Enhance Community Connections through Meetup Groups
Meetup is the world's largest network of local groups. Meetup makes it easy for anyone to organize a local group or find one of the thousands already meeting up face-to-face. More than 2,000 groups get together in local communities each day — in 45,000 different cities — each one with the goal of improving themselves or their communities.
From Poker Meetups to Knitting Meetups, you can explore a hobby. Ghost Tracking Meetups, Investors Meetups and Writers Meetups allow you to discover something new. There are also Pug Lover Meetups, Scrapbooking Meetups, Italian Language Meetups, Book Club Meetups... the list is extensive! It's virtually impossible to find something that won't strike your fancy.
Meetup Groups can be a great way to expand your community connections. Simply sign up at Meetup.com and then group organizers gather people together in coffeehouses, restaurants and living rooms to share experiences. Enter your zip code to find out what groups are already established in your area. Or start your own! Meetup Groups meet regularly in 55 countries around the world, so chances are that something interesting is happening in your neck of the woods.
Here's to an enhanced, enlightened sense of community!
