ar meetups: 2014 Summertime MeetUps - Can You Host? - 07/02/14 04:26 AM
Break out the flip-flops and sunscreen, it's MeetUp time! Are you ready to hang out with some awesome people again? Maybe you're new to AR but want to get out from behind the computer and relax with some Rainers who know good business.  The time is almost here!
You might be asking what a MeetUp is.  Well, it's an informal get together for members of ActiveRain to hang out and talk business, sports, relationships or whatever floats your boat.  Everyone is on their own for drinks/food; the host is only responsible for choosing a place, date and time.

ar meetups: Springtime MeetUp Success - 2014 - 04/17/14 07:11 AM
We broke the MeetUp record!!  The previous record was 48 MeetUps and this last round brought in over 50 with almost 300 Rainers in attendance!  I cannot express how much this means to me.  The official AR MeetUps began in Fall of 2011 and obviously they are still GOING STRONG!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all the hosts that so graciously volunteered their time and efforts making these happen.  You didn't have to, you could have easily said "I can't I'm too busy, there are not enough hours in the day" but you didn't.  You know how important … (54 comments)

ar meetups: Springtime MeetUps - Can You Host? - 02/12/14 02:06 AM
There may be snow outside your window as you read this, but I wanted to give plenty of time for hosts to get their MeetUp scheduled.
Meeting your virtual friends and colleagues in person usually begins with a smile and embrace.  I've seen it happen a hundred times before and this round should be no different.  Whether business, hobbies or fun is discussed it doesn't matter, the point is to get out from behind the computer and spend some informal, quality time with other Rainers.
MeetUps take place in a restaurant, lounge or other venue of the host's choosing; a relaxed environment … (82 comments)

Hot Cider and Buttered Rums are calling your name!  We live in a world of amazing Rainers who have found the time to set up a MeetUp in their area.  They understand the importance and warm fuzzies that come from being in the same room with other ActiveRain members.
I am still elated from our MeetUp last week in San Francisco.  So many AR Members were in town for NAR and we just had to get together in person.  The room was full of love, hugs and laughs.  Such an amazing, lucky feeling.
Now, it's your turn to feel the spark! … (162 comments)

We couldn't let 2013 roll by without one more round of MeetUps!  I know how hectic the holiday season gets for everyone and sometimes you feel like Gumby getting pulled in 15 different directions.  But there's always time for your ActiveRain Family isn't there?!  (The answer to that question is YES!)
A MeetUp is an informal get together for those interested in connecting and informally hanging out with other ActiveRain members and real estate professionals in their area.  We have members orchestrate MeetUps in their areas so ‘Rainers can get together and feel that live interaction that is so very special. … (71 comments)

ar meetups: A Rainy Seattle Spring MeetUp - 04/10/13 04:26 AM
This morning I rose a bit earlier than usual to head out and meet some friendly faces.  Charles Buell and René Fabre were kind enough to host the Seattle breakfast MeetUp.  We feasted over eggs, coffee and juice while discussing everything AR and beyond.  
Charles was there first getting our tables organized and René was stuck in traffic.  If you think of a typical Seattle day, today fits right in.  Rainy and gray with puddles covering the streets.  Ahhh Seattle...gotta love it.
Mugs of joe and a veggie scramble doused in the green tabasco was my choice this am.  Never … (35 comments)

What a hit!  We had over 30 MeetUps around the country and they were full of smiles and cheer.
Thank you to all the hosts that took the time to put together a hot spot for all to join in on the fun.  And thank you to all the participants that trudged through the rain, snow and sunshine to get to a MeetUp and partake in this one of a kind community love.

ar meetups: Seattle MeetUp Was a Hit Once Again - 12/03/12 06:19 AM
This morning we had the Seattle MeetUp with the regular crew.  We hit up the 14 Carrot Cafe once again and got our day started right; breakfast, cups of java and good people.  
A gray Seattle day was turned into a bright one with the warm 'Rainers gathered around the table.  Many MeetUp groupies as I like to call them were in attendance even with the 8am roll call.  Charlie sure likes to get up early!
I look forward to these quarterly MeetUps, each time they are a different experience and I always feel better for having attended.

What the heck is a MeetUp you ask?  Well, a MeetUp is an informal get together for those interested in connecting and informally hanging out with other ActiveRain members and real estate professionals in their area.  AR used to travel around the country bringing RainCamp to one city at a time and the greatest part was meeting 'Rainers face to face.  Since RainCamp is now done virtually to accommodate larger attendance, … (77 comments)

A MeetUp is an informal get together for those interested in connecting and informally hanging out with other ActiveRain members and real estate professionals in their area.  AR used to travel around the Country bringing RainCamp to one city at a time and the greatest part was finally meeting 'Rainers face to face.  Since RainCamp is now done virtually to accommodate larger attendance, we have members orchestrate MeetUps in their areas so ‘Rainers can still meet and get that live interaction that is so very special.
