Nurturing Your Network through Loop Closing

Here's a simple yet not too frequently practiced tip for nurturing your social network. I call it Loop Closing. I found myself doing it the other day and thought it would be worth breaking down here. I was following up on something with the contact for one of our newest SCI AmeriCorps community partners. As I was writing the email to our contact for the program, I thought I'd copy the agency's Executive Director as well. This triggered the recollection that several months ago, I'd been introduced to that ED by one of our current site partners, Milly Arbaje-Thomas, who runs the Mattapan Action for Boston Community Development Office (ABCD).

Of course, I had immediately thanked Milly for this introduction.
