2018 was a busy year in your Thrivent Member Network! We went from 4 events in 2017 with approximately 826 in attendance to 24 events in 2018 with 1,511 in attendance. Each gave attendees an opportunity to advance their "Wise With Money" journey and/or live generously by impacting nonprofit organizations in local communities. We began the year with a Faith Build kick off celebration, and moved to 7 retirement workshops presented by nationally known author, Tom Hegna. We held several events to welcome our newest members and help them understand the awesome membership benefits they have at their fingertips. Hundreds of members and guests attended the touching movie showings of "This Day Forward" across the region. We held a "Get to Know Us" event that featured 15 local nonprofits and asked our members to rally together to support 2 member nominated nonprofit organizations for Giving Tuesday with a match opportunity of $10,000 for each (surpassed by both). Wow, what a year!
