EMERGE YEAR IN REVIEW: 2021 EDITION



We honestly can’t believe that it’s December already. Just last week we stuffed ourselves with turkey and started decorating for Christmas. For our last post of 2021, we thought we’d look back on some great memories, and get you excited for some things to come.

Content galore There was a lot of great content submitted by our members this year. Here’s a few links to some relevant articles:

Are you an EMERGE member who loves to write and is interested in contributing to our monthly blog in 2022? We are looking for content relevant to our audience of young professionals, and are seeking contributors among our members. If you have an idea, email marketing@emergelakeland.com. We would love to feature it!

Top events We had a lot to make up for in 2021 after 2020, and we made some amazing memories. Here are a list of events that had everyone talking this year:

  • Most attended event: EMERGE Gala: Murder Mystery!

  • The newest event: The Most Awkward Networking Event

  • The sharpest event: Membership Drive at Axe Calibur

  • Most impactful event: S.O.L.E. Saturday

  • Top professional development event: Follow the Leaders: Resilient Leadership

We still have one more event up our sleeve in 2021, and if you haven’t signed up for our Vision Board Workshop yet, there is still time! Don your most festive holiday sweater and join us for a few hours of fun and crafts.

Getting connected Our Marketing Committee worked hard to amp up our presence on social media this year, and you all gravitated the most toward Facebook, closely followed by the ‘gram. Our focus has been generating relevant, appealing and engaging content consistently for our audience--and we’ll continue to do that in the new year. And because coming up with content is a full-time job within itself, feel free to reach out to our marketing committee at marketing@emergelakeland.com with any ideas!

In 2022, we also have a plan to feature you, our members, for content. Do you have an interesting job? Have you just started your own business? Got an engaging routine that you think would benefit other professionals? Send us a brief email about it and we'll feature you! Include some pics, or even a video!

Member spotlights We started a new campaign this year that put the spotlight on our members, because they are the reason we exist. If you missed them, no worries! We made you a list:

We also have a few more in the hopper, so stay tuned to our social media pages for more. And if you’re an EMERGE member with a story to share and aren’t too camera shy, reach out to us at info@emergelake and we’ll schedule you for a spotlight.

What’s next? A new year at EMERGE means a new line-up of leadership in our committees. At our annual gala, we announced the new slate for 2022:

We are definitely looking forward to what this upcoming year will bring in 2022. Feel free to reach out to any of these individuals directly with any questions or suggestions, or catch them at a committee meeting next year. There’s also one month left to say good-bye to the current chairs, so check out our calendar for details on the when and where. And if you don’t see you this year, Happy Holidays and a very Happy New Year! Catch us on Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram.
