Thank you & a call for suggestions…

March 2, 2009

First, on behalf of Ian, Joel (who was unable to be with us today) and myself, I want to thank all 45 of you who joined us at Founder’s!  Ian and I were completely blown away by the attendance, the conversation and enthusiasm that each of you brought.  This confirms what we’ve suspected all along:  Grand Rapids is a thriving, active community with a lot of forward-thinking bright individuals.

Second, as great as Founder’s is, we decided it is not ideal for conversation, especially with a group of our size.  We would love to hear suggestions for future meeting spaces.  The ideal location would be somewhere relatively quiet with at least a somewhat-private seating area, with the ability to hold 60+ comfortably.

And last, if you haven’t already, check out our spot on Google Moderator.  Be sure to submit or vote on a topic you’d like to hear addressed and discussed at the next meeting.

Great meeting you all, and can’t wait to see everyone on 3/26 (details to follow). Look for a summary and recap of this week’s discussion here soon!
