Webgrrls NYC Networking Meeting
Event date: March 12 2008
Posted by: Kristin Vincent
It was a full house as NYC Webgrrls geared up for a productive and fruitful
2008 with our first formal networking meeting of the year.
It was great to see the regulars and great to meet the newcomers who joined us for the first time.

As always, in her welcome message, Nelly Yusupova, the NYC Webgrrls chapter leader, set the tone for the evening...and told of the prizes that were to be raffled at the end of the evening.

The environment was friendly, relaxed, warm and supportive as we went around the very large circle and each of us took the opportunity to introduce ourselves expressing what each of us does and what we need, offering jobs and looking for clients.

Bill Fischer, of AXA Advisors and our sponsor, started us off and offered some insights about the importance of planning  and mapping out your financial future. Bill works with a number of Webgrrls members and offers free consultations.

As we went around the room, it became more and more apparent that we were in for a special evening as there were so many with so many different backgrounds. The mix included business owners, marketing people, techies, designers, a newspaper owner, and many more.

It was the perfect night to join us because Nelly Yusupova, the chapter leader, raffled off passes to three conferences. Here are the people who won the drawings:
 
AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2008: Julian Alexander
BlogHer Business '08: Elke Nominikat
Strategies for Achieving Double-Digit Growth: Alexandra Reiher and Jennifer Shaw
 
Congratulations to the lucky winners!

We look forward to seeing you on April 16....RSVP Now>>
