    What we're about

    Hey there, If you are a business owner, marketing manager or you work in digital marketing this meetup is for you. We will be hosting a quarterly meetup to discuss a variety of topics from content marketing strategy, search engine optimization, conversion optimization, website design and UX best practices. Really no topic under the umbrella of digital marketing will be off the table. We're interested in hearing what topics you would like to chat about. My name is Kevin Getch and I started this group because when I'm not running Webfor, a local creative and digital agency I volunteer my time serving as the President of SEMpdx. SEMpdx is a non-profit that puts on monthly educational events, an annual digital marketing conference called Engage and our annual Rooftop Networking Party. I realized we didn't have anything like this in Vancouver for industry peeps or business owners. I'm in the process of working out the details, including the date and location of these events. Looking forward to connecting with you all!
