If you wanted to have an official meet-up, you can apply for a LongeCity grant of up to $400.

I would say that you could likely get a small grant if you had 5 or more people for a meet--up.

I have 7 people in VA who responded to my chapters survey. Only one of which is present in this thread. What were you thinking of organizing?

I enjoy the forums and the sharing of information I also would like to be more involved. What do the other groups do?

There is no limit to what you can do with a local group. LongeCity is just here to provide you with a little help to get a local group off the ground. Money for renting a meeting space (although there are plenty of spots for free, such as restaurants, libraries, even Whole Foods). LongeCity could cover a portion of food and beverages for a meet-up as well.

 

The thing is, ideas spread when people meet, often times better than online.

Instead of a grant to form the group, I would rather the group form first elect (draft) people to positions i.e. Group leader, Treasure and a Secretary then at some point in the future as the group matures resources could be used to host an event.

 

Another option would be to use those resources to help pay for a table at an event of conference. Bring in someone to talk to people about the organization and our goals.

The idea is that a casual meet-up can springboard things. Think small first, get a handful of people together and then plan/decide if you would like to do bigger things.

 

Of course, if you do a conference right off that bat, that would be great as well.

If you haven't already done so, please fill out this questionnaire. I have a total of 7 people listed as being in VA and only 1 of them is present in this thread. 

 

Comas, if you have a message you'd like me to send for you to attract those who've filled out the chapters questionnaire, let me know and I'll make it happen. There are even more who may be from VA who haven't seen the questionnaire yet, so I can help you get in touch with them too. I live in DE, so depending on where you have it, I might even be able to attend.

I don't think you are limited to just one grant. 

 

In any case, to kick things off, I suggest applying for a grant and using it to give membership refunds/rebates (free memberships) for existing users (at the time of the event) who sign up for an annual membership subscription.

Thank you PerC I have filled out the questionnaire.

 

Is there a group in DE?

So far I'm one of only two members in DE. We may get one going if we get more. I've been introducing people to LC locally when I meet potential members. I've got some other ideas I can try when I get time too.

I'm launching an online meetings chapter using Google Hangouts On Air. This would be a great way to bring together users in close proximity but still too far to meet locally.

 

Visit these pages for more info on LongeCity's new Online Meeting Chapter (pending approval).
