Wall-to-Wall Turnout for PM Forum San Francisco

More than 40 marketers from the fields of publishing, law, accounting, consulting, public relations and management consulting filled the private reception room Tuesday night at the trendy Town Hall restaurant in San Francisco. It was the inaugural Kickoff Networking & Cocktail Event of the new PM Forum chapter, and it couldn't have gotten off to a better start.

Chapter Chair Ashley Kanigher of Orrick welcomed the crowd, which gathered a block away from the new Orrick building in the city. Everyone is familiar with the Orrick "O" brand, and their new glass-walled building even has a light well in the center, giving the building an "O" footprint. Let me extend many thanks to Ashley and her highly-efficient staff for organizing a very happy and well-run event.

Nick Gaffney, Regional Director for the Chapter and President of Infinite P.R., spoke as well, telling the crowd that what makes the PM Forum different is its interdisciplinary makeup -- we're not a silo organization -- the Forum attracts marketers from all professions so they can learn each other's best practices and get to know each other.

The SFO chapter will start its educational programs in October. First the chapter will collect strategic-level ideas that appeal to CMOs, and then conduct a Zoomerang online survey to determine which topics are the most compelling. If you came to the kickoff event or if you subscribe to the Forum's free e-mail newsletter, you'll get to vote. Go to www.PMForumNA.org and click Free Newsletter to subscribe.

New PM Forum chapters are popping up like mushrooms! Next stop is Philadelphia, which will have its kickoff Happy Hour at the Pyramid Club on October 13. For more information see http://www.pmforumna.org/pages/events.asp?Action=View&EventID=71.
