IT Professionals, Webmasters/Others for Community Networking Monthly Meetup

WHEN: 3rd Sundays of each month, same time and place each month.

COST: free admission, open to the public (self pay for lunch/drink, please bring a few donations to donate to charity and win an "thank you" gift)

WHERE: Burma Restaurant, 740 6th St. NW 2nd floor, DC 20001 (restaurant phone[masked])

DIRECTIONS: About a block from red line Metro subway stop: Gallery Place/Chinatown, exit 7 and H St. NW, DC, walk on H st. to 6th, it is a few doors down. 740 6th St. NW 2nd floor, DC 20001.

What to expect:

This is a community networking event. This is to reach out to IT techs since many people in our network are looking for IT help or "co-founders"... and this is an opportunity for IT pros to meet prospective clients and business associates. You'll make new contacts who may be able to refer you in the future. This is a chance to learn about what nonprofit organizations are looking for, to share your expertise as a webmaster, IT business owner or web technology specialist and to practice relationship and marketing skills for overall career development and community support.

Being successful as a webmaster or IT business owner involves understanding where others are coming from, especially people who are not IT pros. This is the place to become familiar with what it means to become more than a webmaster, to become a great communicator, master contributor and to be invited to join new projects as a revenue sharing partner.

The right brain does not work in a linear logical left brain fashion. It works more like a scanner, gaining more information with each scan or conversation. Commitment, interest, relationship skills, stability and emotional intelligence are more important than technical skill to many. Your interest is reflected over time with consistent participation as a member of the co-organizing committee for free ongoing community networking events. Express your interest to volunteer, demonstrate your capabilities and build comfort level with new prospects to move ahead with an entrepreneurial spirit.

The first step is to get to know each other better to see if we are ready to work together harmoniously with appreciation, forgiveness and understanding. These monthly community events provide opportunities to develop more allies and to connect with others interested in similar topics. Express your interest to the co-organizers and followup.

WHEN: 12:30PM TO 2:30PM on the third Sundays of each month.

This is a wonderful D.C. economic, personal and community development group, we welcome you! You will members from,, and others.

    This was an awesome event. I met lots of really interesting people and made some really high potential connections. I also developed several leads that are likely to lead to future business. The event was well run and fun to attend. I felt very comfortable meeting everyone and the organizers did a really good job of making it easy to connect with the other participants.

    I had a good meal and at a good price too. I can't wait to go back next month. If you're serious about networking and want to meet a lot of people you would never meet anywhere else, this is the place to go. If you're reading this I hope to see you in October :)

    I was your mood motivator and roving ambassador, today.

    Our goal for you was for you to feel like you were sitting at home at your kitchen table. I trust we did that this afternoon.

    What a great group of people that showed up today.
    They were interesting, informative and creative as well.

    I made a new friend and connected with two new clients.

    Remember..." Change is the essence of life, be willing to surrender who you are for who you will become".

    If I can be of service to you in either area or if you want to chat more about ABC let me know. [masked] or [masked] Keep on Changin'
