Meetup is an online site that facilitates offline group meetings in various localities around the world. The web site allows members to find and join groups unified by common interest, such as books, gender, health, pets, careers or hobbies. Users enter their ZIP code or their city and the topic they want to meet about, and the website helps navigate them to the correct group to join.
I recently decided to create, a Meetup group, North Austin Influencers so that members can exchange ideas, learn through educational workshops, and use their expertise in different fields to enhance leadership skills while discovering my area of town. This group is for individuals to continue learning in their profession or passions through connection building, self-improvement, using strategies for success, and experience sharing.
This group will offer individuals an opportunity to enhance their leadership skills by building relationships with like-minded individuals through:
• once a month mixers in North Austin (including Pflugerville & Round Rock)
• development workshops and/or series
• information on other leadership opportunities in the area
Our mission is to bring people together to exchange ideas, learn through educational workshops and mixers using the expertise of top industry professionals while providing marketing opportunities to businesses who host Meet-ups.
The first monthly Networking Mixer is on July 18th at Casa Chapala on Anderson Ln. COST: $10 prepaid or $15 at the door which includes Nacho bar and Tequila Trivia. Meet business professionals and executives, business owners and entrepreneurs from a diverse group of industries. The event hashtag is #Influencers
We look forward to seeing you at Casa Chapala, Home to Austin Tequila Society, a community of tequila aficionados and lovers-of-agave who gather to enjoy tequila in its many forms. The Society’s mission is to promote the enjoyment of tequila as a sophisticated sipping spirit, as well as a delicious base to traditional cocktails (Margarita, Mexican Martini, etc.).
Locally produced Spicy Mama Salsa, the salsa that “gives back”, made with fresh fire roasted chilies, all natural ingredients, gluten free, and fat free will be available for tasting and purchase. 30% percent of profit goes right back into the Austin Community to help EDUCATE, EMPOWER & SERVE the inner city community work through LaunchPad’s youth programs.
