Nuts and Bolts and Beer

We’ve had requests for a program series specifically for those who want to get some insight into the decision-making and organizing processes of our branch, give input, and maybe find an entry point to volunteering. We’re doing this monthly so people can find their way into participating at their own pace. We’ll have at least a couple of board members there who can answer questions and update members on new developments, projects, and things under consideration. Join us to get a better look at the workings of our branch and consider getting involved in organizing CFI–Portland.

Despite the beer and the venue, this is a business meeting. If you are mainly looking for an opportunity to socialize, have conversations with other members or share your story, there will be opportunity after the meeting or at one of our many social events.

Please RSVP early. If we get more than 10 people, we may need to move to a different location, and that is much easier if we know in advance.

    Speaking as a new member I found the meeting to be of great value, and I can't wait to get started on some of these missions.

    This meetup was a great idea. Even though it was often hard to hear what people were saying, I felt that it was a very productive way to get people more "engaged" in CFI.

    Despite the sound of the band in another room, attendees heard how the CFI Portland Board is organized and operates. People voiced opinions and concerns, and received Board responses. Some volunteered to help organize materials. All in all, a decent meeting.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
