Meetup Rules

We publish a Meetup Guideline for all meetups as well as a facilitator's guide and meetup presentation for each event. To receive those, contact HQ.

Group Activities or Happy Hours

Off-Format Fun

Some chapters love setting up their own off-the-grid experiences, such as book clubs, happy hours, yoga, etc.

Want advice or creative ideas on this? Reach out on Slack to other chapters and HQ.

Special Events & Mini-Conferences

Special Events

From SXSW rallies to kick-off meetups in new chapter cities to charitable events, special events are the way to becoming an integral part of your city's professional scene.

Mini-Conference

This spring/summer event in your city can counter our National Conference in the fall. Our half-day format is absolutely amazing and well worth the time and effort you and your board will put into finding sponsors, suggesting a venue and scouting speakers.

If you’re up for the challenge, contact HQ and we’ll set up a conference call to plot and plan. 

National Conference

National Conference

Our pillar event of the year is a national conference held every fall in Columbus, Ohio – our HQ city. The national conference features main stage speakers, and Ask & Give Power Hours with dedicated specialty focuses.

While you’re not required at all to attend, we hope you do. Every board member received 50% off of her conference pass (the greater the savings the earlier you purchase)!

Marketing

You’re all marketers and we know you’re just dying to get out there and publish content on our behalf. But, brand standards and message control are of enormous importance to us. 

For the time being, we ask that your Community Management Chair use our pre-approved social content. If you have a brilliant content or marketing idea – bring it! Please contact HQ and we’ll do the best we can to bring that idea to life.
