Let's have some fun with this!!

If you can....  WEAR a Super BRIGHT colored Shirt.  Add some COLOR to your LIFE....and to our screens! 

 

March 18 & 19

This will historically always be our very first ever ONLINE NETWORK'ing event.  Our world went into lockdown for the Corona Virus the week before our normal 19 Network'ing events were to be hosted around the country. Charlene immediately cancelled the in-person events and scheduled these online events instead. 

We focused on the two educational sheets that she sent to the Network'ing hosts to talk about.  By the very next week she had booked a Industry Guest to talk about a topic. Within a month the program has been shimmed and slimmed to the "Ladies Offroad e-Workshops" that would happen Weekly on a Wednesday. The programs are now solely focused around education allowing the Network'ing and Social events to slide to other nights without the education as the hub.
