Hi Cooking Chicks!
We had a great event tonight with some amazing ladies and some awesome conversation! I am looking to you as my guide on how to push our group forward. There is a group of women who are actively supporting our efforts and want to see our Cooking Club evolve!
The fact that we are now over 800 women is awesome and we want to know what YOU WANT our of us! I had the pleasure a few weeks back of meeting the CEO and Co-Found of MeetUp.com who came to Chicago to hear about us and noted the following:
As we think forward, we are considering about moving on from MeetUp or using it another way. We're looking to create a membership based group where Cooking Chick members join for a membership fee and receive a host of foodie-based benefits, vast discounts, free to deeply discounted cooking classes and a more on-going planned out schedule of amazing events and networking opportunities. This could allow us to rent out kitchen space, bring on big Chefs for classes as well as create rewarding experiences to connect our food-business members those who want to start businesses to invaluable resources and programs. Our new website is being drafted and we'll have tons of new ways to share recipes, have instructional videos and really bring our group together here in Chicago.
Please if you can, share with me your thoughts and ideas about being a membership based club, either monthly fee based or yearly. Under $100 yearly that would allow for you to 1. Maximize your relationship building experience 2. Ongoing cooking classes and skills growth 3. Enjoy free to again deeply discounted events. We are looking for all types of input.
Your opinions are GREATLY APPRECIATED....we will also have a survey that has been in development sent out to everyone and really look to YOUR INPUT to develop our plan moving forward.
