We're all feeling pretty disconnected lately and this week the Chamber is giving you the opportunity to re-connect! Thursday, April 23 is Get Connected Day, a day of webinars on a range of topics. You can sign up for one, or get a pass for the whole day (you don't have to go to all 8, but you'll have access to them - and they're pretty great - if we do say so ourselves!) $10 for 1 session, $25 for access to ALL 8. Thank you to our Get Connected event sponsor, CONRIC PR & Marketing .

Q: How will I get into the sessions on Thursday?
A: You will receive an email from Linda Onorevole (linda@fortmyers.org) that has the links for the sessions you chose, or all 8 if you signed up for ALL ACCESS. 

Emails will be sent this week, so if you've already registered, you'll see it soon. Please check your spam and make sure Linda is listed as a safe sender (she's very trust-worthy, she was a girl scout and had perfect attendance in Sunday School - both true!)
Q: Anything else that I need to know?

A: We recommend that you set the coffee pot up ahead of time, get your snacks together, put on your dress comfy pants*, and get ready to learn!

*If you're doing session 1 at 7:00AM put on your workout gear (we've given you an hour afterwards to refresh).

On Wednesday, April 29 at noon , Christin Collins will lead a discussion about what the current situation has taught us about ourselves and well-being. She will also share lessons of self-care to help guide us as we move forward.

Christin is the System Director of Health and Wellness for Lee Health. She is also the 2012 recipient of the Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce Women in Business APEX Award.

There is no cost to participate, however we ask that you register to receive the link to participate.
We're going to be launching a new section of Resource.FortMyers.org , Quarantine Cuisine, which will showcase the recipes we've all been making while being home during this time.

Email us your recipes to be included!
