Three friends and I launched a new Meetup group called Chicago DIY WEB Networkers just about two months ago. The membership is now over 60 with several meetings taking place. The group’s focus will be on the needs of small business people and the self employed.
More personal than the Web or large presentations, it is face to face. There is a monthly presentation and discussion, smaller informational round table Q&A sessions and more is planned for the future.
If you are in the area and would like more information, please visit http://meetup.com/chicago-diy-web-networkers/ It is meant for people who want to start Websites or those who want to take control and e-market themselves (do it yourself).
There is no charge to register for Meetup or to join the group.
