“ For a first meeting I think it was time well spent. Thanks, Carly. One suggestion: We could start a Google Doc (or similar collaborative online resource) listing our skills, that may lead towards more effective networking. A simple verbal "I can do this and I'm looking for that type of work" to 4 other people physically present in the club meeting may not be memorable enough or have a wide enough audience when I see the membership of this online Meetup group is 265 people. ”
