January Meetup Recap

In January, more than 50 Hive members reconnected with colleagues and renewed their commitment to the Hive Chicago Network. The Hive Advisory Committee led an interactive Moonshot Gallery Walk, through which members were able to learn about the current focus and upcoming activities within each Moonshot. Members identified ways to plug-into the Hive and set goals for 2018.
