Via Gretchen Pettet, co-organizer of NetSquared St. Charles County: 

Thank you for attending this week's NetSquared St.Charles County session.  Leveraging Social Media to Tell Your Story was a great session.  While our panelists were fabulous, your participation and questions made it even more beneficial.  Please take a few minutes to complete this brief survey so we can capture what you liked (and what we can do better).

Below is a list of resources that Laurie Patton Glasson provided.  You can thank her by liking, following, commenting and sharing her social media posts.  Her profile links are below.

Thanks, again!  Have a great weekend.
