Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What type of events does the group organize?
Hangouts are typically just a few individuals that get together in a friendly hang out without formalizing an official event. We have quite a few of these throughout the year. It’s usually by invitation for closer friends that end up getting together to share some time together. Many of these hangouts are not domain focused but shop talk is not off the table. They are usually held at a member’s house, cigar lounge or anywhere they choose. Sometimes, our non-local colleagues reach out to us when they going to visit South Florida. Ask a member or organizer when these are held. It’s possible that you could join a small group and make some memories.
Socials are planned events designed to connect with new members or reconnect with existing friends in the domain space. Most socials are free but some have costs. You’ll need to check the event details for more info. The free events are usually held at places where everyone can get their own tab such as restaurants, food halls, breweries, bars or other places where we can meet and have conversations.
Q. What do we look for when organizing an event?
When planning a free event for the SouthFloridaDomainers group, we consider several factors. Our ideal venue would have no admission fee, ample space for our group without requiring a reservation or financial commitment, indoor seating with the option of outdoor seating, affordable food and drinks for everyone to purchase, and an atmosphere that is quiet enough for conversation but lively and energetic. Additionally, we strive to find venues with free parking when possible.
Paid events are evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Past events have included boat cruises on the bay, restaurant outings, Top Golf games, and even concerts. The cost of these events varies based on the type of activity and level of investment required. While some events are more casual and may not require advance notice or a formal announcement, others will be announced with ample time to make a commitment to attend. Regardless of the type of event, we always aim to create a fun and engaging atmosphere where members can connect and share their passion for the domain industry.
