It’s hard to believe that summer has finally come to a close and fall is officially here. The autumn season around the Sassafras office not only means cooler temps but also that our annual fall team meeting is near.
We talk a lot about our virtual environment on the blog. One of the keys to ensuring we stay connected even though we’re spread across various states is coming together twice a year in Kansas City for team meetings. We typically meet in the spring and fall, Wednesday – Friday. Although we are in meetings for long stretches during this time, there are always fun activities planned as well.
Our next meeting takes place on October 23-25, and although not many details of the event have been shared out, I can say that we’ll be meeting and staying somewhere we never have before! Typically we meet a little closer to headquarters in Lenexa, but not this time! If you’re familiar with Kansas City, you might have heard of the Crossroads District. It’s a funky art district in downtown Kansas City with galleries, breweries, and shops all within walking distance. We’ll be incorporating that creative vibe into our meetings this year and drawing inspiration from the eclectic scenes of the Crossroads.
Our hotel also fits right in with the rest of its neighbors in the Crossroads. Once the Kansas City Costume Building, Hotel Indigo has been transformed and features brick walls and art from local artists in the lobby and guest rooms.
This team meeting is sure to be one of our most creative and inspiring yet. Be sure to check back in a few weeks as we recap the meeting and provide pictures and details of our time in the Crossroads!
