DRMA Meet Ups help you, or your key employees, build your peer network with members who are interested in the same topic area, so that you can learn from them and strengthen your business. Meet Ups are small discussion groups, designed to stimulate dialogue in a casual, comfortable atmosphere. Ask questions, get advice, and share your experiences with fellow members. (This is not a sales pitch opportunity.) They are FREE and for members only.
