From the desk of the Executive Director:
This May marked 1-full year since I traded in my Mad Men_™_ world of advertising career to run a non-profit full-time. As I reflect on the past year, I'd like to take a moment to thank each of you for your support and encouragement along the way! I can't believe how fast the time has flown and how much we've grown together.
Together we transitioned from Zoom to in-person networking, introduced a new Board Chair plus 2 new board members, established a new strategic framework, hired employee #2, ran a Forrest Gump themed 5K, launched a cybersecurity certificate program, hosted several lunch & learn events, dressed up like our favorite 90's icons (Party on Wayne), onboarded many new members, piloted a Mobile Gaming Accelerator for students, organized Beaufort's very first Startup Weekend and so much more!
And we're not stopping anytime soon. Ready to hit play on year 2? Check out the list of upcoming events below. Be sure to save the date for our special Member Appreciation Night on Thursday, June 16th! You won't want to miss it!
