The local IDSA leadership; Hali Nacdimen and Clinton Denlinger have approached HIVE13 on our interest in hosting a joint meeting. We met again at our open house last weekend, They were favorably impressed and confirmed their interest.
IDSA is the national Industrial Design professional organization. They hold meetings for both internal and external networking.
Together, Clinton and I outlined a plan.
When: Tuesday November 13th from 6:00pm to 9:00 pm or so.
6:00 to 7:30 - Networking, Snacks and Beverages - (IDSA has a budget, HIVE13 contribution tbd)
- Welcome to HIVE13, Who we are, What we do. One of us to speak 10 minutes
- What is IDSA - IDSA leadership to speak 10 minutes
- Guest speaker from MayWeHelp.org 20-30 minutes
MayWeHelp.org is a Cincinnati based volunteer organization that designs and creates unique custom solutions for individuals with special needs to engage in and pursue their passions.
8:30 to 9:30
- Break into small groups for Creative Problem Solving to support a May We Help project, HIVE13 tours and Networking,
Why: Recent local IDSA chapter meetings draw between 80 to 100 industrial designers (think potential HIVE13 members)
HIVE13 members may also be interested in participating in a May We Help project.
MayWeHelp members may wish to join HIVE13 to tap into our capabilities and support their volunteer efforts
Clinton and Hali are discussing the joint meeting with MayWeHelp and will report back this week.
This a great opportunity for HIVE13 to connect.
Let me know your thoughts.
