Would love to join up and help out if I can, would be nice to get the LA CGT gang back together as the CGS gang, especially with so much 'stuff' going on here.

I'm a bit closer this time...but really, we should try to aim at weekends because I'm swamped on the weekdays. I always get frustrated when Gnomon arrange meetings and events on Thursdays. GAh!

peace,

Lu

It would definitely be cool to get us all together again. I guess through here we can see who is REALLY interested and who is not.

Weekends would probably be the most viable thing to do since most of us have plenty to do during the week. I hear ya about Gnomon, although I have to admit... I have skipped once or twice to attend those are just fun! Plus free beer and pizza is always good!

good to see you onboard

For starters It would help to designate a place to meet with times.
Like Lu mentioned, weekends are best. What's key to the success of any group is scheduling the amount of times for members to meet i.e. Meet quarterly, once a month, etc.
Whomever heads it up, needs to be the most commited to maintain communications and scheduling and be there at every meeting. Secondly, generating interest is all about what the topics are. Is it just a get together for pizza and beer or are these idea, resource, or industry sessions?

If it gets past the planning stage, I would do it in a heartbeat.

i am thinking only the people organizing the chapters have "responsabilities" which would include keeping in touch, making the calls and respective legwork, gathering contact info,... etc etc etc. The members responsability would probably be to participate and to be involved.

Based on past experience I believe 4 times a year (to start) is more than enough AND hard enough. Considering schedules and what not. So, based on that, we should think every 3 months. Maybe something like 2 socials and 2 industry related. As in lectures, meet and greets, q&a's, company reel showcases etc etc etc.

mau.

Which meet was that?

From time to time, I visit the LA LW user group meeting, but it's not in Santa Monica...

Oh... if I were smarter, I would have clicked the link.

(For the record, I read this post in email. It's easy to ignore links in email because the emailed posts generate a lot more...)

well, first of all we should start figuring out the dates and a place to meet.

since it took a very long time for a party, why don't we start suggesting now. I think most of us will agree that hollywood is good. OR we can rotate between the west side and hollywood.

suggestions??

mauricio.
