I recently updated our Meetup group description and wanted to share it with you. There's a huge demand for TED in our state, and we want as many people to feel like they can get involved as possible. SO...we've empowered all of you to be group organizers. If you want to get involved, but just aren't sure how to do it, then email me, Carrie, for help.
Here's the latest group description:
Do you love TED?
Have you gotten lost online watching many of their thousands of talks?
Are you guilty of sharing them with everyone you know, insisting obnoxiously, "Ohmygoodness, you HAVE to SEE this!!!!"
Do you crave a connection with other New Mexicans who believe supporting these ideas can help grow our community for the better?
Then you're in the right place.
Guess what, though? This group isn't run by organizers. It's run by YOU. While we may post events that are specific to TED or TEDx, we want you to get involved by posting events that you think support great ideas in New Mexico.
This could be hosting a TEDTalks viewing, supporting other idea-based events like Ignite or ABQ Sprout, or simply getting like-minded folks together to talk about ideas over dinner or at the local farmers market. Use your imagination. Your ideas are worth sharing. Your ideas are worth a meeting with other TED lovers. Your ideas are the basis of our community. Put something on the calendar, won't you?
Not sure what to post? Check out our past Meetups to get ideas, but don't feel limited to what we've done before. This group is whatever you make it.
