 The new 'Organiser' feature in Meetup.com is good. It lets the enthusiastic people in the community organise the Meetups and try to keep an order in the community. This will allow them to officially organise Meetups as well as events.

 

I am a member of Melbourne Technical Certification Meetup Group for few months now and I volunteered to be a organiser of this group. There was no contest as I was the only person who volunteered for this position. I got an email on this weekend saying that I was now the Organiser of Melbourne Tech. Certs. Meetup Group. Below are some of my responsibilities:-

 

*RESPONSIBILITIES*
Organizing a Meetup Group can take as little as a few minutes a month. At minimum, we ask that you:
* Make sure your Meetup venue is ready for your Group
* Get there on time and welcome newcomers
* Respond to members' questions and suggestions.

 

I intend to make this group bit more active than it is at the moment and have more members take part in this group. Below is the brief description of what I see this group as:-

 

" A Group of people who are interested in technical certifications, either pursing it or have achieved it coming together and form a community. The members will be able to share their experiences and knowledge on the subject. Members will be able to give their insights on the technical certifications.

 

There are many technical certifications available like MCSA, MCSE, MCSD.NET,MOUS Certifications,  CCNA, CCNP, CCIE and even security certifications like Security +, SANS Certification and CISSP.

 

Experienced members can be mentors to other members and help them achieve their goal and certification. This group is all about having fun while learning, sucking information and networking with other helpful members."

 

I am hoping to get more members join this group. The webpage for this Meetup is http://techcert.meetup.com/1/ ('1' stands for the fact that this is the first Meetup group for the Technical Certification). So if you guys are in Melbourne, Australia and are interested in sharing your knowledge and certifications, than join us at the Technical Certs. Meetup. The next Meetup is on 21st September at 7:00 P.M. The venue is tentatively decided for now, but let us know if you have better ideas so it can be adjusted.

 

If things go according to planning than I have some great future plans for this group. So join in now and we all can have fun.
