WordPress Toledo is designed for people to sharpen or share their WordPress skills, by attending a monthly networking, education and sharing event in Toledo, Ohio. Meetings consist of a talk by a local professional, such as a content specialist, designer, developer, and those with WordPress expertise. We love to mix it up with networking, tips, Q&A, and general WordPress discussion.
Are you the sort of person who likes to help? We are seeking volunteers to help run this local, open sourced organization.
