Prior to joining aimWest, I attended a couple of events and was impressed with the informational value and the types of people attending. When I joined aimWest in 2009, I was excited to become a part of a local organization providing educational and networking opportunities to forward-thinking marketing & technology professionals.
I love the diversity of our membership: corporate managers and executives, small business owners, marketing professionals, designers, writers, educators, recruiters, IT people, and many others are represented. Learning events aren’t highly technical, but you can get technical information by talking to the right people. I still find networking opportunities engaging and worthwhile. The membership is really in-touch with innovation and with the local business community.
As we enter our current season, these aspects of aimWest haven’t changed. But aimWest has grown, and the caliber of our events continues to improve. We have some exciting new goals for the year, and a unique opportunity to showcase the tremendous technology growth happening in West Michigan!
I look forward to meeting each of you at our events over the coming year. Note that you can already sign up for the next 2-3 events and see the coming season’s speakers, topics and events.
On behalf of the aimWest Board of Directors, we welcome your comments and suggestions for improving the organization. I encourage you to join our e-mail list, mark your calendar, and come chat with us at any of this year’s great events! It’s going to be a fantastic year.
Thanks for your support!
