Default Anyone interested in a Meetup group in San Francisco?

Hi Outpost!

I just moved to Pacifica from Santa Cruz and have been trying to find a actuarial job in San Francisco but have had no success. I want to try and start a group of actuaries, actuarial candidates, and anyone who is interested in pursuing a career as an actuary with the goal of connecting/networking and providing advice. I am posting here to see if there is anyone in the area who would be interested. Please reply if you have any thoughts on the matter, thanks.

What do you bring to the table? Are you an interesting person? Good wingman? Make excellent fruit baskets? Good at leveraging synergies?

Bring to the table? I don't know about a fruit basket but I can make a killer bangers and mash! In all honesty though, I think having the leadership, initiative, and confidence to organize and develop a platform for people of similar interests to connect and learn is quite enough to bring to the table considering the situation. And I don't think asking me if i'm a good wingman is appropriate. However, I make a good sidecar buddy.

Depending on when the meetup is, possibly. But unlikely.
