QPEX was formed in June of 2011. The first Monday in July we had our first munch where we had 12 people attend. From the very first munch we met some absolutely wonderful people and QPEX was off to a start. Since then we have met on the first Monday of every month for our QPEX munch. In July 2012 QPEX had our 1 year anniversary party. This was such a wonderful event. We had close to 40 people attend and some traveled from as far as Wisconsin to attend! QPEX has grown to have over 260 online members and munch (meeting) attendance between 20 and 30 people. In March of 2013, we have acquired a building for QPEX events. This building is 88′ x 183′ with a stage theater in the basement and a main cathedral with 60′ ceilings. It needs some work but it is still pretty amazing. The positive energy in this group has been overwhelming and has encouraged us to push forward into the future.
