Seeking a volunteer content writer(s) for creating a press release for our group...

Greetings! Hope you all are gearing up for a fun holiday season.

As you are likely aware, our group is about to reach a significant milestone of 1000 members - as of this writing, we are 992 members strong, and according to, we are the largest Tech focused meetup group in Minnesota ( Until now, most of our group's growth has been organic because we haven't done any significant "marketing" to get the word out to the larger developer or  business community. For whatever its worth, I believe its about time and a great reason to send out a press release highlighting our group's success. So here I am, seeking a volunteer within our group to help formulate a press release. Do you have expertise in this area? Are you able to help? Please contact me. I greatly appreciate your help.

Why is this such a great milestone?
Exactly two years ago this group had 300+ some members and was scheduled for shutdown due to lack of activity. Today, we are the largest tech meetup in Minnesota! Together, we have not only revived this group, but made sure that it becomes a flourishing ecosystem. We still have ways to go, much more to accomplish, and new heights to climb. We are not looking for growth only in terms of number of group members but goal is to continue to expand an ecosystem where we all get together to learn, network and share our expertise with each other.

Our community wouldn't have achieved such success without active participation from you all, help from all volunteers, and many presenters who stepped forward each month to share their expertise with fellow group members. We were also fortunate to find partners like Minneapolis Community and Technical College for hosting our monthly meetings, and group sponsors who sponsored some of our monthly meetings. Personally, I was lucky enough to be able to find passionate co-organizers as well. During last 2 years, we have also partnered with other meetup groups to promote cross-pollination among various technology focused groups because we believe that healthy ecosystem benefits us all! Basically, we are here to partner with, not compete with other meetup groups.

I look forward to hearing from you. If you have any suggestions or ideas on how to improve this group further, don't hesitate to contact any of the organizers. We hope to see your continued and active participation in the group in 2014 and beyond.

Thank you for your time. Wishing you happy holidays!
