Member Appreciation Month Recap, Prizes, and Our #ntenthanks!

It’s official: my favorite holiday is NTEN’s Member Appreciation Month (MAM). Every November, we celebrate our NTEN Members with free webinar programs, local events, Member-generated content, and lots of prizes! Once again, NTEN Members made MAM a truly special celebration. From our expert webinar presenters, to our prize sponsors, to the blog contributors, to folks spreading their #ntenthanks, together our Members contributed to the month-long awesome!


Michael Sola, Fight Colorectal Cancer, touched us with his thoughtful and clever #ntenthanks to fellow Members. He gets to take advantage of a 1-month subscription to Foundation Directory Online from The Foundation Center.
