An open letter to meetup organisers

Updated on Jun 07, 2020

I’ve been organising Staffs Web Meetup for just over 18 months. It’s one of the most rewarding and stressful things I have done in my career.

A few months ago I was speaking with Phil Wylie and Natasha Allsopp about how we could make our lives easier. There are lots of meetup groups in the area. We thought it might be good to have a casual meetup of meetup organisers. An opportunity for us to share experiences, knowledge and contacts.

Fast forward to today. We have a website and mailing list. We don’t have a date right now but it will be in Birmingham. We’re hoping it will be a relaxed evening with good company. If successful I’m hoping this can turn into a twice yearly event.

At the moment we’re gauging interest. So if you’re a meetup organiser and interested, have a look! We’ve setup a ridiculously long website address for it.
