Solar Bytes - February 2024

We’re well into 2024 now, and busy taking action on all the plans we made in January. January was a fun month for us, celebrating Community Manager Appreciation Day, having our Global Kickoff, getting a new CMO, and more. We’re working hard to bring our 11th THWACKcamp to life, in the planning stage for this year’s SWUGs, and continuing to work on this great community. Stay tuned to those pages for updated information.
