It's almost time for our next meet-up, and I'd like to target the first couple weeks of June. Please respond with your interest and availability, and I'll set it up.
Here are the standard logistics:
McCormick & Schmidt's in Bethesda
7401 Woodmont Avenue
Bethesda, Maryland 20814
1. Welcome/Introductions if there are newcomers (7:00 p.m.) - Who you are, where you're from, and when and why you discovered Manager Tools.
2. Update from last meet-up (7:15) - Have you overcome any of the challenges you mentioned in the last meeting? How did you do it and what was the outcome?
3. Your most powerful manager tool(s) (8:00 p.m.) - Which tools have been the most successful or effective for you? Why? Are there any that you've tried that haven't worked?
4. Adjourn (9:00 p.m. or whenever).
There's also talk about setting up a tee-time or two for area golfers. I am a member of Hobbits Glen in Columbia, MD and could probably get people on with guest passes, but I am willing to play pretty much anywhere.
BJ - Count me in except... I am out on vacation 6/17-6/26, any other time window is good for me.
Later Part of June for Me:
The latter part of June works better for me. In fact any time after June 19th would work. I like the idea of golfing too. Anywhere is fine. I love spending an evening with the Baltimore/D.C. Meet-up Crew!
I'm interested. I'm free most evenings with the exception of Wednesdays.
Time for Meet-Up
Let's shoot for Tuesday, June 28. Please let me know if you can make that date; if too few people can, I'll switch it to June 30.
As far as golf, perhaps we can add that to the agenda. I'm a member of Hobbits Glen in Columbia and may be able to secure a nice discount for guests (especially if I bring a number of them).
I have not heard whether people can make the 28th, so I'm going to switch it to the 30th. Please RSVP by Tuesday; if too few people reply, then we'll try again in July.
can't make it
Looks like I can't make it those dates.
I'm working OT to get a project out the door July 6.
Will miss the excellent company. Catch you next time.
Too few people replied, so we'll not meet this month. Perhaps we can get together in July.
New to the area
Hello Managers. I just moved to the area to take on a new position and would be interested in joining in. Is this still being considered?
July's gotten too busy for me, so I'm going to start a new thread for August. I have it on good authority that Mike Auzenne would be able to make it in August, so let's do it!
Yes, let's do it. My
Yes, let's do it. My calendar has changed a bit; I'm on business travel the 16th through the 25th. Hopefully, we can avoid those dates.
Looking forward to it! I have a story to share about the last DC meet-up (that I didn't attend). If you're nice enough to me, I'll share my (embarassing) story. ;-)
Assuming, of course, if
Assuming, of course, if everyone's willing to honor our meet-up Vegas Rule. ;-)
