We are excited for what 2023 has in store for our community!!!  We are making a strong effort to get back together for in-person events and networking, and are branching out to serve the Charlotte, Greenville and Raleigh areas.  We are hopeful that this year will bring many new faces to our lean community as we continue learning and growing together!
