Kerrie's Blog: MeetUps and Holiday Cheer

MeetUps and Holiday Cheer

It's the most wonderful time of year!  Break out the eggnog, wear your favorite reindeer sweater and get ready for round 2 of AR MeetUps!

This past September we had over 300 members gathering around the country, Canada too, sharing, laughing and connecting!  A grand time was had and many were excited and asking for the next one. 

We all spend so many hours in the 'Rain getting to know one another and learning from each other.  The MeetUps take that relationship, add a scoop of sugar and a pinch of salt and push it to the next level by putting a face, hug or handshake to it.  Networking, learning and sharing are basic fundamentals of AR.  Something special happens when you exercise these in person.  To understand you must attend a MeetUp and see for yourself. 

MeetUps will happen in a restaurant, lounge or another venue in your area; a relaxed environment to host AR members, friends and colleagues.  Anybody involved in the real estate community is invited and urged to attend.  Everyone is on their own for food and drinks so the host is not asked of too much except organizing.  

With RainCamp kicking off December 14th, AR MeetUps will happen anytime between December 12th through the 16th.  I'll even put 1000 points in your stocking if you attend!  Let's get together and share how to make 2012 a wildly successful year!

All members interested in hosting please email kerrie@activerain.com the venue name, address and date/time. A separate post will go out with all MeetUp locations.  Once the MeetUps are complete, I'll ask the hosts to please email the usernames of all attendees and pictures too!  I'd like to compile another slide-show to share with the AR Community.

I know many are so busy with the holidays and other commitments but this is very important and I ask you to do your very best to attend.  Our Community deserves a get together here and there and I'm depending upon you to make this dream a reality.

Let it Rain, Let it Snow, Let's Get Together!!

Trivia question...did you know where and when the first actual meet up for Ar ever was?

I can tell you... since I was there and actually planned it with a few others. TLW,BlogBoy,myself and a few others who aren't active on the network were there...such as Ann Cummings,Teri Eisner,Sharon Sims,Coleen Kulikowski,Nick the appraiser...if you ever saw TLW's picture where she is standing in a fountain...then you can understand what I'm talking about. 2006-07 in Celebration FL

I would love to put a meetup together on the NC Coast, but wonder how many folks would make it.....  Of course, we had a meetup over the summer (unofficial) and had about a dozen ...

Kathleen Daniels offered to set one up in Emeryville Dec 13. I am there. The festive mood, shoppers; hustle and bustle, and array of after meet-up shopping opportunities (as well as an Apple Store) are drawing me in.

Let's do it!

Dang you guys....I'm sincerely impressed.  I knew you'd realize the importance of making time for your AR family too!  We all get so busy this time of year especially but it is SO IMPORTANT to get together!

I thank you to all who have so graciously volunteered to host and emailed me the information.  I'm compiling a post with all locations. 

If there isn't one in your neighborhood you should host!  If one or five or fifty people come out it's a success!  Just email me the date/time and venue and I'll add you to the list.  Be sure to blog about your MeetUp on your own as well, let's get this information in front of as many eyes as possible!

Hi Kerrie,

It sounds great.

Last time there were a couple of them in SoCal. One was in Newport with Stacey Smith (see above) and someone else hosting, and another in Santa Monica with Kim and Kristine Halverson hosting. I could not do the 70 mi drive to Newport that day as I ran out of day. I was under the impression Newport was the only one, totally unaware of the one in Santa Monica on Sept 8th 11, so I missed it.

IF, there is one here in Santa Monica again, I’ll be able to catch it.

Hey Westchester/Fairfield counties (and surrounding areas of NYC, Rockland, Putnam)

Phil Faranda & I are organizing one in Westchester on Tuesday 12/13 at 7pm at Uno's in White Plains - 14 Martine Ave.  (You can park for free at The Seasons at 4 Martine Ave...just get ticket and have Uno's validate).  this is right off Exit 5 on 287...we chose this to avoid holiday traffic at the mall at Exit 8.  Also, for any in NYC, you can take train - it's 2 blocks from train station.

Dagny will have hers on Thurs at 4pm in Wilton. 

Phil & I intend to go to both.  We wanted to make sure we could gather everyone in Westchester area.
