Once you’re out of school, making new friends can be problematic. Either you’re stuck with the people you work with every day or have to make do with the parents of your kids’ friends. Wouldn’t it be great if you could just join up with people in your hometown who have the same interests as you do? And wouldn’t it be wonderful if doing so was as easy as going to a website, looking for a group (or starting your own), joining and showing up to the party? Now there’s Meetup.com, a site that does just that.
Whether you’re into sports, exercise, movies, beer tasting, poetry, crafts or just getting together for a social gathering, Meetup.com has a group to suit your needs. Simply type in your interest, the place you live and how far you’re willing to drive to get to an event. If you’re not sure what interest to search for, you can browse a huge list to get some ideas.
Meetups really shine when it comes to managing clubs. Use a Meetup group to promote your club, sign up new members, share rules, post events, collect dues, and more. Every group has its on mini-site and can even advertise the sponsors that defray part of its cost. Don’t see a group you like? Start your own. It’s as simple as typing in your zip code, describing who the group is for (moms, dancers, flea market shoppers, etc.). Come up with a great name and Meetup.com will help you do the rest.
