    This was definitely a 5 star session. The material was on target for the needs of the group and was presented by Jim and Angela in a professional manner, but without legal jargon. I have paid for workshops that did not come close to providing this much value. The organizer, the presenters, and the audience all made this a successful event.

    This session covered the legal and practical aspects of trademarks and copyrights. Myths were busted like referencing a source you copied does not protect you from copyright infringement and practical tips which include registering for copyright within 3 months to get key legal benefits. +Jim Verdonik and +Angela Doughty have a great business intuition and were able to explain complex legal questions in simple and usable form. Awesome meetup session!

    This was probably the best Business MeetUp I have been to. Not only did I benefit from the knowledge shared by the 2 presenters, but I also thoroughly enjoyed the dialogue between the other attendees.

    Is there a waiting list in case you have a cancellation? I would like to attend, but the workshop was filled when I tried to register. Thanks!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
