Monday Morning News Header

Good Morning CRV Members!

So its Wednesday, not Monday but I'm going to plead 2020!!  

Happy September to all of you!  Whether that means back to school (in what ever form that takes this year) or just the advent of cool nights and pleasant days, let's hope turning to a new month turns to a new chapter for all of us.  Labor Day approaches and as we get ready for our long weekend, let's keep our colleagues in the event industry on the top of our minds.  We all must take care of each other as we progress through this crisis.

We've  got some great webinars and articles for you this week.  And, as always, if you see something you would like to share with everyone, please send it to and we'll include it in next week's email. 


Cindy Panioto, President,
and your Board of Directors

Attend Trivia Night!  
We're so excited Party People, a CRV member, is hosting a Trivia night for us.  There will be prizes for the top four of the night and lots of fun and excitement.  You'll also get to experience Trivia Night and see if its something you'd like to do with your groups! We've scheduled it for the end of the day but before dinner so you can grab a beverage, zoom and and have some fun.  The information is below, join us and have some fun!!!

Are you looking to broaden your leadership training and skills?
CT River Valley Chapter is looking for members to serve on the Board of Directors and committee leads.  We have opportunities for volunteers in the areas of membership, marketing and communications, special events and education events.  Whether you've got a half an hour a month or a few hours, we've got a spot for you to fill!   One way to really make your resume shine is to volunteer, so if you've got an hour or more, we'd love to bring you on board!  Give me a call or email at Cindy Panioto, or 860-258-0213.

We'll be reaching out in the next couple weeks to check in on all of you see if there's anything we can do to help you move forward.  Whether you're looking for training or job opportunites, we want to know how the Chapter can help. Both Adrienne Johnson, our President-Elect and I will be calling all of you, so have your questions and needs ready!
