The NYC-TCK MeetUp group was started in 2008, and since then we've gotten together and made some great connections and done some pretty awesome things! Over the past five years, so many things in our lives have also changed -- some of us have given into "the itch" and moved across the country or abroad, changed jobs and residences, returned to graduate school, and even started families.
Unfortunately, as other professional and personal aspects of life begin to make more and more demands on my time and attention, I realized that I will have to make a few adjustments and adaptations. (Isn't this what TCKs do best!)
To keep the group active, I would like to try moving the group toward a format that allows for more member involvement. As its organizer, I will continue to pay the monthly MeetUp.com fees and the group will remain free for people to join and attend events. However, in addition to Organizer and Assistant-Organizer hosted events, I would like to welcome group members to volunteer to be Event Hosts.
If you would like to be an Event Host, simply use the "Suggest A MeetUp" feature on the group MeetUp site to suggest an event that you think other members would enjoy attending. The Organizer and Assistant-Organizer are notified of suggested meetups, and we will announce your suggestion and identify you as the Event Host.
We will keep our major events as is possible but I hope that allowing for more member hosted events will allow people to continue to use the group to meet other TCKs and keep making great connections while this temporary ebb passes.
