Every club has the opportunity to have a presence on Meet Up!  All VPPR's are encouraged to participate by developing and managing a page for their club. Meetup is the world's largest network of local groups. Meetup makes it easy for anyone to organize a local group or find one of the thousands already meeting up face-to-face. More than 9,000 groups get together in local communities each day, each one with the goal of improving themselves or their communities.

For those clubs that already have their own account, this will be additional exposure.
