I decided to take over this meetup because we need a group for finance and finance related professionals in the DC area to network. If you work in finance or a related industry like investment banking, commercial banking, hedge funds, private equity, public equity, LBO, credit, M&A, accounting, economics, consulting, corporate finance, etc. then this is *definitely* the group for you.
As for me, I just moved here a few weeks ago to start a job as an investment banker outside of DC. Before this, I worked for two and a half years at a private equity firm in South Florida. I'm also studying for the CFA exam in June which keeps me busy, however I still have some time that I'm going to devote to this meetup. I'm interested in hearing your ideas for meetups, as it's time for this group to get going!
