OffiCenters Monthly Newsletter 
Featuring Opportunities for Creative Collaboration 

Notes From Lori
Happy 2019! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season. All of us at OffiCenters loved seeing so many of you  at our Holiday Luncheons.
We served over 500 members at our seven locations, more than ever before. I would like to announce that Bud Sandberg is my newly appointed MAYOR of OffiCenters as he is the only person besides my team to attend all seven lunches. We are surely FaLaLaLasagned out! Please remind Bud of this special honor when you see him in the workspaces.

We are anxiously awaiting the permit so that we can begin the work at Edina OffiCenter. Our plans include a newly renovated open lobby and cafĂ© service bar in the main suite. The Virtual Annex will have the ability to seat 60 people with an open coffee and wine bar, booth seating and lots of options for collaboration and community.  Meeting rooms will feature our newest white table looks with updated color schemes. I am ordering furniture like crazy so we are ready to roll, as soon as the City authorizes and issues our permits. We are also beginning Phase one of our Park OffiCenter remodel that will concentrate on the North side of the building. There will be a new look in the training room, new micro-offices, a podcast room and a brand-new kitchen/copy area. Phase two will be completed later in the year.

My word for 2019 is CONSISTENCY. Now that we have seven locations, it is my year to focus on providing the same Work Awesome experience in all of our spaces by honing our processes, training, development and tools. It is a big challenge but I know we are up for it. I would love to know your theme or word for 2019. I'm not big on resolutions, but love to choose a focus word for each year. It's so much easier than breaking a resolution.

Now go out and conquer the world! 2019 is our year for greatness. We believe that our workspace community is encouraging and inspiring us to move forward together. I know I will see you in the workspaces very soon. Have a healthy and prosperous New Year!

2018 OffiCenter Holiday Luncheons Recap

Thanks to the over 500 members we served Fa-la-la-la-lasagna to in our seven locations. It's our pleasure to serve you our traditional Italian lunch and your business throughout the year. You made the season very merry!

Construction season is starting early at OffiCenters! We are almost ready to start swinging hammers on not one, but two projects. Our NEW Edina location will undergo a complete renovation and include a 60 seat coworking space and all of the furnishings our members have come to enjoy at our other six locations. Park OffiCenter will see two phases of construction that will include the addition of our first Podcast room and updates to many of our common areas. Neither project will interrupt business and shouldn't take longer than 8 weeks to complete. Thank you in advance for your patience as we create more Work Awesome spaces for all of you!
