What is a Meetup group? What is a Meetup group?

Meetup groups are communities for WordPress users, developers, designers, and entrepreneurs to gather with like-minded people. Always welcoming and safe, Meetup events can be a place to learn more about WordPress or to give back to your community by sharing what you’ve learned with others. Meetup groups that are part of the WordPress chapter program are open to all WordPress enthusiasts regardless of their skill level, financial status, or orientation.

Any group that adheres to the Good Faith Rules can be part of the chapter program. After they have joined, to remain in good standing a group must have at least one event a month (although we encourage more), address (or request help with) any violations of the Good Faith Rules, and continue to be a good steward of the WordPress open source project.
