San Francisco Bay Area MeetUp: How did it go?

The San Francisco Bay Area Activerain MeetUp happened yesterday afternoon at The Elephant Bar in Fremont, California.  We had 17 people show up representing every region in the area and a mix of real estate agents and finance people.  Since many in attendance had already spoken on the phone, commented online, or shared emails at some point in the past the event felt a bit like meeting old friends.  It was a great chance to build relationships, network, and share thoughts and ideas on a wide range of topics.

Our attendees included:

  • Wende Schoof
  • Antonio Cardenas
  • Anja Karstens
  • Karen Levine
  • Kathleen Daniels
  • Karen Crowson
  • Mike Bell
  • Rhonda Fee
  • Vicky Nagy
  • Chris Eckert
  • Pacita Dimacali
  • Evelyn Kennedy
  • John Scott
  • Sophia Lin
  • Carla Dimond
  • David Ames
  • Bryan Robertson

This event was a rousing success with substantial help from Karen Crowson and Kathleen Daniels who invited several of the people in attendance.  The feedback from everyone seemed very positive so I'm sure the next event will have even more people.  David Ames offered to host at his house so if we can get 50-60 people for the next event, that'll be great! :)

What I like the most about this event is it gets us from online social networking to "real life networking".  I'd be really happy doing business with everyone I met today.  That feeling comes from meeting them in person.  In my opinion, events like this should happen at least twice a year so we can keep these connections going.  Building better personal relationships will make the Activerain experience an even better one that it already is.

I'm looking forward to the next event.  I hope all the other MeetUps had the same success our did.  Good job Kerrie for coordinating all these!
