Featuring Opportunities for Creative Collaboration 

Notes From Lori
Happy May! 
The theme for the month is PRIDE! Looking over the first part of this year I have such a sense of pride in the performance of my team, pride in the community we work in and pride that our Work Awesome message is alive and well in all of our spaces daily. Thanks to those of you who donated to the Head and Neck Cancer Alliance on April 15. We are so proud to have written a check for $2200 to help with screening, testing and awareness. Also, proud of our evening with the New Business Minnesota group, as we sponsored the Small Business Advisory Committee networking where we hosted nearly 100 people at International Plaza. And can I say that I was proud of myself for The (Real) Power 50 awards evening just last night?  I never dreamed I would make the list! Thanks to my staff members and clients who attended and made the evening special. Our pride continues this month as we are Bronze Sponsors of the Girls In Action Annual "I AM" Luncheon on May 7 and Silver Sponsors for the 4th Annual TeamWomenMN Conference on May 8. There is still time to register for both of these events. On May 12 we will be in booth #3 at the New Business Minnesota Small Resource Expo! It keeps going on and on! Check out our calendar of events on the NEW VirtualOffiCenters mobile-friendly website! It launched today and is one of our biggest PROUD moments of the year. Thanks to Lea, Amanda and the BizzyWeb team for pulling it all together. And, there's no stopping now because in June we will be launching the new OffiCenter and CONNECT B2B sites. Just a few more things to add to our 2015 Pride List!

What's Awesome?

The NEW VirtualOffiCenters website is awesome! We are excited to be launching a New Mobile-Friendly website TODAY! It's easier than ever to find and register for events, login to CONNECT B2B Directory to contact other members or book a conference room. And look for more new features to be added in the upcoming months. We hope you love our new website as much as we do. Next up, big changes to OffiCenters.com in June!
For Your Support!

Thanks to your generous donations on Wednesday, April 15, Donut-ation Day, we were able to write a check to the Head and Neck Cancer Alliance for over $2200. The mission of this organization involves: providing support to head and neck cancer patients, supporting ongoing research in head and neck oncology, educating in the disease process, treatment and prevention of head and neck cancer.  Together we are stronger.
