95. Memphians Celebrate City’s Good News Website -

Memphians who launched a website extolling the joys of living here because they were tired of their city being bad-mouthed will celebrate on Tuesday the one-year anniversary of MemphisConnect.com.

In that time, the website has attracted visits from people in more than 2,500 cities. It has become a recruiting tool for some of the city’s top employers. And potential tourists are using it as a vacation guide.

The website is an initiative of The Leadership Academy.

The nonprofit organization is hosting a party from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Playhouse on the Square, 51 S. Cooper St.

The only admission charge is a willingness to speak up for Memphis, said Elizabeth Lemmonds, director of communications and marketing for The Leadership Academy.

“Really the idea for the event is to be as uniquely Memphis as the site is, to recognize what’s wonderful about Memphis, the creativity and the Memphis talent,” she said.

The event includes food, Ghost River beer, entertainment and a special announcement.

“We were tapped by Broadway’s ‘Memphis,’ the musical, for a very exciting promotion that will be unveiled at the May 11 anniversary celebration,” Lemmonds said.

The keynote speaker is Tom Schmitt, SVP of FedEx Solutions. CB Richard Ellis and Waddell & Associates Inc. are presenting Tuesday’s event for MemphisConnect.com.

MemphisConnect.com began with a focus group organized by The Leadership Academy.

“We heard over and over again about hidden treasures,” Lemmonds said. “Why do they need to be hidden?”

The group included graduates of The Leadership Academy who had diverse interests.

“People wanted to talk about their favorite locally owned restaurant, but they also wanted to talk about why they love raising a family in the Memphis area and the places they take their kids on the weekend, the way they get involved in nonprofits, their favorite hole in the wall,” Lemmonds said.

The organizers decided that a website would be the best way to showcase the diverse interests of Memphians who love their city.

“In the first year we had over 550 different posts, over 75 voices of diverse Memphians who either had a regular profile or who did guest posts for us here and there,” Lemmonds said.

People from 2,500 cities, including locations outside the United States, went to the site to learn where Memphians liked to hang out.

“We worked with a number of human resources teams and are actually being used as a recruiting tool by companies like International Paper, St. Jude, Smith & Nephew and Pinnacle,” Lemmonds said. “Methodist Le Bonheur even includes us on the recruiting piece of their website.”
