Monthly Marketing Update
- October 2016

Thank you to our sponsors who joined us for our quarterly sponsor breakfast. We had great attendance and enjoyed networking with all of you. You can now view pictures from the breakfast on our Facebook page (Please make sure to tag yourself). Thank you so much for all you do to help connect the community!

We are starting production on our January 2017 Portland/ Vancouver guide and will be sending an email to all housing and home care to verify your grid information. Make sure to submit your changes for the upcoming guide! In addition, Meghan will be sending out ad approvals this week. The deadline to submit new artwork is November 1, 2016. Please contact us if you would like to reserve your space in the upcoming guide or update your information for the year.

The PeaceHealth Case Management Resource Fair is this week followed by the Providence St. Vincent Resource Fair later this month. Additionally, the Legacy Meridian Park Resource Fair has been scheduled with more 2017 events to come! All of our sponsors will be sent a direct link to register for CEU poster space. Make sure to check our education page for all of our upcoming resource fair events.

Nuggets of Knowledge


"A good leader takes a little more than his share of the blame, a little less than his share of the credit.” - Arnold H. Glasgow

Being a leader is easy when everything is going well. When something goes wrong a good leader takes responsibility for the problem. Great leaders learn from their own mistakes and the mistakes of others around them. Learning how to better manage the process or people is significant, but taking ownership of the mistake is even more important.
