Yep, filters work. Another option is to use URL/s.
Assuming you have permalinks turned on, you can also do this:
On the Connections : Settings admin page under the Advanced tab you can change “region” to “state” so it is more clear in the URL what you’re linking to.
As for featured categories, sorry, no, but … what others have done is create a “Featured” category and then put the Connections shortcode on the page twice. The first being limited to show only the “Featured” category.
I hope that helps!
