Improving the Meetup organizer application form

During the last MeetupMeetup All local/regional gatherings that are officially a part of the WordPress world but are not WordCamps are organized through https://www.meetup.com/. A meetup is typically a chance for local WordPress users to get together and share new ideas and seek help from one another. Searching for ‘WordPress’ on meetup.com will help you find options in your area. vetting sprint, Francina brought up that the Meetup organizer application form might need some changes. In many of the applications received, the information given is quite limited and deputies need to ask more information before any vetting can be done.

Need to ask more information from applicants, makes the vetting process take more time and adds a extra work to deputies. As well it does for the same from applicants perspective. All and all, this causes unwanted time-to-time backlog and slower resolution time for applications. By improving the Meetup organizer application form, we can hopefully make vetting a bit more streamlined, shorten the time that applications are in queue and introduce new meetups to chapter program faster.

Current meetup form can be found here.

Please share your thoughts how the Meetup organizer application form could be improved. Is there some questions you need to ask almost every time while vetting new application? What kind of information is lacking from applications? What additional information would help you to make the decision or make you feel more comfortable while doing it?
