A Message from Chris Natzke – January 2017 East Chapter Presenter
“It was an absolute pleasure speaking to your amazing East Chapter group in January. I had so much fun presenting my program to such an enthusiastic group and left totally inspired by the great work you are all doing in the world to support seniors. I met with many of you after my talk and several of you asked about having me come to speak at one of your organization’s upcoming events, the availability of my book, Black Belt Leadership and/or about my self-defense classes. Thanks again for requesting further information about my programs and please give me a call if you would like to discuss further how I may serve you or your organization(s).” – Chris Natske

Denver Senior Coalitions has a New Logo Designed by Susan Clarke of Integral Design Group
The Executive Board of the Denver Senior Coalitions made their decision for a logo for the Denver Senior Coalitions. The new logo reflects the goal to consolidate the Coalition Chapters so they operate as a single organizational entity under the name Denver Senior Coalitions. Over the past 2 years the Executive Board has worked on consolidating the bank accounts and streamlined the accounting of the Chapters. With the addition of the 4th Chapter in August 2016, the organization was ready to move forward under one brand called Denver Senior Coalitions. Four graphic designers submitted logo designs. It was a difficult decision to make. In the end a design by Susan Clarke of Integral Design Group was chosen. Susan Clarke will be attending the January coalition meetings where she will introduce her design and her company. Learn more about Integral Design Group with the links below.

Wow! Denver Senior Coalitions has a new website
This website was designed and built by Karin Hall of www.SeniorsResourceGuide.com. Karin shares, “I really do enjoy building websites. It is part working a 3D puzzle bringing in all the details and nuances of an organization, and part writing a book where you are telling the story of the organization. In fact, the ‘telling the story of an organization,’ is one of the most important parts of any website and a big part of what makes the Internet a very powerful marketing strategy and networking tool. I hope you find this website useful – it certainly looks much better than the previous one. Also note that you will see tweaks and changes – a good website is never finished but always growing and getting better. Happy Networking!”
If you have any questions or suggestions about the new website please contact me. In particular, we have online Membership Applications now. Please start joining and give me feedback on how they work. By the way this website is responsive – so let me know how it appears on mobile devices.
