Have you been thinking of ways to gather like-mined folx?
Do you currently run a meetup but have found since the pandemic, it’s been hard to keep momentum?
Are you already a member of a meetup or interest group looking for ways to make it MIGHTY?
In 2012, Alison K started the Creative Kick, a meetup for visual artists. Through trial and error, she learned a TON about community management. Which would come in handy when she started the WordPress Halifax Meetup in 2015. And then -critical- when the pandemic hit.
In this talk, she’ll give you the lowdown on how to run healthy, happy, ENGAGED meetups. Some points she’ll cover includes:
- how to start from zero (no people, no venue, no $? No problem!)
- how to nurture the talents and interests of core members
- tips, tools and tricks to give energy and time back to you as an organizer
- handling difficult/uncomfortable situations (what to do when adults… need an adult)
While this talk will focus on a WordPress meetup, note the information can apply to any interest you want to grow community around!
