[Purpose] Timely, meaningful topics that influence your WordPress consultancy are on our agenda. Most of our super friendly group work with WordPress in one capacity or another in business. It's not uncommon for folks to linger and network after the meeting. Join us and make some new friends. All levels welcome. You will learn a lot!
[Attendance] Keeping with the WP chapter policy, the meetup is free, however, we ask you to please RSVP so we can save a space for you. If you RSVP "Yes" we are holding a seat for you in a venue that has limited seating and parking. We get it - Life Happens. Please, un-rsvp if your plans change.
[Logistics] Arrive a few minutes early to grab a parking spot. There is no overflow parking at our fabulous host venue, Desktop Coworking (http://www.workatdesktop.com). Bring your note-taking device of choice. You can even bring your lunch. Locally roasted coffee, sandwiches, and light food fare are available at Kennesaw Coffee (https://www.facebook.com/KennesawCoffeeCo/) (inside the venue). Great stuff and easy on the wallet.
