New Feature: Modify Meetup Group settings on your smartphone
Your Meetup Group’s settings aren’t static, and neither are you. Now you can update your settings on the go using your mobile phone.
Tidy up your Meetup Group’s topics, spruce up your description, or edit your new member message anywhere you can access mobile web.
These options are currently available on mobile web. They’re coming soon to your Android and iOS apps.
This is a great way to get out hiking with others … We want people to feel like they are part of the group, even if they are new to the club.

Yep, we are all invited to dress up like Zombies and take an eerily fun nighttime walk through Warner Park this weekend.
Boasting more than 200 members, Sturman formed the Meetup last year as part of an ongoing quest to spread awareness on what can be done with farming on a small scale.
We’re excited to announce that Meetup is acquiring Dispatch!
Dispatch is a startup that’s reinventing group email communication.
It all started two years ago when cousins Nick Stamas and Jesse Lamb met Alex Godin at the NY Tech Meetup. Together they formed Dispatch and set out to build the best way for groups to communicate.
Then, this summer, Alex met Scott Heiferman (Meetup CEO) in an elevator at the Personal Democracy Forum, and Scott invited Alex to demo Dispatch to the team at Meetup HQ.
We loved it, we really liked them, and it clicked: What if Meetup and Dispatch joined forces to solve one of the biggest opportunities facing Meetup Groups: How can we spark even stronger communities by making group communication much better?
At Meetup, we believe that a community isn’t a community if people don’t talk offline. That’s why we use the internet to get people off the internet. But we also believe that a community can be much stronger if people talk online too.
So, Nick, Jesse, and Alex will bring their passion and experience to Meetup and continue on their mission by reinventing group communication for millions of members of local Meetup Groups around the world. Stay tuned for the beginning of their impact on Meetup communities in 2014.
New Feature: Better Waitlists
We’ve heard from people that Manual Waitlists were confusing and lead to members getting unexpected alerts they couldn’t control. So we’ve made them a whole lot better.
As of today, we’ve launched a new feature that simplifies how Waitlists work. Automatic Waitlists will stay the same, but Manual Waitlists will be replaced by the new Notify Me feature.
With Notify Me, we’re getting rid of the guesswork and simplifying Waitlists.
Notify Me lets interested members receive alerts when slots open up. Your members will never miss their opportunity to RSVP to a full Meetup again.
Organizers can now choose to use Waitlists (formerly Automatic Waitlists) or let interested members sign up for notifications on open slots with Notify Me.
Members will never miss out on a chance to RSVP again!
