Meetup and The Wise Computer Lady of Hendricks County
Related Article: Meetup Setup Process and Prices and What is Meetup?.
My name is Kimberly and I’ve lived in Danville for more than 20 years. I would like to organize the online presence of your Hendricks County organization, fundraiser, or event on the social media website Meetup.com. While developing the Meetup site for the Westside Professional Women organization, I quickly recognized the lack of listings for any or our many Hendricks County organizations and groups—and I want to change that and help to provide for our county a more up-to-date, prominent presence on the social media giant Meetup.com.
Let me tell you a little about myself. I’m a member of the Westside Professional Women organization and was nominated for the 2013 Danville Chamber of Commerce Community Award for my work on the 2013 iGROW fundraiser, which consisted of handling the event’s online presence as well as setting up the listing for Hendricks County Happenings on LinkedIn. Hendricks County Info, which is similar to the Yellow Pages but for Hendricks County and provides cost-free listings for local businesses, is one of my current projects. I am also a 3D graphic artist, and my artwork can be found on book covers such as The Brothers now for sale on Amazon.

Learn About the Social Media Website Meetup.com
Meetup.com is the world’s largest network of local groups. Meetup makes it easy for anyone to organize a listing for a local group or find one of the thousands of organizations and groups already meeting up face-to-face. More than 9,000 groups get together in their local communities every day, each one with the goal of improving themselves or their communities.
Meetup’s mission is to revitalize local community activities and help people around the world self-organize. Meetup believes that people can change their personal world, or the whole world, by organizing themselves into groups that are powerful enough to make a difference.
Here’s What Wikipedia Has to Say About Meetup.com
Meetup is an online social networking portal that facilitates offline group meetings in various localities around the world. Meetup allows members to find and join groups unified by a common interest, such as politics, books, games, movies, health, pets, careers, or hobbies. Users enter their postal code or their city and the topic they want to meet about, and the website helps them arrange a place and time to meet. Topic listings are also available for users who only enter a location. Meetup receives revenue by charging Organizer Dues to administrators of groups, currently at $12 to $19 per month depending on the payment plan.
Following the September 11 attacks, the site’s co-founder Scott Heiferman publicly stated that the manner in which people in New York City came together in the aftermath of that traumatic event inspired him to use the Internet to make it easier for people to connect with strangers in their community. Meetup, Inc. is based in New York City.
