It’s now even easier for members to set up and help run Meetup events with the new Event Organizer feature!
Say you have members who are interested in planning, organizing and running Meetups for the group. Organizers can now make any member an ‘Event Organizer’—giving them the ability to create new Meetups, edit existing Meetups, change member RSVPs, take attendance after Meetups and send emails to the group.
We know that you guys have been asking for ‘co-organizers’, the ability to assign ‘roles’, etc.—this is the next step to getting us all there!
In November, we introduced the ‘Event Host’ role and we’re excited to see how groups use the new “Event Organizer” role.

Setting things up:
Step 1: As an Organizer, visit the Group Settings page and click ‘Member roles’. This is a new section that will make it easier to manage which members are Assistant Organizers and Event Organizers.
Step 2: Select the ‘Event Organizer’ role
Step 3: Click ‘Add Member’ to search and select which members you would like to make ‘Event Organizers’
Once added, you can send the new ‘Event Organizer’ an email to let them know about their new role. To see what features an ‘Event Organizer’ has access to, simply click the ‘Learn more’ link.
