As well as meeting online, ALLi members also connect offline in their own local areas. We use MeetUp.com to facilitate these local groups.
If you are interested in facilitating a local ALLi group, here are the steps.
Drop us an email to let us know, and connect with any other member in your area who might already be meeting or have expressed interest in a meetup.
Set up the group on MeetUp.com (we will pay the fee), using the London Group as your model. Please follow the text on the page with as little modification as possible. We find groups who meet monthly are most successful. Announce the group on our online member forums to gather interest.
Note how payment works. ALLi groups are for ALLi members only. Non-members may attend once off, at a cost of 10USD/GBP. If they join that evening, the money is deducted from membership. If they do not, you as organiser keep the tenner.
Use your affiliate ID to receive 30% of joining fee for anybody who joins ALLi as a result of your efforts.
Make contact with local writers groups and organisations and tell them about your Meetup. You can download all you need here.
MeetUp.com has lots of tips for running a successful group.
