We have a "permanent" home in Menlo Park for our third-Thursday Group490 Meetups, which is great for me and those local to Palo Alto and the Peninsula. I'd like to hear from our San Francisco members about this... Does this create a huge problem for your participation? What if we had a first-Thursday Group490 Meetup in The City? Would you attend and help that grow? Would anyone want to volunteer as Assistant Organizer for a San Francisco Meetup? For that matter, is there anyone in Los Angeles or other area who would be an Assistant Organizer or a "Chapter Organizer" for additional areas?
Please reply with your thoughts about the above; thanks!
And let's get more people out for tomorrow's Meetup in Menlo... We still have lots of room!
With gratitude, David

Meetup of local designers, inventors, innovators and social entrepreneurs who are intrested in the design, development and distribution or products for the benefit of the Other 90% -- that's about 5.85 billion people -- that's a market. This group is sponsored by Designfluence, a nonprofit aggregator of designers and resources, and is open to collaborative relationships with like groups and individuals. More about Designfluence on our website. We've decided NOT to have membership dues or meeting fees. However, there is an expense for Meetup, costs for food and drink, and a need for funding timely Designfluence projects. Please make a donation of whatever you can afford at . Our first goal is $300+ to work on the backend IT of the GiveBank™ pro bono site. Thank you!
