In our first planning meeting for SMCDSM, the group that was there discussed having the first official event take place late in January. Due to scheduling, the holidays, and the new year, it doesn't necessarily look like we're going to have a true event ready to make that date.
However, what if we made our first event a kickoff or launch party for the chapter? Rather than trying to nail down the programming, could we instead use the first event as a networking gathering with a brief intro to SMCDSM and what purpose the club will serve?
There are still some details that would have to be ironed out, but this could take a little pressure off and allow us to get SMCDSM out into the open for everyone else.
