We can’t believe another year is almost gone. Is it just us or did 2016 FLY by? Either way, it was a remarkable year, and one we’d like to reflect on.
In fact, here are some of our favorite moments and memories from 2016:
1. Attending ASAE Annual in Salt Lake City
ASAE Annual is, unsurprisingly, one of our favorite events of the year. And this year, since it was held in Salt Lake City, we had mountains and mountains of fun. (Get it?!)
But in all seriousness, we really did have a blast. We were able to meet with customers and friends (both old and new), and that always ensures a good time.
2. Hosting our 4th Annual Small-Staff Shindig at ASAE Annual
Speaking of ASAE Annual, every year, we host a Small-Staff Shindig for association professionals, AMCs, and industry leaders. And this year’s party did NOT disappoint. In fact, we’re already looking forward to next year’s Shindig in Toronto!
3. Volunteering with the For a Day Foundation
Earlier this year, we were able to volunteer at the For a Day Foundation’s 4th Annual Evening Affair. The event featured carnival games, auction items, great food, and more. Best of all, proceeds from the event went to children at the Ronald McDonald House!
4. Being named one of Atlanta’s ‘Best Places to Work’
If you talk to any MemberClicks employee, you’ll pick up on the fact that they really like working here. But what’s really cool is when someone else - like the Atlanta Journal Constitution - recognizes that! This year, were were named the 8th Best Place to Work in Atlanta, and boy, if that isn’t cool!
5. Dressing up (and goofing off) on Halloween
Halloween really is one of our favorite holidays. We dress up, carve pumpkins, and eat endless amounts of candy. But the costumes this year were probably some of the best - and some we’ll be laughing about for quite some time.
6. Hosting a toy drive for ELI Project
Is there anything better than seeing children smile? We don’t think so, which is why we LOVED hosting a toy drive for ELI Project, a nonprofit that provides love and comfort to families with special needs. We collected toys and dropped them off at ELI Project’s annual movie night/visits with Santa. We don’t know who enjoyed it more - us or the kids!
Put simply, 2016 was amazing, and a lot of that can be contributed to you - our readers, customers, and friends. Thank you for such an amazing year. We can’t wait to see what 2017 holds!
