Columbus' Monthly Meetup

27 Jun 2017
6:30pm - 8:30pm EDT

We are meeting in the Auditorium of the Metropolitan Library main branch.

What will the Meetup include?

-LEARNING TOPIC: The Power of Checklists: How the Details Make the Difference 

Death rates from heart surgery have decreased by 40%. The human heart is the most complex organ, so how have the numbers decreased so dramatically? Atul Gawande, author of Checklist Manifesto, believes it's because of a simple tool: The Checklist. Surgeons are discovering what airline pilots learned decades ago: The human brain can't remember everything, so it's best to focus on the complicated challenges and leave the simple reminders to a cheat sheet.

June Giveaway: Did you know more than 5 million Americans are living withAlzheimer’s? Every 66 seconds another American develops this disease. Alzheimer’s is the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S. and kills more than breast and prostate cancer combined. We are giving away items from the National Alzheimer’s Association as well as a preventative book and an awareness movie. Go purple this month for Alzheimer’s Awareness! Two winners will be chosen at random. Good luck!

-ACCOUNTABILITY SUPPORT: Come to the Meetup to work on your personal commitments. Share your promise with your small table of five and get feedback in a supportive environment.

- UNIFIED PROMISE: Come to the Meetup to learn more about our Unified Promise for July!

-SNACKS & BEVERAGES: As always, we will be providing snacks and drinks.

There is an elevator in the deck you can take to the 1st floor, which will lead you to the Auditorium.

Street metered parking is also available.


Chapters are a volunteer-driven community effort that need committed people like you. Together, members in the Chapter identify and assess needs in their community and design impactful promises to meet those needs. It can be something as simple as committing to a certain number of hours cleaning up a neighborhood park, to volunteering to help a local nonprofit’s ongoing efforts, to larger projects like establishing a mentor/tutor program to support children/students in need or establishing a self-sustaining program to help fund a homeless shelter.
