APEX Q1 Recap
APEX celebrated our entrance into 2017 with a bang, electing in 30 board members and welcoming APEX members to 4 events in Q1. APEX Cares started off the year by making a trip to the Los Angeles Food Bank in February, where we sorted and packaged canned goods and other foods for the hungry. APEX volunteers helped to package food for more than 5010 people! APEX Cares volunteers returned in April to Pasadena to continue our long-standing support of Kids Reading to Succeed, a children’s education program that serves to promote literacy and inspiring children to read books. Thank you to all of our APEX Cares volunteers who came out to serve their communities!
In March, APEX kicked off our networking programs with our New Member Mixer at City Tavern Downtown, where nearly 100 new and returning members came out to celebrate International Women’s Day, meet the 2017 APEX board, and mix and mingle with appetizers and cocktails. Also in March, APEX in partnership with Northwestern Mutual threw our first Professional Development event of the year, welcoming successful business owners and entrepreneurs Alex Yu, Chantel Bonneau, and Jenny Leung as our guest panelists. APEX members networked with finger foods, wine, and a beautiful high-rise view of the sunset before participating in a panel discussion on how to grow and manage a business.
