Have fun?
Meetup makes it easy. Here are some tips.. 

1. Join a variety of groups - you'll meet local folks with simliar interests.

2. Include your full name and current photo.

TIP: Include your profession next to your name. Click on your profile menu by your photo in the upper right-hand corner of your screen and select 'Settings' to go to your Account page.

From the 'General' tab, click "EDIT" next to your current name. Enter your profession by your name and click 'Submit.'

2. Fill out your profile so folks (and search engines) will see it.

3. RSVP and visit the meetups you've joined.

4. Offer to speak on topics relevant to the group.

5. Speak well - Practice, time your talk, encourage discussion.

6. Get visible on meetup by commenting and welcoming new folks who join.

7. Get OK from the organizer to promote your personal events on the calendar of groups you belong to. Meetup emails the info out to the group members.
