  • Onyx Community Connection

     I'm very pleased thus far. It would be nice to participate in an Onyx member meet and greet. Many attendees met at events were from other groups. It would allow for putting faces with photos as well as discuss where people are from and what they're doing today.

    G on Mar 31, 2013.

  • Onyx Community Connection

     I got there a little late. The space was harder to find and a much smaller venue than I expected, but I enjoyed the art. I did not attend the "after" festivities and there seemed to be a lot of confusion about where to meet, from the several email messages I received after the art show. Organizers of such events might want to check their additional after-party venues for business hours, etc prior to the event date. 

    Lisa N. on Feb 22, 2013.

  • Onyx Community Connection

     I didn't know where to meet up with anyone and this was my first event.

     The Organizers of this Meetup should have their own cheerleading crew :0) Every event is so well put together and caters to everyone's needs. I love the grassroots approach to this meetup because anyone can plan an event or activity and all seem to be enthusiastic and active with participating. The organizers are always so friendly, personal and customer service focused. Like the Burger King ole slogan Onyx does things our way and I love it!
