    Note for those on the Waiting List: Spaces almost always open up the week before the event, so keep this date open if you can! When spaces do open up, you'll automatically be added to the RSVP list and you should receive an e-mail letting you know.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
