East Side(Seattle) Investor's Business Daily Meetup Group Message Board › East Side Investor's Business Daily Meetup Group Discussion Forum › Event details changed: East Side Investor's Business Daily April Meetup-update
The group attending the recent meetings seems to prefer a location more centralized to the Eastside like Bellevue. The problem is finding a place which is free or reasonably priced which has both internet access and a computer screen projector. I don't like the idea of meeting without these tools because we would just end up with a round table discussion or trying to see stock charts on a small computer screen.
I have checked with Bellevue Community College and their room rental charges would raise our attendance charge to $15-$20. The Bellevue Regional Library won't let us reserve a room until the week of the event and then the reservation is dependant on availability. The library has the internet connection but not a projector and screen.
The best solution would be for someone to volunteer their office which has the requisite audio-visual equipment and internet access. Another solution would be for some one to volunteer a computer projector and screen. Failing either of those two options, I would like to have a volunteer who would be willing to make some calls about other possibilites such as school districts,fire stations, restaurants,motels,community centers, or other meeting facilities.
Those of you willing to pay the higher price for Bellevue Community College should also contact me so I can evaluate the feasibility of that option.
Since we have not yet found an acceptable alternate meeting location, I have tentatively scheduled the April 12th meeting at the usual location at the UW Bothell Campus. The room number will probably change. I will update you with logistical and agenda information yet this week.
People who receive this e-mail and no longer are interested should reply to me with a request to be removed from membership or go to the website and remove yourself.
