Did you know that Meetup was founded shortly after the September 11 terrorist attacks, in order to help strengthen communities?
Meetup is truly a great concept, in my opinion. This is their mission statement posted on the website: Meetup's mission is to revitalize local community and help people around the world self-organize. Meetup believes that people can change their personal world, or the whole world, by organizing themselves into groups that are powerful enough to make a difference.
That is an inspiring mission statement and really resonates with me.
So, this night, I'm inviting every Meetup group I know to participate in an "All Meetup" Social event.
I know lots of organizers from a number of groups, and I'm also inviting all the organizers out to talk about their events and groups to the folks who attend. If you are an organizer - please feel free to post this invite in your group.
So, hopefully you can come out, learn more about Meetup, learn more about the organizers and groups that comprise the Portland Meetup community, and have a lot of fun!!
About the Venue: Splash Bar is a fun place in the heart of the Pearl that has an open, airy atmosphere that is great for mingling. They have a happy hour that goes until 9pm, including great drink and beer specials, along with a wonderful food happy hour as well. Also, there is free pool and video games. And, a shot bus with $5 shot specials all night long.
Hope to see you there!
