Do you know or have you heard about the site MEETUP.COM?

Meetups are

neighbors getting together to learn something, do something, share something…

a meeting, especially a regular meeting of people who share a particular interest and have connected with each other through a social-networking website:

Meetup is a social networking site that allows you to find and join groups related to your own personal interests. However, instead of just talking about these interests online, Meetup is used to organize offline and in-person meetings in your area. Common locations for Meetup groups include cafes, parks, and sometimes even people’s homes.

Meetup is a great resource for meeting new people, getting involved in your community, and being more active with an interest you enjoy. Best of all, it’s completely free to sign up for an account and get started.

Some Meetup events do have a fee to participate, but for the most part Meetup groups and events tend to be free.

Who runs a Meetup?

All Meetup groups are created and run by individuals called organizers. Every group you’ll find on Meetup was originally created by an individual just like you. These organizers created these Meetups because they wanted to meet others who shared their interests in a particular topic they felt passionate about. Whenever you attend a Meetup event, there should be an organizer there hosting it.

What types of Meetup groups are there?

There’s a variety of Meetup group topics, including books, food, outdoor activities, games, sports, and politics. Some are general, like a group for social gathering, while others can be more specific, like a group dedicated to glassblowing.

If you can’t find a group for a specific topic you’re interested in, you can always create your own Meetup group. However, it’s important to note that it does cost money to organize and run your own group (between $9.99-14.99 per month.)
