I've been getting many questions, and realized I need to clarify what I mean by "best practices". Successful meetups might have been a better title. Best practices wasn't intended to imply we were going to talk about ethics, behaviors and morals for atheists, although that might be a very interesting meetup if we could find someone qualified to host it.
I've been hosting newbie events and have gotten feedback from recent members that at some events, (not all!) , they've felt out of place, haven't been having fun and found the events to be disorganized. Organizing a successful meetup is always a challenge, so having organizers get together to talk about what works best and what we can do better is a good idea. I've picked up some valuable tips from some of our newer organizers and I'm sure there's more to be learned.
The second part of the event might be about longer term community building strategies, but that could be a separate event altogether.
