Statistics show that first impressions are made within the first 15 seconds of meeting someone and after that it is difficult to change even if that impression is incorrect. The same holds true in many other circumstances including attending group meetings. You can get an instant "feel" for the group usually after being there for just a short while and your mind is usually made up not long thereafter. It is important to attend a meeting first before you join. Go with your instincts..if it "feels good" run with it, if it "feels bad" run away from it.
Diva Angels, Inc. meetings at both the local and national levels are always open. Coming to a meeting first before joining is always recommended and encouraged and members and guests are welcome.
