You may have noticed the new little box at the top of the forum page. Ever since the first Expo ’74, we have been inspired by what happens when Max users get together face to face. We’re hoping that we can facilitate more of this sharing with Meetup Everywhere. Don’t forget to take pictures. http://www.meetup.com/C74Max/
If you’d like to start a new Meetup, go to your city’s community page (or create a new location). From there you can click one of the links that says "Got one?" and add a venue or date. Or you can just join and wait for someone else to come up with a venue/date.
