Mid-Willamette Valley
Monthly Marketing Update- June 2022

The past 45 days have been the most dramatic and busy of my entire life, as we learned my husband’s cancer had spread significantly. While managing my emotions surrounding our future, I am taking on some of his work tasks, because he is also my business partner. The Retirement Connection team continues to amaze me, and hopefully, we have not dropped any of the plates we are currently spinning. In the past month alone, we have hosted a Kentucky Derby Sponsor Appreciation party, Tacoma Health Care Providers after-hours event, Puget Sound Release Party, Southern Oregon Release Party, and a Happy Hour in Roseburg, and I traveled to Washington DC to advocate for Alzheimer’s care and research. Our team continues to shift roles to best serve you and the community. I may not be as visible at network meetings, but I assure you I am very much engaged.

Erin, Barret, Meghan, Jill, Kyle, Elizabeth, Steve, Lyman, and I (visit our "about us" page if you need a face to go with the name) are adjusting roles to make sure we remain responsive to your needs and continue to be the most comprehensive resource available in our community. As we grow and adjust, we have hired a new team member, Anthony Statham. He joins us as a content writer to increase our SEO for both and

Our Senior Service Network meeting for Willamette Valley Continues to grow and we are loving the new venue at Broadway commons. Meeting details are below, but please join us on the 4th Wednesday at 9am each month. Also, we are starting ad collections for the Mid Willamette Valley guide and the deadline will be in August. This may seem early to plan, but it does take us quite a while to check 2500 listings, 20+ pages of grid listings, and confirm 100+ sponsor details. We appreciate any help we can get in spreading the word about the deadline, and quick replies to our emails.  I hope we are included in your 2023 budget, yet billing is not due until fall and next year. Right now you are simply confirming your ad.

Network Meeting

Please visit our networking page for more details.

We include a robust list of events and networking opportunities on, including landing pages for recurring network meetings. To receive a complimentary page in the networking section, a meeting must represent the following:

  • Be specific to the senior industry
  • Be open to anyone from the senior industry to attend, and not a close network
  • Have a Regular attendance of 25+
  • Typically held in person rather than on-line

We know there are many other valuable meetings to attend, and we encourage you to do so. We hold to these standards, in an effort to highlight larger networking opportunities, rather than just list every possible meeting in the community. If you are not seeing specific details for a meeting, it may be because the meeting does not currently meet these parameters, but may still be meeting. We will remain in contact with the organizers and hopefully list again in the future

"Don't prioritize what's on your schedule, schedule your priorities.” - Stephen Covey

Time management is a myth; we don’t actually manage time and we all have the same hours in the day. I can, however, adjust my priorities to focus on what matters most. The gift of knowing you have limited time with someone or something is learning how you wish to spend that time.
