Why not host some events. Great way to meet people!!!

Got an idea for an event or an event you want to do?

NOW is your chance!!!!

It's a new year coming up. AND you want it to be different than the last.
Do you find events and think: "Gee, . . . I like this event but want it closer, or on a different day, or just a little earlier or later."

If you post the event you pick the time, and place and date that in convenient to you. As well as pick the content/topic/focus of the event.

What a win!!!

This meetup is a giant collaboration. In that vein we welcome new organizers.

If you wish to become an Organizer on group. RSVP'ing here is a start and shows your agreement with the group rules for posting.
AND THEN fill out this form

These are basic rules all organizers must abide by and work within. Mostly they are all about showing a respect for the members.

Best Practices or the rules simplified.

1.) No Emailing and no using the "discussion" box
2.) No outside links
3.) All events are Hosted. There are no "no host" events.
4.) List any money costs in the first 2 or 3 lines.
5.) Special note about Repeat Events.
6.) Special note about city or area in title

Not too many rules. Not too complicated. They all have to do with respect for the membership.

1.) No Emailing AND No Discussion Box
The one BIG BIG rule I have is NOBODY messages the general membership via the email feature. Post the event and let Meetup send out all the notices. The discussion box is just another way for you to send spam. So that is closed, and only for the use and management by and of the (main) organizer only.

2.) No Outside links:
No links to other meetups. No links to other social media (no instagram, no eventbrite, no twitter, no facebook etc).
For instance: Do not just put a Facebook link. Instead copy all the wording from FB and put the words. Plain and simple; Link's are lazy. So don't be lazy!!!
You want members to click the RSVP. So you don't give any other option that may lead them away from the event page.
*** If you "need" outside links of any sort: Contact the lead organizer and just make sure ok. It usually is. Just ask first.

3.) Meetup does not allow "No Host" events. You or the listed Event Host will be there and present. You will welcome and make sure people can find you or the meetup area. And that people will be able to actually be able to meet others from meetup. If members in attendance report you are not attending your events you will not be allowed to continue to post events. If you want to post an "informational" event then go and post it on Craigslist.

4.) List money costs in the first few lines.
This has to do with email notices. The email version of the event sends the first few lines of the writeup. If it's free, . . .say it's free. If it costs . . . say it early so people have the info.
If it is free it is best to include the word "Free" in the title.

5.) Events can repeat no more than every three weeks, unless you get permission ahead of time.
When making a repeating event DO NOT USE the auto-scheduling feature. After your event occurs log on and list it again.
The Auto-pilot is a problem as people forget they listed. They don't show up and people do. The complaints end up being filed against the group and not the organizer that bailed.
If you use the "repeat" feature it will be edited and the future ones edited off.

6.) List the city or area in the title. You get better turnout and less flakes.

There are some general guidelines to making great events
General Guidelines:
A.) Great wording
B.) Great Pix
C.) 4 weeks notice is best.

Cost of posting events?
We do not charge for access to the group. We only ask that the event is good decent social and creates community.
