The Bay Ridge Book Club, a small club in my Brooklyn neighborhood. I'm also considering organizing a local cooking club, once I have more experience as a Meetup organizer.
My group has 106 members, and the same 15-20 only are active. A fair number of people RSVP and then don't show up. I want to broaden the scope and activities of the group to attract more people, but the response has been very low to my efforts to reach out to all members.
I joined Meetup at the suggestion of a friend who heard of it from a friend of hers. A few months later, the first group I joined lost its organizer and I decided to try my hand at leading the group. I'm a natural leader.
A great idea.
