We’re Celebrating 19 Years!andrea
Happy Birthday, IT Resource!
November 1 marks our 19th year in business, and we’re thrilled to be able to share it with so many wonderful customers, team members, and friends. As we go through our day-to-day routines it’s easy to get caught up in what’s going on at that very moment, but it’s important to take a step back and see how far we’ve come, too. 2019 was a good year for us as we experienced some exciting changes and growth. Let’s take a look.
Due to all the hard work our engineering team put in, we achieved Microsoft gold status, which was a very exciting accomplishment for us! We also achieved Datto Blue Partner status, which is presented to the top 5 percent of the company’s partners, worldwide.
Tech Insights – Our Monthly Webinar
In 2019, we launched our monthly webinar series, and it’s growing in attendance in each month. Our 30 minute Tech Insights have covered growing business trends, where the future of tech and security are going, and everything in between. We look forward to continuing this series in 2020. If you have ideas for future topics, please send them our way – we’d love to hear from you.
Socials + Celebrations
Work hard, play hard has always been our motto, and we practice it well. This year we hosted our 5th annual March Madness Celebration at Founders Brewing. This event has turned out to be one of our most highly anticipated events of the year.
Of course, we couldn’t let a season go by without playing golf – a lot of golf. We brought back our popular summer golf outing, hosted at the Meadows at Grand Valley State University.
Another event that we always look forward to is the Michigan Bankers Association’s Annual George Harding Scholarship Golf Outing where we got the chance to network with peers and raise money for the George Harding Scholarship Fund which awards scholarships to college students in a financial related curriculum.
We also got a few rounds in with the Muskegon Lakeshore Chamber of Commerce at their Chamber Classic, and of course many tee times with friends and customers alike.
Partner + Community Events
Our relationships with various community and industry organizations have flourished and we’ve been able to attend, speak, and sponsor a number of events over the past 12 months. We’ve enjoyed getting to know many wonderful people through our affiliations with the Michigan Banker’s Association, Community Banker’s of Michigan, Indiana Banker’s Association, Ohio Banker’s League, and the Michigan Manufacturers Association.
Thank you to each and every one of our customers, friends, and partners for allowing us to serve all your IT needs. We couldn’t have made it 19 years without your support. We’re looking forward to seeing what opportunities lie in the year ahead.
