Monday, July 25, 2011 Meeting Announcement

Greetings everyone!

Our next meeting is this coming Monday, July 25. We have some special speakers for this evening and you surely won't want to miss this meeting. A special "Consortium" of small engineering businesses will be in town from across the country, all of which have been started by entrepreneur consulting engineers! Each one's founder will be getting up to tell a little story about how their company was started and how it has grown. There will be some great advice and interesting stories delivered this evening. In addition, some of these companies have immediate consulting opportunities. So please be there as it will be a must attend event!

Unfortunately, the Grand Rapids Brewing Company has gone out of business, so we are meeting instead in the back room of Seoul Garden on 28th Street in front of Woodland Mall. The format of the evening will be as follows:

6:00pm - Dinner at Seoul Garden (3321 28th St SE, in front of Woodland Mall)
7:30pm - Meeting at DornerWorks - (NW corner of Lake Eastbrook Blvd & Camelot)
