This sounds like an excellent group to become friends with. It reminds me of Women in Communication-- all mbrs. had the skills listed here & it's great to find what you need all in "one room." I'm a professional writer/photogr/videogr.
The people were not exactly in the fields that I expected. I thought the majority would be from "media" businesses (Marketing, PR, Biz, Tech, Graphics, Print/Web/Newsltr etc). I talked with almost 1/2 the people there, and very few were important contacts for my line of work. Maybe bec. several other Meetup grps. were invited who are not in the media business? I ended up giving sales pitches on one of my products instead of selling my skills "for hire", which was my original intention.
