Meetup.com Organizers Crash Course! Settings, Tips & Tricks, and more..

This is the event of the year, everyone will be talking about. 

This is unlike any event we have had in the past.  If you don't walk away with at least 7 new ideas or things you didn't know I will be surprised!

Regardless if you are a New Organizer or have been with Meetup for years?  This WORKSHOP will provide the tools needed for planning, building, promoting, and attending a Meetup.  This knowledge is the foundation of building and managing your group.

WHAT TO EXPECT?
1) Everyone will be grouped into teams of 5-10
2) Before each stage, the instructor will review the settings/options and some insight on how and when to use them.
3) At each stage, the group will work on an aspect of building a new Meetup site
4) We'll have time to network and hear from others on how they implement these settings in their Meetup Group
5) Lastly each team will have to present their new Meetup Group and 2 upcoming events for it.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN?
- Things to conciser when setting up a group or that you may want to change to an existing group
- Explanation of items under the Groups settings
- Tips and Tricks for making your group more attractive and engaging for your members
- Helping with those challenging decisions of charging members

    Due to the weather and the safety of our members, we have decided to postpone tomorrow's meeting until February. We are working with Meetup to get an exact date. For those of you who have pre-paid I will be sending a copy of the Guide prior to the session for you to review. If you are unable to make the new date, I will issue you a refund. BTW, there was 72 people in total RSVP'd, so this will be a great session when we have it next month.

      @Tim, we have organizers and Meetup staff traveling from outside the city where driving and parking in the city will troublesome tomorrow. It is in the best interest of all members that this be rescheduled to have a safe and engaging experience.

    hi -- do you know the best way to get there from Penn Station? thanks for the help!

    January 20, 2014

    • Mike C.

      From Penn Station, take the A, C or E downtown to West 4th Street. Go downstairs and take a Brooklyn bound, B, D, F or M train one stop to Broadway Lafayette. It's also Spring Street on the 6 line.
