The Northwest Drupal Meetup Group is currently reorganizing. We hope to get a more established schedule by the Fall of 2017.
Margaret Plett, Co-Organizer did a wonderful job getting things started and John Zilligen took over when Margaret moved away. Meetups were graciously hosted by NxtTeam (http://www.nxtteam.com/) who recently moved from Schaumburg, IL to Oak Brook, IL. where we get together to share and learn Drupal.
I am willing to help organize and do some presenting, but we are busy down here in St Charles. There is definitely an audience in the northwest suburbs, is there someone willing to help organize the group? The meetup is setup so members can post a meeting, go ahead and get started
