As of my writing this note, we are a group of 650+ 20 & 30 somethings.
We are steered by one organizer (yours truly), and six assistant organizers who do an awesome job of herding the cats.

We are all much obliged to you, dearest assistant organizers.
hmm...we, "organizers inc" should have an "org" meetup and I'll buy the first round.

So now you want to be an assistant organizer too?
I thought you might....ya lush.

Anywaaaay, become an assistant organizer. Here are some benefits from personal experience.

I find organizing ;

  • fun & invigorating. I wonder....who am I going to meet today?
  • gets me out and about
  • has me trying new things & introducing people to old favorites
  • gives me the reigns (everyone else has to do what I say don't...)
  • Is teaching me how to interact with various personalities ( tests please)
  • ...well...I see familiar, friendly faces in town, etc
  • grants me opportunities to meet interesting people, and I've made some long term friends along the way
  • And there's cake. ...a la mode.

Okay...that last one was a lie. But the rest holds.

If you are already an assistant organizer and you no longer want to be one / you hate puppies, please let me know, and I'll remove the role., become an event organizer, or an assistant organizer.
Why? Because you are a giver who wants to help diversify our group events, in order to reflect our rich interests and backgrounds.
How? Just send me a note and it shall be done.
Is there training involved? : Yeah. Here it is...up to something interesting / fun? Take us along by telling us when and where it's happening. That's it.

As always, you're welcome to ping me with any further questions, comments, etc.
