I’ve finally taken the Meetup.com plunge.
I’ve been a lurker, joining some groups around town, and even a few in other places just to see how different groups operate. I’ve even attended a few area meetups. Wow–was that a personal challenge for this introvert, or what?! I feel comfortable with the online interface as a user, so I figured it was time to start a group.
Oh, that, and I have some fabulous volunteers who are interested in managing and hosting groups!
That’s key to my outreach strategy for non-profits. It can be overwhelming managing all of these social networking tools. So I crafted some volunteer descriptions specific to meetups, and they’ve just been waiting for the right souls to fill them.
I’ll keep you posted, but wanted you to check out Meetup and share if you’ve had any experiences with joining or running groups of your own. And has anyone done this in relationship to a nonprofit?
