WordPress Regular Meetups
Except for WordCamps, monthly local WordPress meetups likely generate the highest annual WordPress user event-hours of any category of Automattic events.
- Wisconsin WordPress Upcoming Regular Meetups
- Next meetup not listed yet, http://www.meetup.com/Appleton-WordPress/; most recent meetup was May 13, 2016
- Central Wisconsin / Stevens Point
- Next meetup is July 22, 2016, http://www.meetup.com/Central-Wisconsin-WordPress-Meetup/
- Next meetup is August 3, then September 7, 2016, http://www.meetup.com/Milwaukee-WordPress-MeetUp/
- Hmmm?? Last meetup appears to have been in 2013, but people still sign up for the group. A July 6, 2016, site visit showed signups on July 1, June 24, and June 13. Seems to indicate interest but lack of leadership for event organizaton.
- Midwest Meetups
- Chicago — see http://www.meetup.com/topics/wordpress/us/il/chicago/ for a meeting near you in the Chicago metro area
