Hi everyone,

Thank you so much for attending NetSquared DC's Crafting Amazing Stories Tuesday night!

Again, here is the link for the video contest: www.techsoup.org/community/community-initiatives/storymakers. TechSoup will be announcing it April 4, so you have a little jumpstart! Don't forget, there will be big prizes!

Here is the link so that TechSoup can connect you with Taproot in DC in case you want a volunteer videographer: https://www.taprootplus.org/campaigns/storymakers

And here is the link to RSVP for the April 26 storytelling workshop: http://www.meetup.com/net2dc/events/229771419/. We will be posting more details shortly, but we will probably be capping attendance since it's a workshop, so please sign up now, and bring your story ideas and questions.

We'd also like to thank the staff at Vanguard Communications enormously for hosting several of our events this year!

And we'd like to give another shout out to Susan Patterson, who helped out at the event!

We are on Twitter @net2dc. We use #net2dc.
