But Strother, how can I find Network Under 40 on social media?
On a more personal note, I wanted to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of you who came out last night to network and connect with others. In the wake of the tragedy in Orlando, I think it is important to remember that our humanity and connection to one another truly is one of the most amazing forces for good in our world both for us as individuals and for us as a collective. For those of us that have been emotionally impacted by the shooting in Orlando it’s inspiring to see the power of authentic connection in action. Thank you again.
We’re still locking down our venue for next month but be sure to save the date for our next event on July 21st! As always, if you ever have any questions, feedback, or just want to chat some more – feel free to reach out!
