    I thought the meetup was great! Very informative, the meetup staff was awesome, and there was a sufficient amount of time for networking and learning from one another's organizing experiences on a one on one basis. Just waiting for that sponsorship info email Maya ;)

    I found this Meetup to be very helpful and informative. I was particularly interested in learning about getting sponsorship and took away with me many ideas that I hadn't thought of. I was very impressed not only by the staff but by other organizers that attended.
    One suggestion, if I may; I felt there were too many different topics to cover with such a large group and so little time. I would like to see future Meetups of this nature to be more focused on just one or two topics. Overall it was a great experience!!! I look forward to more of these Meetups.

    Thank you Nestor and the Meetup.com staff for giving us the opportunity to "Meetup" ourselves. There are so many different Meetup Groups in the Tri-State area and to have the opportunity to see some of the faces in person was a big treat for me. It was so nice to finally met some of the organizers that I have been a BIG Fan of for the first time and to have the opportunity to talk to some of the staff about some of the problems that I have come across an organizer made me feel alot better that my voice was heard. The information that you gave us last night was very helpful. It help me understand where this organization is going in the next couple of months. Thank you so much for the free food, booze, the goody bag, and the coffee. The coffee was so good! Thank Michael F. so much for giving me update on the Yankees score! I wish we won Big! What can we do?

    I appreciated Meetup's gracious hospitality and the chance to get to know other organizers. Our hosts were genuinely supportive and considerate. My only quibble was that the crowd of people (and the resulting noise level) made it harder to connect. But I will be back!

    The discussion was not very well organized. It turned into networking and I did not know where any groups were that I would have wanted to hear about. There was a group about sponsors in a small room and there was no more room for others to join. You should have had breakout areas for people to go to that they were interested in.

    Nice event & well done. Thanks for the unexpected food, drink & meetup goody bag. A very good presentation by the Meetup corporate gang led by Andres, Victor, Maya & others. Thanks to Nestor for organizing. I am eager to move forward on Sponsors for the various groups I'm associated with. Nice meeting Bridget, Melissa & Alfredo at the meeting.

    Wanted waaay more structure, and new information. Perhaps smaller too to better connect with other organizers.

    I really appreciate the time & effort that Meetup took to explain the growth of the company and how Meetup is doing as both a business and a social networking tool. I feel the people behind Meetup really care about us as organizers and want to make Meetup even better than it is. I look forward to more exciting things to come from the company. Great job to making this such an informative meeting.

    The event was pretty interesting. It is nice to hear where the other organizers heads are at. I think more organizers should have attended. And the people that work for Meetup are VERY cool.

    This one was one of the most helpful Meetup leader events I've ever attended. Lots of good information, excellent format, concise, easy to understand and interactive. In conversations with the fantastic Meetup staff and fellow leaders I learned so many useful things in regards of the site use, sponsorship opportunities, organization in general and upcoming projects within the network.
    I can't wait for the new things coming out for the mobile phone and iPhone users.
    Thanks Nestor for organizing such a great event and everyone at the Meetup HQ for excellent hospitality and outstanding leadership.
