IPNE Branch Meetups

In April, we re-launched our weekly Thursday evening coffee hour at the Kickstand Cafe, Arlington. If you are the first to arrive, please put up some kind of sign on the table so other members can find you. 

This is an informal drop-in, so it's best to find a buddy beforehand who's going (see registration list). These informal gatherings are on Thursdays at the Kickstand Cafe in Arlington, Massachusetts. Group size at this venue is limited to about 15, so come early!

Contact or call 339-368-5656 for answers to any questions, more information, or to suggest a topic, speaker, or to request IPNE materials. 

At the Metro Boston Branch monthly meetups, we have a presentation by a speaker or panel, generally on the last Saturday morning of each month at HF Group at 100 Cambridge Street in Charlestown, MA, the business location of board member Paul Parisi. Check our Events page before attending, for location and time changes.
