Interview: Vanessa, Organizer of the Cooking Chicks
Vanessa Moses is the Organizer of The Cooking Chicks Meetup Group in Chicago: with hundreds of members, dozens of successful past Meetups, and an impressive list of Sponsors, we figured she might know a trick or two about running a successful Meetup.
Vanessa graciously answered a few questions for us about her Meetup Group, finding the right Sponsors, and her plans to take The Cooking Chicks to the next level:
How did your Meetup Group start? How do you help build the momentum for your Group in the beginning?
Our Group started on Meetup in March of 2010. I think it was our name for starters—really honing in on women who love to cook—and the immediate partnership we build with Chicago’s Kenmore Live Studio, where we hosted our first Meetup.
