With all the other great WordPress Meetups, there is lots of fantastic content (which you should check out on the website (http://www.arizonawp.org)), so here is what you can expect from our meetups...

Our focus is to help beginners to power-users with:

• Fast/Convenient/Easy ways to work with WordPress (and still do it right)
• What to do once you have a site (i.e. how to get people to your site, a.k.a. marketing)

Of course, we are here to help you get all your WordPress questions answered too.
