The Center Arrives!
The Center "Arrived" a long time ago and is thriving beyond our wildest dreams, thanks to CEO Mike Thompson and his stellar team. Their Monthly Social (this Wednesday at Arrive Hotel from 5:30 to 7 p.m.) has become the most-friendly, casual, no-cost meet & mingle opportunity in the desert. The host locations often have comped lite bites, there is no cover, and you are not required to purchase beverages. Some of the venues offer Happy Hour prices, while others offer drinks at their usual prices, but you're in control of what you order and want you spend. The events are free and fabulous.
Take it from me (Nicholas Snow)… Believe it or not, I experience social anxiety, and attending this event each month has allowed me to meet more and more people in a safe, friendly environment, which has allowed me to build a bridge to the community and expand my personal and professional circles. A key part of their core mission is building "vibrant community" and they live this everyday. Isn't it time to "Arrive" in your community? See you there!
