August 2019 Meeting Recap

Thank you and congratulations!

This year's August meeting was a little different than usual, and we'd like to extend a huge thank you to Valerie McSorley of Avant Garde Events for hosting us. We were honored to be your first official guests and help you christen "The Hive."

Not only will The Hive be the home of Avant Garde Events, but it will serve as a space to host events, workshops, retreats, pop-ups, networking, and photoshoots. More details to come about Valerie's new endeavor at

In terms of this month's meeting, we had a smaller crowd than normal, but that lead to deeper discussions and some very productive networking.

Thank you to all who could make it. See you at our next "normal" meeting scheduled for September 4, at Laura's Center for the Arts in Hanover.

    It was a great meeting! More intimate than usual with smaller numbers in attendance, but still very strong on quality! I’m proud to be a member of this group! I’ll look forward to seeing everyone in September…perhaps by then, we will have pumpkin-flavored coffee. Just kidding!

    Matt, thanks for posting about today’s meeting, and your thoughtfulness by including my video! Valerie, a beautiful space you have! Congratulations! Paul Corrigan, thank you for the testimonial; I truly appreciate that!
