The First Meetup of 2013

  • Jan 24, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Greetings & Happy New Year everyone!

I know we've taken a bit of a hiatus, but now that the new year is here, we figure we should get this Meetup group 'meeting' again :)  And our group has grown close to 400 members!

This first meetup we're going to have is intended for a smaller group (maximum 16 people).

My Co-Organizer, Bill Whitehead, has graciously allowed us to host the meetup at his new corporate office in North York (close to the Sheppard Subway).  Because we're limited on space, we have to cap the group at 16. Also we have to charge $10 per person to cover the cost of the light refreshments as well as clean-up.

At the meetup on the Jan 24th, the agenda will be broken down to the following:

1.) Introduce yourself
2.) Talk about your Most Memorable Piece of Work of 2012 (it could be something you did, or something someone else did - either way, be ready to show-and-tell).
3.) General discussion about the Advertising industry and where you would like to see this Meetup Group heading.
4.) View the top 10 Ads that won at last years Cannes Lion Festival.

The board-room will have a screen and Wi-Fi. Also please note that security will lock the door by 5pm, so to be let in when you arrive, please contact:

Bill at (416)[masked] or
Denny at (416)[masked]

We hope to schedule a meetup once a month, so if you miss this one, stay tuned for the next.

    Hey everyone, it was great to meet all of you on Thursday! I wrote up a little recap of the night on my blog so check it out, there are pics as well:

    I had a great time and I look forward to the next event. I see that it is going to be March 7 so I will RSVP when the date gets closer and I am 100% sure I have nothing due that day.

    Bill, Denny, thanks for organizing this Meetup and I will hopefully see everyone again at the next event

      Hey Noel, I remember you asking for sites with examples. This one generally posts portfolios of Copywriters. Might be useful to you: http://www.moderncopy...­

    What a great, eclectic group of people! We got an underground rapper turned Ad student, a copy-writing wizard from Venezuela who worked in the Netherlands and Spain, a woman who has done some pretty cool work for Nissan Altima, and a fashion account coordinator from France who's got an interview with Publicis - good luck and let us know how it goes. It was fun sharing ideas, and learning from people's experiences - that's why we hold these meetups. Thank you Bill for hosting it at your new office. Looking forward to the next one.
