  • Hi Alyse and Mike,

    Happy to meet fellow west coasters! We are a CF up in Northern California.

  • I'm a part-time PTZer since AZ doesn't transition to daylight savings time and I'm spending a good chunk of my time in AZ these days. (It was awesome to tease folks in the Montana office in January but I'll get payback next week when the forecast is calling for 105+!) Being in the PT gives me lots of new empathy for how significant the time difference is from Eastern Time and how challenging it can be to schedule meetings across the country.

  • I would love to have more connection to other csuite users and CF friends!

    I'm at Jefferson Community Foundation out on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula.
