Hey Meetup Leaders,


I have received several requests to have another Meetup on "How to grow your Meetup membership". So i think it is a good idea to have this event twice a year.


1) Member Meet & Greet (Starts at 6:00pm)
2) Collaborative Networking
3) Featured Presentation (Starts at 6:30pm)
4) Short Q&A for Featured Presenter(s) (Starts at 7:00pm)
5) End Meeting (End 7:30pm)

I can't wait to meet everyone, hear about your experiences, and share ideas on how to make the Meetup experience an unforgettable one.


P.S. I am very open to ideas for this group. Especially Meetup topics.

    **implied by the description, OC-Good-Life Founder & Head Roberto­
    *BUT NO FEAR, as even still:
    **Both leaders I quite want 2talk to in person
    **With just these leaders,or even less,I VERY MUCH WILL ATTEND&LKG FWD2IT! -EVEN IF it's myself &just 1 other Meetup leader interested in making improvements to Meetup grp admin, as
    **the topic&solutions are essential
    **this is the 1st such attempt at such a mtg in OC I know, &a very admirable attempt,&I fear there may not be another soon
    ***We really need starting such mtgs 2get the ball rolling, as w/ MANY specialty topic mtgs I've seen&done,attendance is often not immediate,but grows over repeats as folks see it's really happening

      *Computing that list of nearby & interested members, sorted by distance, was hard, the real work (besides the manual labor of Greeting each mbr); in the next comments I'll detail how I computed it & which members.
      **From the 1st 4 pages(80 mbrs) of­ (time visited back to "Last visited over two months ago") then adding some of 1st 3 pgs (50mbrs) of­ (thru no-connection) (marked #), all sorted by increasing driving time from the mtg location (by OC Airport), gave me this list which I break apart in comments since I can only fit 1000 characters/comment.

      Got to drive to the event, so I'll later post here (below) this list of nearby members I computed, sorted by driving distance from this mtg. My ETA is ~6:10pm (not 7:10pm, that earlier was a typo). See ya all there!

    I DestinyArchitect routinely publish TECHNIQUES&TIPS ON MEETUP­ incl a few on this event's topic"How to grow your meetup membership",&esp on growing attendance,which is often notably hard 4the majority groups who, unlike above­ ,serve specialty topics.
    *But not yet published there(indeed 1st announced now here!) is MY LATEST TRICK I've been working on 2BOOTSTRAP ATTENDANCE WHEN LOW
    **based esp on:on Meetup,early YES RSVPs attract many more of em.
    **simple boilerplate text added2the top of event listing,1st done in pt MGDU8A of­ ;also copied by­
    **This is alpha-release as it's not yet tested w/a completed event and I still need to make THE MASTER ARTICLE FOR IT­ to explain the concept & keep all copies in sync.
    **&I'd love ur feedback! 4now(until that article is up), just click "Reply" to this thread :-)

    I'd love to attend these meetings, but Irvine is way too far for me.
