  • Hello all,

    This will be a wonderful chance for us to get to meet each other. It will be at the main clubhouse where I live, we won't have access to food, drinks or waiters, so I ask that everyone bring food and drink to share. Parking is not an issue, there is plenty of parking close to the clubhouse. I'll provide the plates, plastic cups & utensils etc.

    Here's a link to the apartment complex address, off of 75th Street close to the Newberry Rd. & 75th St intersection, I75 Exit.

    I plan to get the clubhouse on a regular basis for us to meet monthly. The first meeting everyone will get a chance to do a 2-3 minute max "Who I Am" speech.

    For our future monthly meetings I'll be arranging to have speakers/presentations - preferably from within our membership. To be a presenter you will need to give us a 15-20 minute presentation, a training presentation - some aspect of business - to help the rest of us do business better/faster/smarter. Please call/email me asap so we can discuss and get you on the meeting list as a presenter. I'll explain the type of presentation that will inspire us, to help us as business owners: teach us how to do marketing, advertising, website/social media, to be better and more accomplished business owners - FIRST COME - FIRST SCHEDULED. You can also signup to be an alternate in case the primary presenter is unable to make it.

    I have a projector for us to use - if you will also need a computer you will need to let me know when we schedule your presentation - I do have one I'll just need to have it ready for use at the meeting.

    If we don't get enough presenters from within our own membership, I will look outside of our group for more. If you know of a worthy business that would be interested outside of the group have them contact me.

    I hope to have the entire year of meetings/training scheduled by the end of January 2017.

    Next, because not everyone can meet more than once a month, I'll be arranging "extracurricular" things for us to do: kayaking, group dinners at places like Harry's - Seafood Grill & Bar, trips to Santa Fe Teaching Zoo, Canopy Climbing, Carson Springs Wildlife Conservation Foundation and other local activities. And I welcome suggestions from you - What would you like to learn? What do you want to do for the first time or the 100th time? What do you think our members would enjoy?

    Any questions please don't hesitate to call or email me. I look forward to meeting each of you, all of our 57 members, at our next meeting on Dec 7 @ 7:00pm.
