Hot Times in the City :: Co-Op Web - June 09 News

Be Great

I have been spending some additional times in my volunteer gigs lately, as I truly believe that one way to get out of our own way is to put others first. "Be Great" is the inspirational line being used by the Boys and Girls Club right now and it is something for all of us to keep in mind in our daily lives. Below you will witness our Website Makeover, the Flash intro, focusing on the Youth of the Year (congratulations TJ!), that we donated to the B & G Club of Tucson. We really like the way it came out, and hope that you do, too.

I would be remiss if I didn't also mention my recent experiences as a brand-new CASA. I spent the morning recently observing some very courageous people and it was pretty amazing. I went through about a half a box of kleenex, but was totally inspired by the parents I saw overcoming some pretty dire circumstances and managing to for the most part, to rise above, pull themselves up by their bootstraps and still have hope that they will and are able to fulfill their dreams and make them finally come true.

This month, I rose above in my own little way and it felt pretty good.
I am now officially certified as a Master Project Manager (MPM) and Project Manager E-Business (PME). I am truly excited about this and it only took me 15 years to complete this achievementt. Haha... sad, but true.

Lastly, I would like to congratulate all of our customers who are currently taking advantage of the potential of Twitter, please feel free to contact us anytime you are ready to move to the next level and make it work even better for your e-business.

I am suffering from my usual case of "idea-rhea", so please stayed tuned for some very exciting things to come. Just a warning...

If you have any questions and topics that you would like for me to address, please feel free to email us at .

Boys and Girls Club of Tucson:

After reading Mission Statement of the Boys and Girls Club, you can understand why we have chosen them to be one of our sponsored non-profits for the past year.

We do not handle all of their e-business efforts, however we do help with a few items that we are especially proud of and mostly thankful to be associated with this amazing organization.

Here are the items that we help in:
1. Website - any Flash and video additions

2. Email Marketing - to the general list and the Board

3. Creation of an Email Opt-in sign up capability

4. I became a member of the Associate Board, Marketing Committee, so I can make suggestions on the fly.

We have many more things in the works, so please visit the Boys and Girls Club of Tucson and witness the results of this Website Makeover
