This weekend, the MCN staff is gathering in Austin for our strategic planning meetings. We get a lot done over just a few days -- and, while we leave the meetings exhausted, we renew our spirits for the year to come. Watch MCN’s social media for photos from our meetings this year! While we were busy prepping for our meetings, on top of our typical workload, we still found time to share some informational and inspiring articles. Here are five of the pieces that MCN staff shared this week:
