Members decide what Meetups to join largely based on the group description. When writing your description, be sure that it answers the following questions:

* Who should join: Describe your ideal members.
* Why should members join: Is it to learn more, challenge their skills or have fun?
* What can members expect out of the group: Describe typical activities.
* Community: Could you please explain how your Meetups will facilitate relationships between your members?

Keeping your description brief and informational will help ensure that members have a clear understanding of your Meetup and whether or not it’s a good fit.

Non-members of a Meetup will see the group description on your Meetup group's homepage, above the list of upcoming Meetups.
