Hi Everyone,
Tonight I emailed a member who was hoping I could describe our group in more detail. I figured I'd take a moment to share with everyone, since our goal is to connect with other New Mexicans who have a mutual love of TED.
A few points to help describe our group:  We are the world's first, and now, largest TED-related Meetup group. Our members span New Mexico, and extend far beyond cities like Albuquerque and Santa Fe. Since our group's inception, members of this Meetup assembled to create TEDxABQ, which reached over 30,000 people its first year, and more than 60,000 people this past September. We've hosted nearly 20 Meetups in the last 2 years, and our gatherings have resulted in new friendships and partnerships that extend well beyond this website.
As one who doesn't care much for numbers, I'll get to my point...This group is for you. We want you to get as much out of it as you can.
Have a great idea for a Meetup that relates to TED? Consider hosting a Meetup. Our organizers are based in Albuquerque, but we'd love to see Meetups happening in other cities. It's hard for us to be everywhere. Let us help you host meetings in Santa Fe, Taos, Gallup, Las Cruces, Jemez, Farmington, Bandelier, White Sands...anywhere there are TEDHeads in our beloved state!
Examples of Meetups we've hosted in the past:
  • TEDTalk viewings (held at private homes or local businesses and restaurants)
  • TEDBooks - Monthly meetings to discuss a book written by a TED speaker
  • Outings to support an idea promoted by a TED speaker (such as this month's event supporting local food)
The sky's the limit when it comes to ideas. Don't let this short list prevent you from suggesting something new!
If you would like to host a Meetup, feel free to email myself or any of our other group organizers. We're happy to help.

Thanks for reading - Hope to see some of you at our upcoming events!
