2024 Virtual Events for Members

Building Resilience for the Busy Season

We’d love for you to join us for a virtual community call on Monday, May 20th at 5:00 PM where we’ll come together for a conversation on how we can better take care of ourselves and support our fellow vendors (especially as we approach the summer wedding season)!

 

As a group, we’ll discuss practical tips on how to maintain our physical and mental well-being, even during busy season, and ways we can support each other to facilitate a caring vendor community. So grab a snack, pour yourself a favorite beverage, and join us for a safe conversation about strategies for self-preservation and nurturing professional relationships! Contact us via email at hello@emeraldhour.org for the invite and Zoom link.
