October 2013 President’s Corner

Hello Net Impact Boston Members,

A few weeks ago, the NIB Leadership Team met for our annual retreat to plan for the upcoming year. After an afternoon of hard work mapping out strategies and tactics, we kicked back at a local restaurant for some down time. We were each having our own conversations with the one or two people sitting next to us when Tom Reid got our attention. He requested we go around the table and say why we are each involved in Net Impact and the impact the organization has had on us.

As we went around the circle, common themes continually emerged about our collective experiences: being part of a community of like-minded people, opportunities for personal and professional development, the desire to make a meaningful impact and do good work. The list goes on. As each person spoke, I became more and more energized and inspired about this community we have been building in Boston, and it is only going to continue to grow stronger.

The team already has some great events and activities planned for this coming year, but we want to hear from you about your experiences with Net Impact and what you hope to gain from Net Impact Boston this year. Why did you get involved in Net Impact? Tell us on twitter, our Facebook page or the facebook group, or email us at marketing@netimpactboston.org. We’d love to hear from you!
