There is a need for events with pre-screened professionals, in settings that facilitate social interaction, and provide entertainment in an organized manner in the San Francisco Bay Area.  For most events, all you have to do is show up and enjoy!

As professionals we recognize the value of these events, and the costs involved.  Therefore this is a PAID group, of $5 per month, which we encourage to be paid quarterly ($15).  This does NOT cover all our costs, but is a baseline that helps cover our expenses, and weeds out people who are not serious professionals and committed to attending.   If you wish to pay for a year in advance, you can do so for a discounted rate of $45.

We do require members (1) give their real name (at least first name), (2) an appropriate picture of themselves in their profile (suitable for recognizing you at events), (3) regularly attend events and be involved with the group, (4) pay the dues within the first month of joining.

New members are encouraged to attend one of the Thursday mixers, which are designed to meet new people and social opportunity for all members.  New members have 30 days to attend an event before they must pay dues.

Events are organized based on member interest and feedback.   The 3rd Thursdays member dues go to pay for our reserved space and a bottle of wine (to keep our hosts happy).  Other events provide a discount or paid completely by the group dues and the organizer of the group.

We ask you pay for guests you bring to events.

Please wait for your approval before attending an event, or contact the organizer for an exception.
