Northern Virginia Chapter's November 2018 Meeting

Presentation Title: What do you have to say?

Are you familiar with the Japanese style for concise and fast-paced presentations called Pecha Kucha? In Japanese, it means ‘chatter’!

In Pecha Kucha, one uses a short time ‘speaking to inform, persuade, inspire, motivate, or to build good will or to present a new idea or product.” Join the Northern Virginia chapter for a modified version of a Pecha Kucha! 

What will you chatter about?  Our members and guests can:

  • Brag about themselves (or their kids or spouse or favorite team),
  • Promote their product or business,
  • Vent about the awful campaign nonsense we've endured for the past month,
  • Tell us what CSI needs to do to suit their interests, or maybe
  • Ask questions of the audience to learn how you fit in.

You may use slides to enhance your topic – if you do, bring them on a flash drive. We welcome any interested person to have the floor for 3 minutes and 20 seconds, maximum!

The objective is to have fun, get to know people, find new connections you have with people you’ve known for a short or a long time, and to get to know new faces in the crowd.  After all, CSI is about communication among the many disciplines and professionals in the industry!

We’ll gather Wednesday, November 14th at our usual spot so join us next week:

1 – REGISTER in advance (at the door will work also)
2 – SELECT your topic
3 – COPY images to a flash drive (if using) for use at the event
4 – REHEARSE once, or as much as you feel you need to, but remember, this is meant to be casual
Dinner – Mexican Style Dinner Buffet
Mixed Green Salad
Spanish rice
Chicken Fajitas with Peppers, Onion, Warm Flour Tortillas
Guacamole, Salsa, American cheese and Sour Cream with Corn Tortilla Chips
Chef's choice of dessert

Schedule: 6-6:30 pm - Social hour / 6:30-7:15 pm – Buffet Dinner / 7:15-8:15 pm – Presentations / 8:15-8:30 pm - Wrap-Up
