Good luck Mike,
Do not get discouraged if it doesn’t instantly get off the ground. Strongly advise settling on a place ASAP and routinely meeting on a monthly basis, same time (ie; 3rd Thursday, 2nd Wednesday etc.) so the guys can pre-schedule it on their datebooks. Also, if a dinner meeting -find a place where each person can order off menu and pay own bill. Nothing is as discouraging for a guy with a burger taste who drinks coke having to “chip in” way more because of only one bill and some of the guys are eating filet and drinking Anchor Steam. Always schedule some type of presentation, even if it is a roundtable discussion of an applicable topic. Give me a call if you want to bounce around ideas.
