December marks the end of the calendar year, and a time to pause and reflect on the months that have passed. Our team and community have so much to be proud of.

Leena has shepherded the creation of new member benefits, like the ASK-NCN LIVE series, which has seen over sixty members participate in four videochats, so far. The knowledge, perspective, and funny stories that are shared in these sessions aren’t to be missed!
This is our final week of taking a trip down memory lane to our 2017 gathering, Sharing Innovation, as a way to get psyched for 2018’s event in October.

We close with our final theme:
