OffiCenters Monthly Newsletter 
Featuring Opportunities for Creative Collaboration 

Notes From Lori
The fall is screaming by and I've been thinking, "Where has this year gone?" I like to take extra time in November to really count my blessings.
I am so thankful for a great 2017. We have had so much fun, including last month's Secrets to Success Cover and Oktoberfest party. We had many of you ask us to repeat the panel discussion in the near future. Stay tuned as I plan to coordinate a VIP PowerLunch with the whole "Success" gang. The dust is flying at Union Plaza as we are officially underway with the remodel and update of our space. We are planning a NEW look and MORE coworking space featuring booths, a wine bar and a few new things that our members have never seen. What a great way to wind up the year. We should be completed by the holiday lunch to give the new space a proper welcome. BTW! Mark your calendars with your holiday lunch date as they are the most well attended events of the year. And for those who ask: Yes! Another traditional lasagna lollapalooza! It is our annual tradition and a MUST on your social calendar.

Starting this month, I have accepted an invitation by Dr. Verna Price to join the GIA ( Girls in Action) Board of Directors. I believe in their concept of elevating girls across Minnesota and the world by helping give them a leg up and to practice Dr. Verna's positive message. The timing is perfect to coincide with our December theme of giving back to our OneCommunity Partners. All of us at OffiCenters are proud to sponsor events that encourage participation and giving back not only to the OffiCenter community but our local and state charities, as well.  I am proud to see my vision come to fruition. 

Thanks to my awesome team, our fantastic members (over 1100 strong), our vendors and partners that work tirelessly on our behalf. Take time to thank those who make your work awesome experience each day. I am looking forward to a magical holiday season full of family, friends and great food & festivities. Reach out and plan a special event with family and friends, as the gift of time and making memories is priceless. I know I'll see you in the workspace this month! Be grateful for all that is good.

In the Spotlight
 What's in a Name?

Everything! It's your brand, it's your logo, it's a visual trigger that represents your company, it's how people emotionally connect with your business, it's your rich history, how your tradition lives on and your commitment to the future. And it's why we have decided to go back to our roots and merge the two divisions of our company under one name, OffiCenters. For us, one name meant creating one way for both full-time and virtual members and prospects to easily find us. Check out our new website at  OffiCenters.com and give us your feedback!
