Local FAQs

Before starting a new group, we ask that you check our map to see whether one already exists in your community. Groups within 25 kilometers of existing groups will not be supported by NetSquared without a minimum of 10 or more members demonstrating interest in participating.

In addition to holding monthly events, NetSquared organizers have put together a variety of workshops, training programs and camps. We encourage organizers to invent new meeting formats that respond to the needs and opportunities of their local community.

We offer a package of tools and resources to organizers including a free subscription to meetup.com, global visibility on the NetSquared.org site, access to our Organizer’s Handbook, membership in a private email list and regular opportunities to connect with fellow NetSquared organizers worldwide. 

We are excited to get new groups started in cities around the world! If you’re interested in learning more, check out our Net2Local organizers contract and submit an application.
