Kerrie's Blog: Summer MeetUp Slideshow

Summer MeetUp Slideshow

We had such a fantastic group of 'Rainers make it out for a MeetUp in their area this time around.  Over 200 of you got together to smile, relax and catch up with one another.

To all the hosts and attendees....THANK YOU!!!  You're keeping the wonderful spirit of ActiveRain alive and well.  We are a strong united bunch that can do ANYTHING!

Summer meet-ups were terrific as usual this year Kerrie!  On to the holiday ones :)!!

Everyone looks like they are enjoying themselves.  I love the meet ups.  Meeting people that you have exchanged comments helps to confirm that Rainers are fun people.

How fun! I had no idea that active rain had a meet-up group. I'll have to check out to see if my local area has a group.

I was so bummed that I couldn't make it to one near me or host one with the regulars we've had in the past.  Bad timing with Labor Day weekend and the start of school.....just too much going on to get it in.  But now that I'm back in the loop, hopefully the next one will work out!

Kerrie, loved the meet-ups but my favorite was the big NYC one with Roger I attended, however not pictured.

The real value of getting out of the office and meeting other like minded professionals is that it allows you to grow.  Knowing your colleagues beyond your own agency gives you insight and information that you might never have gotten without this opportunity.  Ya,Rain!

              Thanks so much for taking the time to do this! It is so cute! I too feel like their other comments there is not quite anything like the Active Rain platform. I have enjoyed talking to people on the phone and online and actually meeting one. I hope to meet many more rainers. Have a wonderful weekend!
