VirtualOffiCenters/OffiCenters Monthly Newsletter 
Featuring Opportunities for Creative Collaboration 

Notes From Lori

It's August and National CoWorking Week! Let's start the celebration by bringing a friend to work! We have new free one day passes for any of our 5 CoWorking spaces! Bring a friend into our workspace this week and have a chance to win a $250 Visa gift card. What a great opportunity to CONNECT your friends and colleagues to our community. We have events almost every day this week and carrying on throughout the month. Friday is an extra educational opportunity with a Social Media Crash Course from Dave Meyer with BizzyWeb. Dave will also have information on a new product we are launching, VirtualOffiSites. It is exciting news! Be sure to check out the event calendar and This Week at OffiCenters to see all of the happenings this month. The summer is going fast. Enjoy the warm weather and keep cool in our workspaces. Because, of course, we only have cool businesses at OffiCenters and VirtualOffiCenters.

In the Spotlight
Celebrate How YOU Work Best!

The term "CoWorking" has been around since 1999 but it wasn't until August 9, 2005 when an online article used the term to  describe a new way of working and collaborating. And so, each year on the Friday closest to August 9, we celebrate National CoWorking Day. During the week of August 3-7 we invite you to "Bring A Friend to Work". Offer them a FREE 1 Day Pass to try CoWorking and in turn, you will be entered into a drawing for a $250 Visa gift card (1 entry per friend). Friday, August 7 is National CoWorking Day. Start with coffee, donuts and informal networking in our CoWorking spaces. Then, we have a FREE Social Media Crash Course that is open to all. Register Now! And don't forget, stop at the front desk to "See How We Roll". Every 7 rolled is a WINNER!
France OffiCenter
Top level of Parking Ramp has been resurfaced! WooHoo! 
Union Plaza OffiCenter
Due to construction, there are a limited number of 90 minute visitor parking spots available. If you plan on having a guest for longer than 90 minutes, OffiCenters has floating spots that you can use. See a team member for details and scheduling.

Olympic Place OffiCenter

The building will be transforming the front entrance area. This change will include a new canopy entrance as well as the installation of more visitor parking areas for building guests. Work is anticipated to start later this summer and continue into the fall. 

Minneapolis, Starring The North Loop!

Residents and businesses in the North Loop woke up to find parking meters covered by hoods, people walking with microphones, and most of 3rd Ave covered in semi-trucks hauling various equipment. Why? Woody Harrelson is filming his current movie, "Wilson". It's no secret Harrelson has been in town the past few weeks, with sightings of him and his film crew at Mall of America, Como Park, and other various sites throughout the Twin Cities. Harrelson was also spotted in Loring Park by Union Plaza's Zach Rosen (Madia Law). The North Loop is thriving like never before, and is most definitely worth the trip. Even to movie stars!

In Memory of Sergeant Carson Holmquist

Our deepest sympathies go out to Mickey Mikeworth and her family for the loss of Sgt. Carson Holmquist (nephew) in the Chattanooga, TN shooting July 16 that claimed the lives of four Marines and one Navy Officer. Service to one's country that ends so tragically is the highest form of patriotism. We will remember Sgt. Holmquist forever as a brave Marine and a fine man.
