2022 Ten Forward's Year in Review
2022 was our busiest year yet here at Ten Forward! We are so grateful to finally be able to safely work together in our office as well as host and attend many in-person and virtual events. We are so excited to see what 2023 brings!
Read on for some of Ten Forward's highlights from 2022.
This year we welcomed five awesome new crew members! You can learn more about them in their blog posts.
We also restarted our internship program this summer and got to work with Pragya and Kayla from YMCA's YWeb program!

New Client Spotlight
This summer we revamped the Dane County Bar Association website. Dane County Bar Association, DCBA for short, is a professional organization for lawyers in Dane County.
Our crew moved the DBCA website over to The Bridge, Ten Forward's custom website platform, and made it more functional for users. Check it out here!
