This group is for anyone who uses (or is interested in learning more about) WordPress and Divi. Built by Elegant Themes, Divi is a drag and drop web page builder for everyday users. This group is a great place to meet fellow members of the Divi Community, known affectionately as the Divi Nation. Join us to learn, make friends, and network with local designers, developers, DIYers, business owners, and more.
Our Aspirations & Goals
1. We aspire to build a local, personal community for Divi Users.
2. We aspire to empower our members through in-person training, workshops, discussions, and more.
3. The end goal of this meetup is to increase our members' confidence and competence in web design when using WordPress and Divi.
Do you share these aspirations and goals?
To accomplish these things, we need a dependable team of volunteers. After all, the community is not sustained by a single organizer, it's sustained by its members! If any of the volunteer opportunities below sound like something you're interested in, please message the main organizer of this group.
• Bringing refreshments to one or more future meetings • Greeting new members as they show up • Promoting events locally and online • Taking photos at events (helps with promotion for later events) • Helping to tear down or set up as needed at events • Speaking/Presenting Co-Organizing (Not every Co-Organizer needs to do ALL of the below) Speaker/Presenter booking Meetup Group Management Creating Event Posts Announcing/Promoting Events on Meetup Reserving venues when needed Organizing other volunteers on a per meeting basis Facilitating meetings in person And whatever else comes up!
A heartfelt welcome all of our new Divi Tampa members! This first meetup will be a great opportunity to meet each other, discover our collective knowledge, talents, strengths and gaps in the realm of Divi and Wordpress. Find out what we expect from our Meetup group, what we want to learn and what we might be able to share with our fellow members. We have flexibility in our meetups to arrange presentations, round table or panel discussions, workshops or social mixers. The choices are ours, and planning assistance is welcome!
