And they’re off…

Hello out there and thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedules to check us out. Hubba hubba.  This is a new experience for us at Events.org, so I think I speak for everyone when I say that we’re pretty excited to get our blog rolling.

First things first, a little about us.  Events.org is a small software company located in Chicago, IL (don’t let that fool you, we get around *wink*).  We provide on-demand solutions for event management and CRM, blah blah blah…you can go to our website to learn more about all that here http://www.events.org.  Now for the real meat: our team.  There’s only a handful of us but each of us makes our own special impact on the office.  As we go along, all of us will be posting stories about our industry, our lives, exciting events, etc.  And when I say each of us, I mean it.  They might not think they have to participate, but they will.  I promise.

So stay tuned, you may even get a shout out!
