I am striving to build a network of friendly outgoing professionals who want to “lift-up” those around them. Word of mouth is a powerful tool I've been using my whole life to help those around me with their endeavors. We will utilize that tool here to help one another grow.
I will try to set up multiple meetups a month at different times and different places to help accommodate everyone. Attending every event isn’t required but some consistency in attendance will be. Any member can suggest locations.
All professions are encouraged to be a part of this; however, only one member of each profession will be allowed to join. Special circumstances can affect this rule.
Example: 2 LCSW one who specializes with children and one who specializes in couples’ therapy.
Membership is not permanent. Reasons for removal from the group:
1. Lack of participation
2. Complaints from other members or people who were referred to you
These are my 2 biggest concerns.
I want our meetups to be fun but still maintain some structure. Therefore, we will handle the important things first and then use all the free time for more casual talk.
New people will get the floor first. I want everyone to feel comfortable sharing what they care about and letting the group know what others can do to help. We are all here for networking after all.
Once the new people have gotten to share then the members will have their turn to share.
I look forward to building a great network with all of you.

Trying to accommodate people who may not be available to meet during the day. Figure I will alternate times between events for that purpose.
This happy hour gives customers half-off 10-inch pizzas. Grab your favorite pie or try something new, this deal is a great time to do it. In addition to pizza, wine and beer are buy one, get one free at the downtown location.
