VirtualOffiCenters/OffiCenters Monthly Newsletter 
Featuring Opportunities for Creative Collaboration 

Notes From Lori

We are just one month in to the New Year and we are already shaking things up!  Look at the great new masthead on the newsletter! My staff is pulling out all stops to make this a banner year with a full Center Stage Newsletter and This Week at OffiCenters redesign. We switched to Constant Contact from Mail Chimp in order to have more flexibility and options and we are very pleased with the results. We would appreciate your feedback. We have also added a new feature in the red side bar that recognizes our clients who renewed their agreements and are spending another year with us. We are so humbled by the trust and friendship of long-term client relationships. YOU are what makes us unique! 


This month we did our first test of live streaming our PowerLunch event using Google Hang Outs and are pleased to report:  It works GREAT! Our speaker was live at Park and delivered to all locations over lunch hour last Thursday.  When the first question came in from an off-site community member, I actually got goose bumps!  What a day for our team of innovators lead by my Sissistant (OC definition:  Sister plus Trusted Assistant and yes, it is a made up word!) Lea and Amanda, our PA! (More bragging to follow on this one!) I hope to see all of you at a networking event this month. Fall in Love With WIN (Women in Networking)  is this week and is one of our most well attended events of the year. Check out all the news and connections as we continue to work towards making some of our dreams come true. We are in the midst of designing mobile friendly websites for both of our brands in additiona to adding some new groups and networking twists. I promise not to disappoint. Our spaces are more awesome each and every day. And the MOST awesome in the Twin Cities! Our newest tag line: Life is short. Work somewhere awesome! Thanks for believing in us.
