 Hello to Everyone in, near, close to or sort of near Seattle Washington,

     Is anyone interested in forming a meetUp group in the Seattle Washington area? I'm new to managing and would greatly enjoy and benefit from the insight and guidance of how others deal with the the routine of being (or trying to be) effective on a day-to-day basis.

    Thank you for reading and considering this - I hope to hear from all of you soon

 I tried a Portland one while ago, with no response.  Maybe we could meet up somewhere around Centralia...

I will be moving to Seattle from Beijing in June. I'm willing to meet up with Seattle-area MT listeners. We just need 2 to start! I'll PM you with my contact info.

I just moved from Chicago and am willing to help organize a Seattle meetup. I participated in a meetup in Milwaukee and worked to get one going to CHI, so would love to meet with other MT managers in the area. When should we have our first meeting?

 Hi, 

Although I have been in management for a few years, I am new to MT. If you get a meet up group started, I would be interested in participating. The tools and podcasts have been a great resource to me. 

Thanks, 

Karen

 I am in the middle of end of year reviews, the last week in April would work better for me. I work in the Bothell area. Ideas about where to meet?

Although not a Seattle native, I'll be in Seattle the end of April. If the meet-up happens the week of April 22nd, I'd love to attend.

Would be. Lot of fun!

Mike

End of April works for me and I can make the 22nd work to include Mike. I am living in Woodinville but work downtown. I am willing to meet anywhere. Since I am new to the area, Karen or others do you have any recommendations ?

 

Cheers,

 

Scott

 Glad I noticed this activity in the newsletter -- I would love to participate in something like this. I'm actually doing the MT conference on April 16-17. I could support April 22, 24, or 26 (or possibly the 25th). I work in Redmond and live in Kirkland, so an Eastside locale would be easiest for me.

April 22nd can work.
I would love an opportunity to have a meet-up in the area since the last one failed to manifest.

Eastside is best, free parking, but there are several places in Seattle that work too.
I attend a networking event every month at the Citrus in Seattle.
On the Eastside there are several places too. We could meet at the Tap House Grill in Bellevue.

Let us know.

 Tap House works for me. Monday night should be fairly quiet too.

 What time?

goetzka's picture

 Monday April 22 at the Bellevue Taphouse is good with me. I can make it any time after 5.

Looking forward to it!

Karen

 Should we say 5:30 to give folks enough time to commute? 

Cheers,

Scott

 I am running a bit late as well

Smacquarrie's picture

It was great to meet everyone who showed up last night. I look forward to doing more of these in the coming months.

If we can get a get a firm number of people who will attend next month, I will try to reserve a table for us instead of relying on there being room in the bar area.

 

Thank you Mike for extending your stay and joining/hosting us last night.

I know that we have many more evenings of great conversation ahead of us.

Mac

 I couldn't attend yesterday. Hope it went well.

I've already put July 17 on my calendar. Looks like I can do that one.

And I'll definitely be up to 4 poker chips by then...

Brian,
We missed you but it was still a good time for the two of us who could make.
Looking forward to seeing everyone next month.

Mac

PS: How is the homework coming?

Smacquarrie's picture

I am getting ready to make the reservation for this.

Please contact me privately or sign up on Eventbrite if you plan to attend so I know how many to make the reservation for.

We are averaging about 5-6 people so far.

The conference call notice just came out. It is the same time as our meetup was scheduled for (July 17 at 5pm Pacific).

Does anyone besides me attend the Licensee calls?

Brian

Smacquarrie's picture

As a non-liscensee (currently saving up for the interviewing series), I don't know how long these last.

We can either cancel or you folks can show-up when ever you get done with the call if interested.
Mac

Sorry I missed out on the meeting in June, private life got really busy as the family is getting ready to go for vacation.

I am looking forward to join on the 17th of July or should we choose to move it I am fine with that as well.

Cheers

Kenneth
