Introducing...Magnet's New President!

Dear Magnet members and friends of Magnet, I am excited to be writing you today as the new president of Madison Magnet! I’d like to take this opportunity to reach out to you, our Magnet members, as well as friends of Magnet, to let you know about the exciting changes and brand-new events Magnet will be rolling out this year.

First of all, we’ve got an amazing new executive committee that keeps our organization strong and relevant as we continue to bring our members events that connect young professionals in our community. We’re passionate about providing a variety of volunteer opportunities, social outings and networking events. Please read more about our talented executive committee and board of directors here.

This year we celebrate Magnet’s tenth anniversary, and it’s my pledge to strengthen the Magnet community by offering additional events and value for your membership. We want to foster connections that help you achieve your professional and personal goals.

I also pledge to broaden Magnet’s outreach in the community by cultivating additional partnerships with area businesses and organizations. Members will continue to enjoy the benefits of our partnerships with the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, Madison Magazine, Club 201 and the Clean Lakes Alliance. We’re also excited for our 2014 expanded roster of programming, which includes:

  • CEO roundtable
  • Keynote speaker events
  • A members-only Betty Lou Cruise
  • Our annual golf outing
  • Volunteer opportunities and collaborations with the United Way of Dane County Rosenberry Society
  • Happy hours, which include special incentives at each one
  • Speed networking events
  • And more!

I’d like to encourage you to get involved in one of Magnet’s committees to fortify our efforts for 2014 and beyond. Currently, we have committees set up for community involvement, professional development and social/cultural events. Please contact a Project Lead or myself at with your interest!

Also, I’d love to hear what you think about Magnet right now! Fill out our annual survey for a chance to win a $100 Amazon gift card. 

Thank you for your continued support of Magnet—these are exciting times for our organization, our members, and our community. I look forward to connecting with many of you at this year’s stellar lineup of events!
