untilTHIS EVENT IS FROM 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM EST. If you are not currently logged into a Community forums account, or if your account is registered in a time zone other than Eastern, the time of the event may appear to be different. The Guild Kickoff meeting is a great place to meet other Extra Lifers - both those who volunteer with the Extra Life Baltimore Guild and those who support our local hospital, Johns Hopkins Children’s Center! Washington, D.C. area Extra Lifers are also encouraged to attend as there is not currently an active D.C. Guild, but we are helping Children's National to cover D.C. area events! Thanks to the hard work and dedication of Extra Lifers and Extra Life Baltimore Guild volunteers, we raised over $120,000 for Johns Hopkins Children's Center and helped Children's National grow their fundraising year-over-year! We'd love to celebrate this success with you, hang out, hear your stories, and tell you more about why we work so hard at conventions in the area throughout the year. Lunch will be provided, and you'll have an opportunity to meet some of the Miracle Kids that have been impacted by the fundraising our Extra Lifers have done! Family friendly board games will be provided, and you're welcome to bring your own games to play!

Hey guys! Just wanted to touch base with any active DC members who are interested in getting more involved with recruiting, or possibly helping to establish the DC Guild. Since we're growing, and pretty organized, we're going to be representing Extra Life in the DC Metro area as well as in Maryland events so we don't miss out on the large number of potential participants in that area. My hope, of course, is that we can help you guys get things rolling, and that we can continue to collaborate going forward since our cities are so close together and share a lot of the same attendees. I posted this megathread for upcoming events, and I invite you all to follow it for updates. You can also follow our calendar! If you would like to volunteer at an event, please be sure to RSVP as "Going" on the event page so that I know to follow up with you. I look forward to hearing from some of you!
untilThis is a normal monthly meeting in which we will be discussing volunteer needs for the upcoming Artscape and Otakon events, as well as additional recruitment opportunities. All local Extra Lifers are encouraged to join the guild and participate in planning and volunteering. We'd love to see you there! Parking is directly across the hospital in the Orleans Street Garage. When you arrive you will take the elevator to the 4th floor and cross the sky bridge on the right side of the garage to get to the Children's Center Lobby.
