Hello Growth Professionals,

It has been one year since our offices were closed, and I am encouraged by the silver linings around us, feeling optimistic about a strong 2021, regardless of what work will look like! In reflection, I am thankful to this professional community. I had the pleasure to meet members of this community as you came together to share, collaborate, and create impact.
 
At MassTLC, we have big plans to bring new programming that you and your team will benefit from. Soon, we will send you information regarding leadership development, DEI initiatives, community programs, and executive forums. We are also offering value to your organization by delivering thought leadership and growth-focused content from our members. There is so much to look forward to! In the coming weeks, we will announce our plans for this year’s Tech Top 50.
 
As we consider the amazing women around us for International Women's Day and Women's History Month, check out our stories on the strong women leaders who are on the MassTLC Board of Trustees on Twitter.
 
As always, we are grateful to our sponsor's Cramer, Imarc, Rocket.

 
Warm Regards and Stay Well.
