Happenings at the Happy Hour


Wow — you guys sure know how to network!

More than 60 Leaders joined our own Marty Kearns and Zach Brooks at a happy hour at Blackfinn Charlotte on Monday to celebrate the Southern Obesity Summit.

Leaders mingled during the fun event and munched on healthy treats such as salad bites, turkey wraps and flatbread with hummus. also bought Leaders their first round of drinks.

The happy hour was a great way to put so many faces to the names we often see online during our campaigns and get to meet in the Inside Track. It also offered an opportunity for Leaders to get to know each other in person.

Leaders spotted at the happy hour included Dean Brodhag, Amy Stockton, Langston Moore, Shivani Mehta, Shea Cox, Christina Trapolino, Tiffni Menendez, Jammi Roscoe, Heather Atteberry, Trimease Carter, Diana Manee, Lynn Goldberg, Jenna Simons, Katie Spears, TL Lansdell, Kathryn Taylor, Kevin Dedner, Betsy Vetter, Nell Lennon, Jeanne Dairaghi, Bronwyn Lucas, Diane Beth and Shawna Kelsch. also welcomed several new Leaders at the happy hour.

In addition, sponsored a booth at the summit, which was held in Charlotte, N.C., from Sunday to Tuesday. Leaders who stopped by the booth took home our official backpacks and the last of our coveted sweatbands — Zach reports that his suitcase was 10 pounds lighter on the trip home because we gave out so much swag!

The team plans to attend future conferences, where we hopefully will get to meet more Leaders in person. And stay tuned to the Inside Track… we might just host another happy hour or two.
