ActiveRain 2013 Winter MeetUp Slideshow

Services for Real Estate Pros with ActiveRain, Community Manager

Well pass the eggnog and tickle my nose pink...what a fabulous community we have!

Our 2013 Winter MeetUps consisted of 44 MeetUps around the country with over 300 Rainers in attendance!  I understand there are so many things pulling you in different directions this time of year; and yet you still managed to carve out the time to hang out with some of your buddies.

MeetUps have been such a success that you all were talked about, and pictured, in our company-wide all hands meeting yesterday.  A huge applause roared from over 300 people admiring the kindhearted souls of ActiveRain Members.  I was jumping and cheering and giving a little "Arsenio Hall" whoop whoop myself.

Thank you to the hosts who took the initiative to bring a MeetUp to your city; without you the laughs, hugs and fun wouldn't have been possible.  Thank you to all the attendees that came out and made these MeetUps a priority.  I heard fabulous feedback from old and new members.  Many of the new members simply RAVED about the advice and tips the older members gave.  Warms my heart!

Please enjoy this slideshow, our community is strong and full of greatness.

Nice slide show! It's fun to see how many people made time to get to know their Active Rain comrades better. Our meet up in San Jose was great.

Looks like a lot of folks had a fun time!  Unfortunately we weren't able to make our local meet up, but we'll probably host again next time.

Our Boston Area Meetup was scheduled during a time I was in a conference. Fortunately it was in a hotel not more than 2 miles than the restaurant. I was thrilled to be able to do both. I would have loved to stay longer. Thanks Praful
