First Meeting

So the first orientation meeting for GDI, Inc. before the W&L student body and the Roanoke Times, went smoothly and according to plan. Student turnout was promising, I believe that we have a great group of individuals biting at the bit to get involved. For anyone who happens to be in that category, I will be contacting you sometime this weekend to arrange a smaller meeting next week. At that point I will start getting ya'll going on getting up to speed on GDI, and beginning projects yourself.

Secondly, I have had numerous individuals express regret that they could not make the meeting last night; and I believe that we are in a position to continue advertising and get a good turnout at a second meeting. Therefore, I will be presenting the same orientation material a second time this coming week for anyone who wanted to make it last night, but couldnt.

So this week has been busy again at GDI, Inc.

Over break I worked on a fairly extensive business plan to formalize the concept of GDI, Inc. This Monday, the board of directors sat down to discuss and edit it.

I have spent a fair amount of time this week on designing a preliminary website for GDI, Inc. You can view it here: . I have also linked it to this blog, so perhaps we will get some more traffic following the progress we are making.

Tonight, Wednesday March 3rd, at 7pm I will be giving a formal presentation for W&L students interested in becoming a part of the GDI Team. I am expecting a fairly good turnout of students, which is exciting because we need to expand our team to continue growing. As well, a reporter from the Roanoke Times will be here to document our first public meeting. It should be exciting, my co-board members are unfortunately tied up this evening, but have promised to try and make an appearance. Hopefully all goes according to plan.

Things are looking great.
