable giving program. This month we are also celebrating the addition of Scott Ravenscroft joining our team as COO. Plus, we have a HUGE announcement pending! You are not going to believe what we have looming on the horizon! Think West! Think Huge! You must join us for the unveiling on November 11th from 4 to 6 pm in the France OffiCenter Virtual Annex. Bring your crazy and give THANKS!

Meet Scott Ravenscroft

Have you seen this guy in our workspaces? Scott came to help us with new projects and we made him an offer he couldn't refuse. Effective November 1, Scott joins the OC/VOC staff as COO and will be in charge of all center operations. Scott grew up in Northwest Iowa and graduated from the University of Iowa. Go Hawks! He came to us with a sales and communications background and worked in our industry for almost 8 years overseeing over 20 office business centers in the Midwest. We are excited to have him on our team. Scott and his wife Joey live in Burnsville with their 11 year old twins, Piper and Simon. On weekends, when he isn't hunting, you can find him on the rink as a hockey dad! Connect with Scott Ravenscroft on LinkedIn to see his full resume and background.
