YES, We’re Back!

It’s been a long time since the folks have gathered. We started so many good things, and changed so much. Then…the music faded. People have kept things going and there are so many cool things going on here in Dallas.

We have to connect share and help each other grow. We all remember Spark Club, we are still trying to keep the dream alive, on our own. It’s about time to come together and connect. However, many changes have taken place and as always with a change comes growth. What is the growth you ask?

We still have some of the same good people we know and love, but new people have come into the circle. This doesn’t mean we’ve stopped there, we’re still growing and still evolving into doing good. As always the people listed aren’t the only ones these are just the few to highlight for now. We are also asking more of the question of what have you done lately?

We’re watching TEDxSMU and loving what they say; are there things we can do to keep the great ideas going?

Who else is out there? The Dallas Engaged Professionals, the next generation of Dallas game changes. Instead of just talking they really do take action. In their words,

“Dallas Engaged Professionals (DEP) is a social impact group inspired by the minds and innovators behind TED and TEDxSMU. While learning more and more about TED and other idea sharing forums, a thought formed to create a similar TED platform, but for young professionals and millenials. Our mission is to connect passionate young professionals to enrich their community. We want to be an organization that informs, connects and collaborates with people to have a positive impact on the city of Dallas. DEP is a diverse and multifaceted group that hopes to spark people’s passion for their community.”

We have the continuing support of Pecha Kucha and the dynamic duo of Sarah Jane Semrad and her partner in crime Brian Murphy. We have much in store planned together for that.

Finally for this post but not for who is out there we have our team members all contributing and also of course still part of the fun we have Super Bob, Bob Wright, still leading some of the light for us. and what we are up to.

So let’s get started and start changing the world. We will start updating this blog more often and start putting up a calendar of events as we go as well. It’s hard to find all the things going on around us and we invite you to let us know also what is going on, big or small.
