RE: [webdesign-501] When/Where would everyone like to meet for the first group social event?

I have another meeting I run on Thursdays.

It is also possible to have a virtual meeting with gotomeeting or some other software.


The other meeting I do has been in Starbuck’s (too noisy), Haggen (in the food court) and now it is at Elmer’s.

Finding a place is a bit of a challenge.

Best to pick a spot and a time to meet and keep it consistent or you will lose people.


Thanks for putting this together.

You can’t make it work for everyone so just find the best you can and call it good.


It would be nice to post what people can do for use in local outsourcing.

Subject: [webdesign-501] When/Where would everyone like to meet for the first group social event?


Hi Everyone,
It's time for some action in the group. Our first meetup will be held soon with the structure of a social event. Being the first event for this group we should use this time to get to know other participants of the group. Trade business cards, discuss future group meetings, resources, have some fun unwinding with like minded individuals, etc...

This should be a great time to get our bearings as a group and find out what will benefit everyone the most. Since this social event affects the future direction of this group I strongly urge everyone to participate if at all possible.

With that said I would like to ask everyone what time would work best for them. I realize that everyone in our industry is generally a very busy individual and ask for suggestions as to what would fit best for our members.

If anyone would like to help coordinate this first social event then please contact me at: [address removed] or by phone (503) 922-1079.

I would also love to get all the suggestions I can for meeting places. If anyone has any ideas or experience with past events that have gone well then please let me know.

Greg Hyatt had recommended we get together at Urban Grind Coffee ( for our first event. So far I agree with him.

Do any of you have any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance for everyones time and I look forward to hearing back from some of you!
