- March Southern California Domainers Meetup
The first Southern California Domainers Meetup of the year will occur on March 30th, 2017. This meetup will be the first of its kind as it will also combine another meetup that I have started called the Southern California Cybersecurity Professionals! Cybersecurity is a hot topic these days. You can talk to the majority of registries and registrars out there and they will tell you that they have either brought in a specific set of Cybersecurity tools or that they are developing some of their own in-house. I look forward to seeing all of you there! More details about this meetup will be revealed soon, but I wanted to personally thank .XYZ again for hosting us.
- Domain Startup Summit 2016
Hello Southern California Domainers, It's official Domain Startup Summit 2016 will take place this summer on July 30th at CrossCampus in Santa Monica. This is one of the events that you will definitely not want to miss. Domain Startup Summit was established to unite the domain, startup and investment industries. This unified event platform will provide up-to-date industry information and partnerships that allow entrepreneurs to brand, develop and launch successful businesses. Our core values come down to these three words: Brand, Develop & Launch. Although these three keywords are easier said than done, we believe that every entrepreneur has the ability to transform an idea into something bigger and better. Domain Startup Summit 2016 is this summer's #1 meeting place in Santa Monica, California to connect with investors, startups and the domain industry thought leaders. Join us at the beautiful Cross Campus on July 30th and together we'll inspire each other to take our business ideas and partnerships to the next level!

- November Southern California Domainers Meetup
Our November meetup will be held at the offices of 101Domain.com. They have been nice enough to sponsor and host the November meetup and will be providing attendees with hors d'oeuvres, pizza and beverages. I'm excited about this meetup as it will be one of our first events held within the San Diego region. Our main speakers for November's meetup will be Joe Alagna (VP of Channel Development @ 101 Domain.com) and Renee Zau (Co-Founder & CEO @ DonationMatch.com & SamplingforGood.com). DonationMatch.com and SamplingforGood.com are both self-service online platforms that transform how companies use product donations and samples for marketing at school and community events, in turn helping organizations more easily secure in-kind donations for fundraising event auctions, raffles, and gift bags with a single application. After our meetup we will head to one of the many local breweries! 101Domain.com has been nice enough to sponsor these festivities as well. For those of you driving in from Los Angeles, I would suggest making this a weekend trip. If you have any questions on hotels, etc... I will let you know where we will be staying. I look forward to seeing you there! Best Regards, Jason Thompson Southern California Domainers Organizer

- September Southern California Domainers Meetup
Get your business cards ready as the first Southern California Domainers meetup of the year will take place on September 26, 2013. We've had a number of formal gatherings in the past and it has been very educational. This time around I want to take the formal out of it and gather the group together to network among each other. Some of us are great networkers and some of us need a little help. September's meetup will be purely about sharing a few drinks, stories and really connecting with one another on a business and personal scale. We haven't had a meetup in a year, so this will be the perfect way for everyone to catch up. In the coming months, look forward to meetups being scheduled more often. Thanks to all of those that reached out in the past few months. The group will now be holding meetups on a regular basis. More details will be provided about September's meetup once I am able to get a head count for it. Best Regards, Jason
