Good Morning Young Professionals,
I hope you're enjoying your weekend so far.
Just short of 11 months ago, I held my first Drinks, Appetizers and Networking event at Bar Louie on May 2nd, 2012. I had just taken over as organizer of this group due to the previous organizer having stepped down and Meetup.com were emailing me (and the rest of the 55 members) to say that if nobody stepped up then the group would be shut down.
I took over the running of this group and since then we have risen from 55 members to what I see today is a fantastic 755 Young Professionals looking to Network and be part of something great. In those 11 months we have had 62 meetups, met great friends and, yes, drunk a few too many drinks!
Now, though, I am looking to get involved in giving back to our community. I think it's time and, to be frank, I think with our membership list it'd be almost irresponsible not to do something to help our community in some way, shape or form.
I'm sure there will be people in the group who won't be interested in this and that's absolutely fine - membership to this group doesn't require anything from you at all. That said, I'm sure there are members of this group who aren't necessarily interested in the events we've been doing so far and may also be looking to give something back to the community and get involved in events. These are the people I'd like to hear from.
I will admit this is all new to me, but as Organizer I'm willing to learn and get things rolling with your support. I was thinking of doing something local at first as the old adage goes, "Charity starts at home".
Do any of our members have something they're involved in and would like to spread the word?
Please let me know either by reply email or in the Central Florida Young Professionals Group website forum (here).
I look forward to hearing from those of us who are willing to help make a difference.
