Thanks to everyone who came out to our brand new meeting location at the Event Space at Genius. We moved to a roomier spot to accommodate the ever-growing membership at NKD—and the turnout definitely did justice to the bigger digs.
This February meeting saw a lot of newbies (who attended a 6:30pm orientation for first-timers) and even more returning members who got to participate in the democratic process by voting on bylaws and new NKD leadership.
