We didn’t get one of these updates out last week with everything going on, so we’ve got a lot to get to this time around. The last couple episodes of our weekly live broadcast. A whole bunch of blog entries. We’ve got not one but two in-person networking events taking place this month…and in fact, we’ve got them scheduled out into June that way.
So let’s dive right into some details and get things rolling…
The first is this Wednesday, April 1st (and yes, we realize this is “us”, but no, this isn’t an April’s Fools Day joke), and it’ll be at Firebird Tavern downtown…and yes, you read that right, it takes place on a Wednesday this time.
Same usual start time at 5pm, and we’ll be upstairs in the private room. Looking forward to seeing everyone there as we have our first post-Pink Slip Party event, and start on this experiment.
Details on all of our events can be found here on the site – http://www.itinthed.com/meet/, on our Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/ITinTheD, or in our Meetup group – http://www.meetup.com/ITintheD/
Obviously, that’ll be one of the topics of conversation that we hit on during tonight’s live broadcast. Mics go live at 9pm like always, and we’ve got some great guests and conversations lined up.
So join us by listening live from 9pm to 11pm, and then hit us up by calling 313.462.0107 or firing up Twitter and hitting @ITintheD during the show. We love audience participation, so come along and play with us! Not sure how to listen live? We’ve got instructions for you over here: http://www.itinthed.com/listen/how-to-listen/.
