I suggest it would be great if we could hold monthly socials in the evening... and also monthly educational events with interesting guest speakers... perhaps at a luncheon.

Thanks Josephine. Definitely will hold the educational events with interesting guest speakers. I'm eager to see what kind of experience and expertise we have amongst us and to craft a venue for those who can speak/teach to share with us. As an official Social Media Club, we'll be able to attract social media "names" from other places who can inspire and amaze us, too.
