HYPE Leaders Meet the State's Leader

Feb 22, 2013

Last week members of our leadership team attended the MetroHartford Alliance's Annual Celebration. I'll always remember being nervous about attending last year's event; But this being the "Year of Engagement" for HYPE, I was committed to doing my part, and whoa, I am so glad I did! In a room of Greater Hartford business leaders, it was awesome to see many HYPEsters in attendance. This event was a great opportunity to network and also raise awareness of HYPE's achievements with many key Alliance members and regional stakeholders.

And while there were many highlights that night, (including hearing significant props for HYPE), the one that stands out for me is joining members of our leadership team in meeting Governor Dannel Malloy. It was a cool and surreal moment. Thinking back to it brings a great deal of pride for me both in our leadership team and HYPE. On one hand, you had the region's future leaders, side-by-side with the state's current leader. And on the other, validation of HYPE and the road ahead for our organization.

Remember, being a HYPE member not only provides you with professional development, community involvement and networking opportunities, but it also enables you to attend MetroHartford Alliance events at an affordable rate. With approximately 600 member businesses investing in the Alliance, I encourage you take advantage of the opportunity. Hey, you never know who you'll meet!

Until later,
