TIME TO PARTY !
Cameron Sinclair, founder of AFH, is making a West Coast swing for a couple of events the end of this month, one of which will result in the official announcement of the organization’s next design competition at an event hosted at Foreign Cinema. Here is a recent newsletter detailing those engagements and some of AFH’s other current events. Check it out.
Better though is that Cameron is going to be hosting an AFH.SF Meetup Party! at his hotel. Thanks to Sarah Manning for inspiring this. It will be a great opportunity for everyone to meet Cameron and other scattered members of our local chapter, as well as introduce new people who may want to get more involved here in the Bay Area. I am sure Cameron will have lots to tell about the org's development, and help us to strategize about our goals and efforts, as well as learn about the NY chapter's recent progress and approach. Please RSVP with Cameron if you plan to attend (firstname.lastname@example.org). Any other questions contact me (email@example.com).
