One tradition we have here at Connect Coworking (rain or shine!) is our Monthly Member Meeting. This awesome meeting is a round table in which we introduce our bada** selves, update our members on all the new happenings, typically have a special guest speaker, and host a ping pong tournament (as well as, our recently added, corn hole tournament)!
For our February Member Meeting Extravaganza, we had wine tasting (our Operations Manager, Danielle Schiess, is low-key a wine connoisseur), and a cookie swap (yum). Our guest speakers were Cassie Lundin from Arizona@Work and Erika Mitnik-White and Lore Contreras from Local First Arizona! Why Cassie? Well because Connect Coworking is collaborating with their awesome youth experience program where our members can work closely with the local youth seeking professional experience. Why Erika and Lore? Well because Local First Arizona is hosting their next Business Coalition Mixer here at Connect! We know, we know – all super cool.
We learned about four different wines, enjoyed a variety of delicious cookies, got updated on upcoming events (and birthdays), introduced new members, and continued the fun! Next month we’ll probably return back to pizza and beer (our usual Monthly Member Meeting go to)- we just wanted to get a lil’ fancy with February.
Competition gets intense (if you can’t already tell by the pictures above). Our February Ping Pong and Corn Hole champion is Cooper (Coop) Kowalski from InHouse! We can’t wait for the next member meeting that awaits us in March!
