Four Hundred Monitor, November 16
November 16, 2022 Jenny Thomas
Next week is Thanksgiving, so today we are giving thanks for all of you. We feel quite lucky here in the Jungle to have survived another year, and are looking forward to thriving in 2023. We are also looking forward to a little holiday break – as I am sure are all of you – so look for Monitor again in early December before we close out for the year. Until then, get your fill of the latest industry news and happenings below, and enjoy a little family (and turkey) time. You have our deepest gratitude for your continued support, and we’ll see you after the break!
