Next Meetup

Holiday Season Social!
This meeting will be our Holiday Season Social! Come mingle, network, eat, drink, and have fun! Bring your Significant Other, and any friends interested in our Meetup. There will be no speaker, but of course we're always free to ask each other questions. The food will be sponsored by Toptal (, a consulting network I have happily worked through in the past. (And may again -- in fact I'm waiting to hear back about a project.) It should be MUCH better than pizza! They are probably going to be sponsoring our dinners for the foreseeable future. The location is TENTATIVELY slated as City of Fairfax Library, Meeting Room B (capacity 50 so we shouldn't be as crowded as last time). However, I am in talks with an event space near the Tyson's Corner Metro, and might be able to get a private room at some restaurant IF enough people RSVP and REALLY INTEND TO SHOW UP. These possibilities might also cause the time and date to change. Note that the schedule is a little different this time too. We have the room at the Library from 6 to 9, but that includes half an hour on each end for setup and cleanup. This will be a joint meeting with the DC Computer Consultants (

What we're about

Are you an independent consultant, freelancer, 'solopreneur' or other '1099' professional looking to expand your professional network?

Have you thought about leaving your 'W2' job and taking your career into your own hands, but not sure if you're ready to make the leap?

Do you hire, use or employ independent professionals to support your business needs?

If your answer to any of these questions is "yes", then we invite you to join our group of independent professionals in Northern VA and the DC area. We'll offer a forum for mutual support, business networking, mentorship for aspiring independents and a venue for discussing trends and issues relevant to the rapidly growing independent workforce in the DC Metro area.
