What is Meetup?

Meetup is an app and online social networking portal that helps people find others who share their interest or cause. Toastmasters clubs around the world have been successfully using Meetup to help prospective members find their club. To create a Meetup page for your club, visit Meetup.com for details.

How does Meetup work?

Your club signs up with Meetup, which costs $16.49 per month with a 6-month subscription.

When you are creating the club account, you are prompted to give a description of your club, your meeting dates, and meeting times.

People looking for things to do are asked about their interests. This is how guests and future members will find your club.

The more active your clubs is the more it attracts new Meetup group members with the goal of gaining your club new members.

To make sure your club appears active to potential members, have current members mark that they are attending the next meeting. This shows positive activity, which attracts new people to attend as guests.

The club submits a marketing plan via Google Form link outlining how they will use the app for marketing their club and growing membership to the Club Growth Director.

Continued reimbursement will depend on achievement of the goals outlined in the club's marketing plan. When requesting reimbursement, clubs should submit a progress report via Google Form link on progress attracting new members to the club via Meetup.
