activerain meetups: ActiveRain 2013 Winter MeetUp Slideshow - 12/12/13 04:01 PM
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. … (75 comments)

activerain meetups: Springtime MeetUps 2013 - 03/07/13 12:50 PM
 

The birds have begun to chirp and on my latest walk with Henry we noticed the spring bulbs starting to push through the winter ground.  Spring is coming which means there is no better time to dust off those winter blues and get out there to mingle with your local Rainers.
Meeting your virtual friends and colleagues in person usually begins with a smile and embrace.  I've seen it happen a hundred times before and this round should be no different.  Whether business, hobbies or fun is discussed it doesn't matter, the point is to get out from behind the … (90 comments)

Charlie and Rene were pretty fly to set up the Seattle MeetUp.  14 'Rainers showed up for an early breakfast at the 14 Carrot Cafe.  Greeted with smiles, hugs and introductions to the new faces was so cool.  
Charles Buell is an angel.  Period.Rene Fabre always cheery and so very kind.Maureen Fukumoto came all the way from the beautiful island of Oahu!  Tammy Emineth and her hubby took the time to join us even though they have just moved back to WA.  Lucky us!Adrian Willanger made it after he had a "table for one" moment at the other 14 Carrot … (10 comments)

activerain meetups: Summer MeetUps are Here Again! - 08/13/12 11:35 AM
MeetUp Time is Here Again!!

A MeetUp is an informal get together for those interested in connecting and informally hanging out with other ActiveRain members and real estate professionals in their area.  AR used to travel around the Country bringing RainCamp to one city at a time and the greatest part was finally meeting 'Rainers face to face.  Since RainCamp is now done virtually to accommodate larger attendance, we have members orchestrate MeetUps in their areas so ‘Rainers can still meet and get that live interaction that is so very special.
 
With RainCamp taking place August 30th, this round … (73 comments)

It's the most wonderful time of year!  Break out the eggnog, wear your favorite reindeer sweater and get ready for round 2 of AR MeetUps!
This past September we had over 300 members gathering around the country, Canada too, sharing, laughing and connecting!  A grand time was had and many were excited and asking for the next one. 
We all spend so many hours in the 'Rain getting to know one another and learning from each other.  The MeetUps take that relationship, add a scoop of sugar and a pinch of salt and push it to the next level by … (111 comments)

activerain meetups: MeetUp Successes!!! - 09/16/11 04:23 PM
I am beyond elated, joyful, moved, and grateful for all of you that attended a MeetUp in your area.  The best part of the old RainCamps was getting to meet you face to face and embed that feeling.  When I get a call or email from one of you that I have personally met, it brings me back.  And that my friends is why the MeetUps are so very, very important.  Whether 4 or 40 people showed up I knew it would be a success!
Many of you thought more members would have come out; and you still expressed having … (80 comments)
