SGN WhatsApp Groups:
There are three large WhatsApp groups covering the main geographical areas in the SF Bay Area (mid-Pen may either by in SF or South Bay, around the Redwood City division). These are informally administered by the regional director for Singapore Global Network (SGN), David Ho.
To join these please message David (SGN) Ho as the groups are full (WhatsApp has a 257 member per group limit) and he will need to remove a group member (likely someone who has left the area) to add you in.
