Organizing a Meetup Group

I recently took over as organizer of the Santa Barbara JavaScript Meetup after functioning as acting organizer for the past year. It's a great way to network and meet like-minded people in the local tech community.

I've had a good run of increasingly successful and well-attended events, and am looking forward to keeping the momentum going in the coming year.

I've reached out to my my employer about sponsoring the Meetup, and will reach out to other local tech companies also, in hopes that we can afford to bring in visiting speakers and host more elaborate events in the future.

Exciting times, to be sure, and I'd love feedback and suggestions from other Meetup organizers on what makes for a successful group!
