Regional Chapters

Based on your input, we're hosting our MEA MIDATL chapter-wide meetup in Washington, DC during Cherry Blossom season, and hope you will join us there! Please RSVP by 3/1 and pay in advance at the link below so we can plan properly with the restaurant

Theme: Friendship as a Practice

On our recent chapters Zoom call with Chip Conley, he spoke about the importance of community for everyone (as we age), and his efforts to build his own community through what he called "Friendship as a Practice". He emphasized that it was an intentional, active effort to build new friendships. We thought this was a good theme for our meetup, with the event offering an opportunity to build friendships with other chapter members as we come together.

TEX/OK
TEXAS/OK Chapter Event: Austin Gathering Group Hike
Regional Chapters

It was wonderful to see Amanda, Seth, Yasmin, Tim, Pam, Scott, Maura, Tim and Ellen at the Blue Norther meetup on Jan 21. We participated in circle and quickly heard a theme of community being the glue of MEA. Seth led his first workshop in Baja the week prior and shared the magic of being on campus to inspire those who have experienced MEA virtually so far (all are great, though in-person is an experience like no other).

Yasmin suggested the next MEA Austin gathering be a group hike to get out to enjoy nature with our compadres. Please save the date for the afternoon of March 23 (Saturday). We discussed Enchanted Rock being a great location (~50mins west of Austin) and I am waiting to hear back from Texas Parks on group rate for passes. Please RSVP (DM me) by Feb 17 so we have the right headcount for passes. Please let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing many more smiling faces soon!

Kind Regards,

Teri Kelly
