San Francisco Mid Peninsula, California Chapter Interest?

Post by nance » Sun Mar 25, 2018 12:34 pm

Hello,

Are there folks interested in starting a meeting in the San Francisco Mid Peninsula Area?

San Mateo, Belmont, Burlingame, Hillsborough, Millbrae are all nearby.

Testing the interest, then we could start a monthly meeting at a coffee shop first.
Caltrain stations are nearby..

Thanks!

Email me to get on the mailing list for our meetings

I’m in Palo Alto/Mountain View area so it would be nice to have a group closer than San Jose (I haven’t been to those meetings but would definitely check out one closer to me)

East Bay here - if it's walking distance of BART, then maybe.

I just joined - I would attend - Caltrain station good idea. Opinion: More chapters the better. I would imagine having more chapters with some members attending more one regularly would improve the creation and dissemination of information. More ideas to talk about.

I'm interested and would also vote for something close to BART/CalTrain. Sounds like Millbrae may be the way to go?

Millbrae it is!

Closest spot to the Bart/Caltrain State is this drink place:

First meeting Thursday May 3, 6pm.

I can give a quick talk about my experience with brokered CDs, then we can have an open discussion.

Replay or send me a Message if you will attend.

I'm in the Dublin/Pleasanton Area, we just moved from Redwood Shores. Most of my network is still on the Peninsula and I would be happy to do a meetup.

Found this thread too late for the May 3 meeting, but would love to join the next one. Any thoughts when the next meeting might be?
