Hot Tip For Managing Your Calendar
Retirement Connection Event Calendar

Having a hard time managing all of the events and networking opportunities you attend?  Well, there may be an easier way to populate and update your calendar using the resources already posted on Retirement Connection's website - here's how:

  1. Go to the Networking Page 
  2. Click on the button for the Events Calendar at the top of that page.
  3. Once the calendar opens, on the bottom right, click the button for "Google Calendar".
  4. This will add this calendar and all supporting info to your calendar page if you use Google Calendar. 
  5. You can then also sync Google Calendar with Outlook, smart phones and other applications.

What's so great about this? As meeting locations or topics change- your calendar is automatically updated as we receive the updated details. We also provide a web link to more information for your calendar. The networking calendar remains independent from your personal entries for quick viewing.
(you will need a FREE google email account to do this)


We are happy to assist you in setting this up - call Amy

December Marketing Update - Salem
(Serving Marion, Polk & Yamhill Counties)

We are continuing to collect the Early Bird renewals for Salem. Although you have more time than normal, now that we are an annual publication remember to renew by the end of the year to save 10% these will be sent to our existing sponsors this week by email. You can still break it into payments, you pay in 2014/2015 and ad copy is not due until next August.


As I reflect on the past year I am reminded of all the unsung and often behind the scenes contributions of Meghan, Jill, Lyman and Katie as we have grown the guides and built stronger relationships with the hospitals and area agencies on aging. None of this would have been possible without their teamwork and focus on our goals. Happy Holidays to you, your staff and your families from all of us at Retirement Connection.


But enough about us, here's the Networking Info:

In this newsletter, you will find information about: networking, CEU training, Event Sponsorship, Web Advertising, and more.

Nuggets of Knowledge  

"Your persistence is your measure of your faith in yourself"

- Brian Tracey


I have failed often when starting most of my endeavors, but I choose to push through. I have had to adjust course, adapt my approach, or overcome an obstacle. I was willing to fail at the method, but not willing to fail at the goal. Adapt, adjust or overcome, but still persist; if you don't have faith in yourself to accomplish the goal- why should others have faith in you?

 - Amy
