Grateful For Every Active Rain Member Attending Zoom Meetings



My friend and associate Jeff Dowler, CRS   asked me to write what I  was grateful for in 2020. One of the most important things I am grateful for is my Tuesday Zoom meeting with my Active Rain Members. It started out as a social event during the COVID19 Pandemic. We had such a wonderful get-together that we decided to invite more Active Rain members 


How could we encourage other members to participate that was a question we asked each other? We came up with what we felt was a great solution. Let's do a challenge and offer points if you attend a meeting and write a post. Now we needed more than just a meeting let's invite speakers as we have a wealth of knowledge within Active Rain. 


So it began we had wonderful speakers Marte Cliff  the copi writer joined us and spoke she was marvelous and many members attended we noticed our numbers were growing. 


Recently we had Robert Siciliano  who discussed  cyber-security he was excellent I think everyone who attended learned something from him. I know I did. he also teaches a course on cyber security. It maybe something that some of us were interested in taking after listening to him speak he was so interesting you just wanted to know more.


Last week we had Elyse Berman, PA who talked about pet-friendly communities . She explained what you should be careful of and what questions to ask buyers . We also had  Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD  who talked about multi-gen homes .Every week there is something new you can learn.


Let's not forget Ben Kinney  comes by to keep us up to date with everything that is going on and answers all our questions. Something many of us are so grateful for and has seen a tremendous change in the way Active Rain is performing. He comes by once a month and joins us. Thank you so much Ben.


 I am so grateful for these Tuesday Zoom meetings and each and every member that attends. They have been a lifeline for me in a time of great distress and unrest. My state was in lockdown at the time when we started. Now the world is brighter but my calendar has a fixed date for Tuesday at 2 PM EST AR Zoom. This will not change for me unless we decide we are no longer participating.


What amazing friendships I have made here in Active Rain  more than I can explain

Phone calls and text messgaes when asking how you feel when you don't feel well

Referals back and forth to each other or just advice for a friend in the area

Seeing each other on the Zoom calls is almost like being there in person

It adds that personal touch that makes it extra special

This is what I am grateful for this November 2020 in Active Rain
