I'm sure there's a lot of people around the area but there's also people here who are glad to help and I'm sure you can PM them with any questions/concerns you have. Not too sure about the rest. Sounds like a question for @CarolineS
My question is more around meeting in person with the other groups and being more tight-knit. When I was a member of the Google group we meant monthly to go over planned items, but also bi-monthly for hosted events with partners that would have a customer and partner-led panel. It introduced a lot of key vendor partnerships we utilized.
It would be great to partner with Meraki and lead some of these. I can think of some great ones around Meraki-retail or Meraki and hotel et cetera.
I'm in Detroit btw if anyone wants to DM and start this going!
