2016: The Best is Yet to Come

2016 RTS Updates for the New Year


There is no time like January to hit the reset button and set goals for the New Year. These last six months for the Rising Tide society have been filled with non-stop excitement, but we’ve enjoyed taking the last two weeks to relax and reflect. And today we’re here to share with you some exciting initiatives for 2016. Here are a few of the changes you will be seeing throughout the next year:

  1. An updated website: We’ve made a few improvements to make the website easier to navigate. Among the highlights are new tabs for Education and The Summit. It will also be easier than ever to locate a nearby TuesdaysTogether using our interactive map.
  2. A revamped blog featuring posts from industry leaders and members of the community. Have a question? Submit it to be answered for our new “Ask Anything” column. Or catch us on “Fearless Fridays” as we feature members of the Rising Tide Society community who are doing bold things in the community. You can submit here.
  3. A whole lotta [FREE] education: Our new education tab will feature monthly PDFs, webinars, and downloadable guides. Have something you would like to contribute to our educational resources page? Details coming soon for how to submit! In the meantime, browse our selection of upcoming free upcoming webinars and guides!
