Welcome to our new member feature. We’ve all heard the excuse “I’m too busy” too many times so we’ve simplified our new member feature to illicit short, meaningful responses. 

In the feature we tackle the tough issues such as is the Apple Watch necessary and what are your career accomplishments. As a side note, ELGL is adamantly opposed to the excuse, “I’m too busy.”

Courtney Hayden (LinkedIn and Twitter) is the Communication and Special Projects Coordinator at Borough of State College. She is a graduate of Indiana University.
