Want to be an organizer of the VGC?? (Google Hangout)

Here is the link for the hangout:  https://plus.google.com/hangouts/_/76cpi0ku369f0m61hbt6r0pbl0?pqs=1&authuser=0&hl=en

We are looking to expand the number of organizers we currently have. If you are interested in becoming an organizer, I'll hold this informational Google Hangout on Sunday to let people know what we do to organize the Meetup. Please read below to see what the organizers are looking for in fellow VGC leadership. We are hoping to get people in all parts of the city/suburbs to help set up Meetups in their particular areas and help manage social media accounts. This can help ensure that we get more coverage for members.

    What's going to be the agenda for this? I highly doubt I'll host anything, but would like to know anyways.

      Basically to answer any questions folks have about organizing. We need more organizers as the current ones all have non-video game related full time jobs and we need more people to help out. Little Red Hen, you know? "Who will help me bake my bread?"

      Also organizing is more than hosting... it's the social media piece and just "helping out." We are looking for people who are active in the club to help so we can do some different things and have folks in all sections of the city. Anyone can post a Meetup, but a lot of people don't do it and we like to have at least 2 main Meetups a month.
