Each quarter we host an all staff meeting and family style lunch at Meetup HQ with select local organizers. It’s a fireside chat moderated by Meetup’s CEO and co-founder, Scott Heiferman.

This past week we heard about the fantastic Meetup journeys of three organizers: Ria from Blood Ink: A Horror Writer’s Collective, Josh from Texpats NYC, and Bridget from the Irish/British Genealogy Meetup group.

This was a quiet moment right before things got started.

Thanks to all three organizers for stepping up, telling their wonderful stories, inspiring their members, and being an inspiration to us too.
