Interested in Drupal shop owner/manager meetup?

Hi,

I run a 5-person Drupal shop headquartered in Portland. We've been in business 20 years and have been focused on Drupal since 2009.

I would love to get to know and network with other Drupal shop CEOs and managers in this area.

Would anyone be interested in getting together from time to time? In addition to just meeting others who do my same type of job, my objectives are to share lessons learned, war stories, ideas about how to sell/market, manage teams, promote Drupal, contribute to the Drupal community, etc.
