We'd like to hear from you




Hola todos, 

Our mixer yesterday at Original 40 Brewing Company in North Park was a success. Members had the opportunity to meet the new board and provide input for upcoming events they would like us to host.

We want to hear from all our members so we created a quick survey for everyone to fill out. Please take a minute to let us know what you would like us to organize.

Would members benefit from educational panels? Workshops for freelancers? Mixers? Picnic day or hiking day? Volunteering?

Let us know! Email ideas to: nahjsandiego(at)gmail(dot)com.
