It seems as if we have hit a somewhat critical mass of 40+ members. I would like to solicit for ideas on possible topics of our first Meetup (if any), as well as formats and venues. I propose a more structured format (found on the about page
). This may be too rigid for our first Meetup. As to venue, we can possibly do it at Edge Bio
in Gaithersburg, or a restaurant in the Bethesda/Rockville/Germantown areas for lunch or a happy hour. Please leave your ideas on the "Idea Page
" and we can discuss and vote on the ones that work for the most people. We are also currently seeking sponsorship
for the group. Please feel free to contact me personally with any ideas or issues you may be having related to this group or sponsorship.
