Happy Winter Solstice!

This update is all about announcing our new line-up for 2017.

The Steering Committee has been putting in tons of hours and passion working on a way-cool game plan for next year.   
Plus, it's time to start planning your calendar and getting some of those goals headed in the right direction.  

We want to be part of your planning and help you throughout the year.    

And we can hardly stand it any more - so here we go.
Mixing it up for our Members
More events.  More locations.  More content.

​We will continue offering free Meet-Ups to our members, but will increase the number of events, the content, the formats, and flex our locations a bit.  

Additionally, we will be offering more in-depth paid workshops later in the year… more info on that later.  
This year we will be organizing all of our content and events around a THEME related to growing successful maker businesses here in Arizona.
