One Year Down!

by Kathy Black

12 December, 2012

It is true. I have been at The Arland Group for one year. The actual date is 12/12/12; I even get a pretty cool anniversary date!

Things that were foreign to me a year ago are becoming a normal part of my day. That overwhelming feeling that hit me almost daily for the first 6 months has subsided and only happens once every couple of weeks now. Some days are more hectic than others and I am still learning, but this year has been pretty amazing and I wouldn’t change it for anything.

We have semi-officially moved into a bigger office across the hall; our headquarters has been relocated to St. Louis; three new members have been added to the team; and projects keep rolling in. Weeks fly by and weekends seem to move at the speed of light. July seems like it happened yesterday and yet here we are looking forward to Christmas.

Being a part of a creative, focused, successful and driven group of dedicated people is just as much fun as it sounds, and I am looking forward to a fantastic 2013!

Keith and his family love IHOP. Upon a recent visit to their local library they happened upon a silent auction where local businesses each sponsored a tree. On that tree, besides the great ornaments, were gift cards. Keith scored the gift cards and the perfect office tree, which will greet people alongside Kathy in her new office.[/caption]
