"If we have one mission at the Creative Pro User Groups, it's to continue to discover new ways to work together as storytellers, never defining ourselves by ANY one tool but by what we create with those tools. But honestly, it's really about the gathering and the art of Visual Storytelling and the sharing of story. It's about getting out of the house and away from work and meeting up with like minded people, many of whom are probably smarter than you. It's the networking and learning opportunities. It's the possibility that you will meet someone who will change your life."
