Our Network Connect AM Brewing Up Business on Thursday morning was the boost I needed to get me through this week. If you have not joined us for one of our Network Connects I hope you will, they really are unique and fun and bring that connection and socializing we are all craving right now.
We are looking at some really exciting new online event platforms to better your experience, if you have used one you really liked please let me know. There are so many options out there and we want to choose the best for our programming.
Speaking of programming, if it is a Thursday then we are doing a program! Coming up this Thursday we have an exciting Member Connect where we will be talking about government affairs and lobbying with Schmidt Government Solutions, a certified LGBT business enterprise lobbying firm; and our corporate member Amazon, who works with governments in many ways and stages of their business. I am also looking forward to hearing from Amazon about the amazing community investments they have announced in Nashville recently. Join us on Thursday, details below.
Speaking of the legislation, the Tennessee General Assembly is in session and unfortunately taking up anti-LGBT legislation. We should expect to see anti-LGBT bills moving every week now until they adjourn in late May. We need you to stay up to date on what is happening and take action when you can. There is an Action Alert and further information in the Legislative Report below.
I am sad to not have a Super Bowl party this weekend, the first time in years. I love getting together with lots of friends and eating junk food and watching the commercials and halftime show, the game can be good too. We will still watch but not gather as we are doing our part to not spread the Coronavirus. Officials are worried that Super Bowl parties will be super-spreader events and cause the case to further climb. Do your part and only watch with people in your bubble.
Stay safe and have fun. Thanks for being a member.
