In the past few months the organizers haven't been able to dedicate as much time to the meetup as we'd like. Rather than shut the group down permanently, we're hoping to have a few people volunteer to help run the group, plan and host events, etc. We can add you as an organizer if you'd like to take an active role; if you'd rather just host an occasional meetup all you have to do is commit to hosting the event and let one of the organizers know so that we can update the website. If we can get a few people to host one or two meetups per year we should be able to keep the group going.
We are also looking to change how the bills are paid for PSM. Meetup.com charges us about $144 per year. Since we don't charge members and don't bring in any money, I have paid the fee out of my own pocket for the past few years. However, Meetup now allows groups to have sponsors, so it makes sense to set up a sponsor or two to pay for the group. If you or someone you know would like cheap advertising on our site, just get in touch with one of the organizers.
Thanks to everyone who has participated in the meetups over the past few years.
