When I created the Meetup organizers group I created it with a genuine heart to help. I know I have been asked by a lot of people ? Why are you doing it? The answer is that?s Placida, I love to help where I see a need.
I love the vision of Scott The CEO of meetup.com and I was greatly honoured that I hosted him in London through this group. There were 2 other organizers group exiting alongside this but this one hosted Scott, why? I would say Divine connection.
In my mind, I see Meetup being really big in the UK which is my reason for creating the Fan page, Twitter, Tube tube for Meetup Organizers UK.
I have spent the last one week appraising my last one year, and I can say I am blessed. It was in that process of appraisal ? Rebranding Placida came about. In the letter I received today I was told amongst other things that sending that mail was ?an act of great selfishness?
One of my decisions in this process of rebranding is to take action and take action fast. After much consideration I have decided to step down as organizer of this group.
@ Bernie @ Tracy, I am sorry I did not discuss this with you first. I didn?t want to be talked out of it.
@ Frankie @ Mark, You guys gave me good support and I give you a special thanks.
@ Bernie, I will pass on all the resources I have got for the group.
@ Organizers, I don?t want this group to die. It is going to benefit us all in the long run. When HQ is ready they are going to launch big here in the UK.
I am making Bernie and Tracy Co-organizer. @ Bernie you would have to make yourself organizer some how.
Please apply to assist Bernie and Tracy to run this group. I will continue to post anything I know would help to make us better organizers.
Thank you all for the support I have received in running this group. It?s time to move on.
The Meetup Organisers group welcomes all Organisers / Assistants and those considering starting a group but don’t know how to go about it.
This Meetup is for YOU (the fantastic Meetup and curious Organisers of London) to discuss and share so that you can improve your Meetup organiser performance.
If you want to learn about organising, building and developing your meetup community then join up here, and post your queries, share your experiences and talk all there is to talk about organising meetup successes.
ALSO, every other month we host a major event (usually on a Saturday) where we invite guest speakers to do short talks focused on a specific topics followed by activities and Q&A. Be sure to come along to this event as the largest group of organisers come together to share ideas and collaborate on how to make their meetups more successful.
