A Powerhouse Evening

By Michelle Merritt, Vice President of Member Relations & Communications

You all know how I feel about traditional "networking." Let me tell you, last night's event was nothing like that at all!

Our board chairman, Pat Sullivan, hosted the first Chairman's Reception at The Hylant Group. This event, open to the public, was an opportunity to meet and mingle with decision makers and community leaders from all over Northeast Indiana.

What a great night! Every time I walked through the shoulder-to-shoulder crowd, I would overhear people talking to old friends and colleagues, making introductions to new friends and potential business partners, lots of laughter, and plans for seeing one another again.

I knew last night was a powerful evening for so many in the business community. An opportunity to mix and mingle in a great group of leaders like this is something everyone's already asking to do again. This is what relationship building is all about!

A big thank you to Pat Sullivan, the Hylant Group, and all of the business and community leaders who attended last night event! We appreciate you!
