What we're about
Over the past 6 years, I have enjoyed running this group, but I was disappointed we never were able to gain any significant traction. Attendance was never great even with the 100+ members we have in the group. I tried to pick topics that I thought were interesting, but they apparently did not resonate with the membership. Rather than continue to spend my own money to support the group, I have decided that it is time to shutdown the Meetup group effective now.
All hope is not lost if you are still wanting to be engaged with other like-minded people in town. The Advancing Technology in Wilmington meetup group is growing and has brought in some pretty impressive presenters/speakers in the past. The meetings are held at Tek Mountain about once a month. Topics vary depending on member feedback and which speakers are available. Suggestions are always welcome as well.
You can (and should) join their Meetup group here (http://meet.meetup.com/wf/click?upn=pEEcc35imY7Cq0tG1vyTt5I3-2FkOygpMJKs1-2BJk22XgRUlSqDIi0z19WiIkslZhHQcwAU6XDTRnFaPW-2B5Gu8PLPsMlSzWDIUTXfAab7Kr4u4-3D_ruicyMeHMSj5Wiwkn8AoP1JpNpCFUu8RxE0ig7i6e-2BKpAy9JpZ8ztywcmLtMbrujmfGd6R7ed0fm1qsgzWttPCP88R1tf5-2BpySHrwcg17KdYNQdiMwRGhhMKuCYLS36YUqQUzTKROGqc2kENKgkT22kNdsnL3PTnFyof7U2wuKA-2BwRa84pa-2F-2BVb-2BylS4mWOKl5JSVAlRD-2Fl2oTDMTXy7MJqDseG1D3WgFtc4STG6-2Fxw-3D). There is also a free-standing website for the group here (http://meet.meetup.com/wf/click?upn=XTL-2BADyqX-2FD82kkVyMmL1fFMvP3Edn1ZGekFcB6SzwLaPpu-2FhOf6ZPIABljAm-2F3e_ruicyMeHMSj5Wiwkn8AoP1JpNpCFUu8RxE0ig7i6e-2BKpAy9JpZ8ztywcmLtMbrujmfGd6R7ed0fm1qsgzWttPAIsKcASj9aDXkTZ8Ji1FkemMzI7A3GADzdS8hz4I3QapGRMWktHiiEln9DDJtXp-2FE-2FyNJwmeaiVf-2BYXOw9OgLNLMXbnNvED4ASzU6-2BIbnJXfbEF4l6Dgy2NOYRcDhYEGyaBYiIc-2BR8xEoCAvxyLBC0-3D). The free-standing site includes a calendar of tech/entrepreneur events around town as well. So, feel free to subscribe to that and expand your network.
I have enjoyed meeting and talking with all of you over the years and hope to see you at other Tech meetings in Wilmington. I also regularly attend the Triangle .Net Users Group in Raleigh where they normally have 100 members at each meeting monthly meeting. Their numerous special interest groups meet regularly.
