What we're about

Welcome to the Asian Social Group Meetup!

The Asian Social Group group is for Asians (all types; Chinese, Japanese, Korean, etc… AND we welcome all race/ethnicities to join) who want to meet and socialize as well. This is meant to be a social group where you'll go out and have fun and meet people who have similar interests.

We have quite a number of events, averaging one or two a month, from Bubble Tea, to Movies, to Karaoke, and of course, the favorite Asian pastime...FOOD!

The Asian Social Group Meetup is a real names and photo group, so when you signup (it's free to join), please use your real name and post your photo so people see who you are. This is not the place to be shy, we're a friendly group.

We do hope that if you RSVP for an event that you will show up. Thus we are enforcing a two strikes and you're out policy in the group. If you miss two events in a row that you have RSVP'd for, then you are removed from the group, just so we can keep everyone accountable. We do sometimes put an extra two to five dollar meetup event fee onto random event, this is only to pay for the meetup group fees that Meetup.com charges for te group. All other events are at the/your cost of the event.

Amazon Sellers Networking, Walkthrough & Starting Your Own Branded Products (PL)

Vancouver Public Library, Renfrew Branch

Update: As a result of further feedback from people who attended our meeting last Monday, our next event now has three parts: A) There will be a walkthrough and Q&A about the Amazon seller backend B) I will talk about Starting Your Own Branded Products (Private Label) to sell C) It is a networking event for you to meet other Amazon Sellers Please be sure to RSVP immediately so we can get an accurate attendance number. ---- From survey reply results from our Amazon sourcing and selling event last Monday, there were several common characteristics for the audience in group in attendance. Two of which being: 1) When it comes to selling on Amazon, everyone is a literal newbie, many have not even started their account yet. 2) Most prefer to learn in a live, group setting, rather than through books or online. A) So I've decided to continue the momentum of the group and have asked a friend of mine to come in and give a presentation on how to start your Amazon account and navigate the backend dashboard. He is doing so well on Amazon now, that he's quit his day job to focus on it full time. We'll have a projector showing what is happening in an Amazon account, live, on screen as he goes through it to tell you what we are looking at and how to use it. B) ALSO, it appears there are a lot of people who want to start their own brand/private label products to sell on Amazon. I'll talk about what to think about when considering going down the Private Label branded route (from the perspective of sourcing product and branding). C) We'll have time before and after for networking and people can catchup with each other about the study groups we've formed (in the last event). Please RSVP and feel free to invite your friends. ---Details--- What: Amazon Sellers Networking, Walkthrough & Starting Your Own Branded Products (PL) Hosted by: Exporting & Sourcing from China to North America Meetup group.

Are you interested in movies? How about acting or helping make a movie?

Here is something to stimulate your creativity. I bet most of you don't know that I used to be a filmmaker about a decade ago, before moving into marketing. Now, as a photographer, my equipment takes very nice cinematic video and I've noticed a whole new genre of 20's and 30's young adult drama's/romance movies coming out of China.... So I wonder if anyone is interested in getting together to make some short videos, just for fun, of interesting stories. These can be fun promotional videos or we can write a script/take a scene from a movie and we'll work on making it. If you are interested in coming out as an actor, editor, camera, writer, etc.... then RSVP on this event and then send me an email to [masked] and tell me what you'd be interested in. We'll see what happens between now and the spring. ~Ronald
