Hi all,

The WA state chapter will meet on Oct 31st from 6:30 - 7:30 PM at the Fairwood Library in Renton, WA. Here are directions to the library: http://www.kcls.org/fairwood/directions.cfm. We will meet in Meeting Room A.

This is your chance to get to know fellow WA state chapter members of IV! If you didn't go to the rally, for whatever reason, this is how you can get involved at a local level. Do come, introduce yourselves, and meet everyone else.

Please make sure all WA state members attend this meeting. This is our first meeting. We want to meet all of the members so that we can better connect and share information that cannot be posted on public forums. We also want members to work together to build a strong local state chapter. We have lots of exciting tasks that we all need to take up, your participation is critical for meeting IV goals. Please act, join and meet with us!

The meeting was awesome, of course we kept food out of the equation to be more focussed and lack to time during a weekday so we did not meet in a food court or a restaurant and decided to meet instead in a library meeting room:). I think the chapter is maturing quickly though.

It was a wonderful brain storming session with ideas to take this chapter forward. We also had everyone wanting to take up tasks and really wanting to do whatever it takes to get this going.I did send the meeting minutes to everyone attended to get their review done. I have also send it to the leadership group. I am very happy with the members who met and the interesting ideas, thoughts and energy that they bring into this chapter.

I will be sending out the meeting minutes to the rest of the state chapter members sometime this weekend once I get the minutes reviewed by the attendees.
I want to thank everyone from IV for making this happen, the constant support from everyone outside this state from core team, the chapter leads and everyone who believed in us. Wanted to thank the members who showed up and the member who could not but really wanted to due to trick or treat or being a weekday and driving distance from Portland. The next meeting will be a weekend, specifically a Saturday to make sure we get maximum members who really want to make a difference!

Yes, Vandana took pictures, will post soon.
