Our speaker today was Mel Carson, founder and principal strategist of Delightful Communications, a Seattle-based Modern Marketing, Digital PR and Branding agency. Mel's topic was "Personal Branding." In the short time he had to present, Mel took us from examining who we are, what is our personal branding goal and professional purpose, to exploring who is our target audience. Mel concluded with a discussion of the DNA of a successful in-person or online personal brand, who's four primary elements are to be: authentic, useful, relevant, and actionable.

Mark Johnson, Executive Director, talked to us today about Habitat for Humanity of Snohomish County. Mark shared with us Habitat's model to get families into homes and the many volunteer opportunities that exist. He also discussed Habitat Stores and how the public can both donate and shop for building materials ranging from furniture and appliances to cabinets, flooring, lighting, roofing materials, windows, and tools. Habitat sees a world, "in which every person has a decent place to live," through its model of working in partnership with the community to build simple, decent, affordable homes.
