The Indianapolis International Group Message Board › International Group Organizers
Hi, we will be adding some organizers for the International Group, and please let me know if you might be interested in being one!
Being an organizer means taking part in the direction that the group goes in and setting up events--anywhere from a couple times a year to once a month, depending on how much time you have. You'll have access in Meetup to set things up on the calendar, and it's simple to set up events.
We would especially benefit from organizers in the following areas, and let me know if you think of other areas you'd like to be in charge of...
Festival organizer - keep on eye out for local happenings like the Irish Fest, Middle Eastern Fest and International Fest and set these up.
Language and Culture organizers - choose a specific country of your interest (China, Germany, Morocco etc.) and set up language exchange meetings, relevant cultural events or have meetings at restaurants etc. It would be great to have someone doing this for each country represented in the group!
Concert organizer - look for musical performances the group might like or for music related events, like going out to hear music and dance.
Network organizer - promote our group events and keep in touch with members by setting up a page for the group on a networking site, like on Facebook and MySpace.
It's fun to be able to set up events, because anytime you see somewhere you'd like to go, all you have to do is set it up as an event, people sign up, and you show up to meet everybody. Instant social event! :-) If you enjoy getting together with people, it's easy and it's fun.
Also, starting in January 2010 there will be a very small annual fee for this group ($6 a year), and that will not apply to the organizers.
Please let me know if you are interested and we can talk more about it, and keep sending ideas for future Meetups as well.
