It's the start of a new IxDA chapter in Maryland, and the start of a new year; therefore, I think it's only appropriate that we start planning for our first event of the year. I'd like to put out a call out to all our IxDA Frederick members to submit ideas for what our first event should be. To kick things off, I'd like to propose our first event be more of a greet-and-meet to give us all an opportunity to get together and learn about each other. This would also serve as a great time to discuss what each of us would like to get out of this local IxDA chapter and to see how we would like it to grow. My view is that this IxDA Frederick belongs to all the members, so we can make of it what we want - keeping in mind our mission of course.
As IxDA Frederick is the first chapter in Maryland, I believe that it is important to welcome anyone in the Maryland area. Having said that, I am happy to hold events that are most convenient for the majority of our members. If you have some ideas of where our first event can be held please send your ideas. Currently i'd be happy to get together anywhere in the Baltimore, Columbia, Montgomery County and Frederick County areas.
If you can submit ideas by no later than January 11th, we can start continue this thread and discuss our first event.
