Happy, sunny Monday! Here is your weekly source of all things Frontrunners coming in the days ahead! Special news and events are at the beginning of this post, and regular/reoccurring events are on the lower half.
*Please note that we are having a grace period between now and February 1st where you will still receive weekly emails from FrontRunners if you registered for the 2013 Year. This correspondence will cut off, in addition to all of your member privileges, on February 1st, unless you have renewed or joined on for the 2014 year. Because we will be sending messages to members from both 2013 and 2014, some members will receive the same email twice during this period. This period will not last long, so we thank you for your patience and look forward to amazing year!
