Not All Superheroes Wear Capes

Join the Gateway Chapter as we drill down on crime and safety in St. Louis with Sgt. Matt Karnowski of the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department and Kelli McCrary, Director of Security and Urban Space of Downtown STL, Inc. While much of the presentation will be focused on Downtown St. Louis there will be many takeaways for all over the St. Louis region. We’ll take a look at pre-Covid statistics and how they compare to what the police department and other security agencies are seeing, and leave understanding what is being done to combat crime and what resources are available to you and your employees.

About the 2020 Virtual Connection Schedule

This virtual connection is open to all ALA Gateway Members as well as other decision-makers and decision-influencers within their firms.  There is no cost to participate in the below nine events throughout October 2020 which make up ALA Gateway's 2020 Virtual Connection.  Each event is unique so check back periodically to see what's new.  

This new event takes place of the Chapter's Annual Expo. There will definitely be prizes awarded throughout the month so attend as many sessions as you are able to.  The more sessions you attend the more times your name will go into the pot for the Grand Prize of $500, yes $500!  Plus, all the knowledge and fun you can take.  

We know promotional items are a big hit at expo so for attending any one of the sessions below you will receive a special gift from all of the participating business partners.  

Be sure to sign up for each event individually and add to your calendars.  Plus, we encourage decision-makers and decision-influencers within your firms to attend.  

Business Partners are only eligible to attend the event their company is sponsoring as well as the Marvel-ous Costume Party and Happy Hour on October 29, 2020 at 4:30PM.
