I am relatively new on BP and learning quickly but I am the type of person who learns best hands on. I am also a social media/inbound marketing person so I am on most social media sites very frequently. As such, I own a meetup group in CT called Central CT REI Meetup. I just started the group a week ago but I'd really like to get it off the ground and get to know the local REIs.
It is free, I am not looking to make money off the group but please if you are in CT and would like to meet other investors join at http://www.meetup.com/Central-CT-REI-Meetup/
