We’re now a proud member of the WordPress Meetup Chapter Program.
What does this mean? Well first, our Meetup.com fee is now covered by the fine folks at the WordPress Foundation. That means we don’t have to raise funds or charge admission to cover the cost. It also means we’re not at the mercy of a sponsor to cover this cost every year. This will also result in more visibility to our group, and other benefits to organizing events and activities.
We are still free to pursue sponsorships and the like, and run our group as we have for the past 4 years – open, inclusive, free, and fun.
A small sliver of hubris –
we’re also the 71st largest (out of 599) WordPress Meetup Group! (Update: I misread that list. We’re actually #92!)
