I was sitting around blogging earlier and thinking about different networks of professionals that meet and provide relevant information to their members. It got me wondering; has anyone considered having a local meeting once a month or so open to the Manager Tools members that are in their area?
I live in Raleigh, NC, and I was wondering about the feasability of meeting once monthly to meet up with local MTers to discuss stuff that has been podcast on, etc. From that we could discuss the information and add relevant personal/professional experiences to clarify and sharpen the concepts we deal with here.
The reason that this was brought to mind is that, in my opinion, a Manager Tools listeners are naturally inclined to trying to learn more and grow in our careers. What better place to meet and learn from each other?
Anyways, just figured I would drop a note and see what the rest of you thought. Perhaps the idea is a bit far fetched, but I wouldn't mind spending a Saturday morning a month cementing this stuff and adding to it.
*Note - I did a search and didn't find any more information on this. If its not new, please inform me of that.
