VirtualOffiCenters/OffiCenters Monthly Newsletter 
Featuring Opportunities for Creative Collaboration 

Notes From Lori
Another June rolls around and we're back in the month where it all started 36 years ago. Happy Birthday to OffiCenters! It seems the anniversary of my company is always a time when I look back with PRIDE. I'm proud of the teams I have worked with and all the clients and members that have passed through our doors. I'm proud of the way we have adapted through the business cycles and changed the focus of our products to meet the ever-changing needs of the businesses we serve. And yes, I am also proud of myself for leading our organization to deliver a Work Awesome experience to all of our members. I've never felt better about the workplace services we deliver to our almost 1,200 members. Join us today for a celebratory cupcake as our way of saying, "Cheers to YOU" for making our workspaces exciting, staff & members alike.  We couldn't be US without all of YOU! Let this be my lesson to all of you: Celebrate your accomplishments and milestones. Each and every one is monumental and are chapters to your business story. Share your successes with all of us and I wish that you too can feel pride in every cycle of your business. 

Starting this month, our official tag line will be Work Awesome and we are in the process of changing our business cards and printed materials to reflect our new message. Next month, I will have major news regarding an existing site and an updated new look. And, l ooking down the road, we may be adding new spaces, so stay tuned! Mark your calendar now for August 17 because you won't want to miss the event of the summer, an all OffiCenter/VirtualOffiCenter celebration at Minnetonka where we will feature adult libation, music, food truck catering and Salsa dancers,  OlĂ©! Everyone is invited so let's pray for great weather and have a BIG turnout. See you in the workspaces this month!

OffiCenters is celebrating 36 years of working awesome today. We had no idea in 1981 when Park OffiCenter opened, in the same space that we still occupy today, that we would turn into the premier Twin Cities executive suite workspace with 5 locations and over 1,000 members. Over the years, we have provided support to countless businesses and are extremely proud to have been part of their growth and the growth of our local economy. We've seen the workplace change and transform and OffiCenters has changed and transformed with the times. But, one thing that is still true today, just like in 1981, we offer our members the tools they need to thrive and survive in an ever-changing marketplace with flexible plans, a professional and highly supportive staff and a Work Awesome  experience. So really, we just want the next 36 years to be as exciting and successful as the past 36 years have been! Happy Birthday to US! There is no better way to celebrate than with YOU  . . . and cupcakes!  
Just Did It! Again and Again and Again!!
