activerain community: The Community of ActiveRain is Strong - 10/10/13 04:25 AM
I've had the pleasure of talking to many members this week.  My phone has been ringing off the hook and the best part is I don't know who or what is on the other end.  Every time I've talked to someone, whether they had an issue we were able to resolve or what not, the sincere praise and love for ActiveRain was undeniable.  
It's easy to see we have something special here, it's kind of hard to explain in words but I think some of our members did a good job of it below.
And...if I haven't told you lately....Thank … (51 comments)

With Thanksgiving fast approaching I've got family on the brain; my own and you, my lovely AR Family too!
Do you ever wonder how many hours per week you spend with your AR family?  As an employee I know I spend a ton of hours doing what I do but what about the rest of you?  I see you all on here morning, noon and night so it's almost like we spend our days together. 
I know your faces, usernames and emails by heart.  I know your titles, cities and experiences.  I've had the pleasure of digging deeper into many of … (153 comments)

activerain community: MeetUp Successes!!! - 09/16/11 09:23 AM
I am beyond elated, joyful, moved, and grateful for all of you that attended a MeetUp in your area.  The best part of the old RainCamps was getting to meet you face to face and embed that feeling.  When I get a call or email from one of you that I have personally met, it brings me back.  And that my friends is why the MeetUps are so very, very important.  Whether 4 or 40 people showed up I knew it would be a success!
Many of you thought more members would have come out; and you still expressed having … (80 comments)

activerain community: Planes, Trains & Automobiles...and RainCamp!!!! - 04/07/11 09:17 AM
We returned last night from our kick off RainCamp of 2011.  Literally took a train to a plane to an automobile to get home….and it was fantastic!  Except of course our little delay due to Mr. Obama flying in to Philly real quick. 
RainCamp is the best aspect of my job.  I was able to hug so many familiar faces and connect with a bunch of new ones.  I laughed, cried and left feeling amazing about this Community we work so hard each day to maintain.
The 2 day event was jam packed of exciting information.  A ton of new information was … (19 comments)
