Monthly Marketing Update
- April 2018

I use this newsletter to share upcoming events, deadlines, news and meeting information. Recently, we have had a few people tell us they did not know about upcoming case manager events, or release parties, or sponsor events. Upon investigation, I found that they received, but do not read/open this newsletter. This made me want to stress to everyone that - THIS NEWSLETTER IS THE BEST WAY TO FIND OUT WHAT IS HAPPENING.

I always include upcoming CEU events and sponsor information here first. It may be available in other places online, but this is the most consistent way I can communicate what is in the pipeline. If ever you feel we neglected to share an important event, our staff always wants to know, but I promise we are trying to keep you informed of upcoming information. The second best way to find out "breaking news" is our sponsor breakfast and other quarterly sponsor events that we coordinate with our advertisers.

Please help spread the word that this newsletter is worth reading and has helpful information. Whew and sorry- (now I will step down from the soapbox)!

Nuggets of Knowledge

"Sometimes when you're in a dark place you think you've been buried, but you've actually been planted." – Christine Caine

It can be hard to see the silver lining when it is very, very cloudy. You don’t see the strength you can provide others because you don’t even know you have enough for yourself. But when we stop thinking, planning, and fighting, and just take a minute to "be present", maybe a new normal can be found.
