About this event

Badging and RSVP policy: 

Please help us with badging and sign-up for this Meetup with your full name by answering the question during RSVP. That way we can print out the badges ahead of time and speed up the sign-in process.  Thanks! 

We would also like to reiterate our RSVP policy: If you are on the waitlist and we think the event venue will be at or close to capacity you will have to wait until 6:45 before we allow you into the room. If you are RVSPed we will keep your spot available until 15 minutes before the announcements, after that your spot will be given to someone present on the waitlist. If the room is filled at anytime earlier, we will deny entrance.
