I've been telling you about #IndieMeetup, and today, I have more news. We've got 24 cities registered! Not all of them have locations set, pending registered participants, so if you are planning to join us, remember to RSVP for your city at our MeetUp Page!

Indie Business worldwide meetup

This is a super exciting way to start 2012, sharing and networking with like-minded Indies in your own local area. The largest participating cities, listed below, have definitive locations for their events. Click through as indicated to see registered participants, and to RSVP yourself!

Several other cities are registered as well, and they are looking for your RSVP, after which time they can secure a location in your area! Among them are Chattanooga, TN (hosted by Ginger Moore of NEOS Creations), Hillsboro, OH (near Cincinnati and hosted by Mary Humphrey of Annie's Goat Hill Soaps) and Cosby, TN (near Gatlinburg and hosted by Cynthia Johnston of Moonmaid Botanicals).

Hosting and/or attending an event like this is a great way to promote your own business in your local community.

What perfect timing for the stars to align for you, in your own local and supportive community, right at the beginning of a New Year! I hope you won't miss this chance to kick of 2012 in the company of the people and ideas who can help you make it the best year ever!

How far are you from Hillsboro, where Mary is hosting?

Next time, you can host in Cleveland if you'd like!

Looking forward to seeing you too Melissa!

Are the meetups initiated by the local IBN Director?

They are in cities where we have a director.

If we don't have a director in your city, or if the director cannot host, then anyone can host.

Where are you? Would you like to host, Kara?

Let me know!


Hi dM,


I'm in Baltimore. Were there any specifics to hosting the meetup?
