On March 21st, it was announced Meetup had made the decision to remove the discussion forum boards from their site, which have been a valuable tool for members over the years. A new help resource page is being developed, but in the meantime, we will still have questions and issues that need real time answers, some of which can't be found in a FAQ page. The intent of this group is to allow organizers to reach out to each other with questions, concerns and to offer advice to each other on how to most successfully run our groups. Please note, you do not have to live in the Portland Metro area to be a member of this group.

    Let's ring in the new year by doing something somewhere.  Anyone want to host this event? (Testing the new "feature" that organizers can now post events without a host).
