Advice for setting up a local meet-up group
Hi all -
A few of us were planning to start a P2PF/Commons Transition meet-up in Edinburgh. I was wondering if anyone had done this before elsewhere and/or had any advice to offer? So far it hasn't really been announced, and is in very early stages of planning. I got so far as creating a Loomio group P2P Scotland and a proposed initial date.
Beyond that I simply wanted to announce it and seek the general blessings from P2P people here - for example, is it OK to use the P2P logos and the name, etc? Is there any general support you can offer to local groups?
Note, I say Edinburgh, but it might be branded as more of a Scotland-wide affair, since the few people interested so far are distributed outside Edinburgh (Glasgow and Falkirk/Edinburgh I believe). This larger catchment area obviously means there may be more people who might register their interest, but then poses problems as the physical meet-ups need to be in one place or another.
