Being connected can be one of the most beneficial assets for each of us. And when you consider how we are connected here through The Group and what a tremendous bank of knowledge and resources we have collectively, the idea of Connections means even more.

When I see the image above and the hand touching the surface of the water and in doing so creating a ripple effect, this is symbolic of one person here in The Group, reaching out and starting a conversation. For instance, by sending a single email through one of our eLists – we'll use GroupEs as an example. This one email, almost instantly, is delivered to over 700 mailboxes! This is when the conversation with connections begins and the knowledge and experience are shared.

Sometimes Connections help you decide what to do. And sometimes it may also help you decide what not to do. And, of course, an inventive new idea or concept can emerge. Connections often spark ideas that can result in fundamental change.

I often think about how The Group can get you connected more. How can we bring more of you together, in any way possible? How can we create paths so you can be introduced to peer Centers, what they do, how they do it, and of course who does it best?

Obviously, when I think of making Connections this time of year, it is impossible to not think about The Fall Event 2023. Spending four days with peers that are ready to share, challenge you, and collaborate is a unique opportunity that can make all the difference.

I hope you have the opportunity of experiencing The Fall Event 2023 and have blocked out the dates on your schedule. Our hotel is nearing our limits so if you still need to make Connections, make your hotel reservations today. Click here for hotel reservations NOW.

Mark your calendar for September 25-28 - in Cincinnati... You'll be busy!


Sharing is at the heart of The Group and your ideas are very important. If you have any trouble logging into The Group WebSystem, please let me know. Are you and your staff all subscribed to our eLists such as GroupEs, Retail-Grower, Retail-Landscape, Owners-Only, and a number of others? Need help subscribing?

Thanks for sharing!
