– A passion for career breaks & extended travel [if you are currently in the planning stages, you can still host the meetups]
– Note: Hosting the local meetups is separate from hosting our Anchor event in October. There will be a separate application process if you wish to host that.
Read the rules – Know your responsibilities – Understand what you are committing to


– Local meetup must be branded Meet, Plan, Go! If you wish to co-brand with another organization or company you must get our permission first.
– You can not charge for the event nor you will be reimbursed for any expenses you incur.
– You are not allowed to secure sponsors or giveaways without our permission.

– Select meetup venue (many meetups occur in private areas of bars)
– Meetups can be casual or topic focused.  If topic focused, you will need approval from Meet, Plan, Go and you may need to secure your own speakers.  We may also occasionally provide you with topics and speakers.
