Hi Everyone!


Just a note to let you know I am getting back into the swing of things again! I haven't disappeared completely, but for those who were not aware - I had a baby in Feb. (Bridget) and she is great!! So while I work on our next meeting - I do ask you to think about some ideas of what you would like to have happen with our group. Let me know if you would like some guest speakers - and what kind or who, do you want some networking mixers? Or perhaps some more interactive group activities. Please drop me a line - you can email at and send some ideas.


So for now - if you have an event that you think the group would be interested in knowing about - then let me know and I will send it around to everyone. Try to let me know as far ahead as you can so I can keep the emails to the group members down to a minimum - don't want to send more than 2 a month.


For example - one our group members wanted to let everyone know about the following event - and then I have some coming up as well!


So for now - thank you for sticking around!!
