Over the past few months I have been working on making it to local meetups here in the Kansas City area that fit interests I have in hopes of meeting kool new people, make contacts, and just have a good time.

I am happy to say so far I have been pretty successful and wanted to share will all my local readers.  If you have any other meetups you know of please feel free to contact me or leave a comment for myself and others with a link or any information on meetup places and times.

SocialMediaClub – KC Edition
So far we have had 2 meetings and right now it is in the early/planning stages but I have already met some new people and we have begun to start talking about future events with speakers and demonstrations.  If you have any interest in social media from user to content provider to developer make sure you check it out.

Kansas City Podcasters
This meetup is for podcasters as well as fans of podcasting or those wanting to get into podcasting.  I have been toying with the idea of doing one and have dabbled in it a bit but again just a fun group to get togather with and talk about whatever be it podcasting or something tech based.

Meetings usually take place on the 2nd Saturday of the month at Johnny’s Tavern on 119th street.

Geek Out Friday
Geek Out is the newest meetup I have been going to and it is pretty much just geeks getting togather and talking about whatever geek topic we want…could be web related, tech related, gaming, ect.  Pretty much just a place for geeks to hang out.

Takes place at Daily Dose at 135th and Quivera on Friday nights from 11ish to 2am (closing time).

Do you go to any of these?  What are your thoughts on them?  Have another meetup you would like to share with those in the kc area?  Feel free to add a comment to the discussion and let us know any details.

My main reason behind this post is to let those in the community know about different ways they can meet others with similar interests.

social media club

This morning we had the 2nd meetup for SocialMediaKC which is a meetup for anyone in the Kansas City area who are interested in any aspect of the social media scene which as you get to look into it has a wide range of subjects/topics/areas.

Right now the group is growing and contacts are being made. This month we talked about possible locations for future events so that others maybe not close to the Overland Park area can attend as well as thoughts on special guests and subjects that could be presented at future events.

If you are someone who is the social media arena, has a product related to social media and would love to come speak with the group please feel free to contact ed roberts or zena weist and they can speak with you on getting something setup.

Interested in the format of the meetups or the environment? Here is a little video I took to kinda give you an idea:

social media club

Sorry couldnt resist the Fight Club reference for a subject but the first rule of Social Media Club is to spread the word about Social Media Club.

This morning I met with some local (kansas city metro area) bloggers, tweeters, developers, and overall geeks to discuss getting a Social Media Club started in the Kansas City area to help promote everything from the social side of the web, the tech industry in the area, developers, and the list goes on and on.

Just from the small group we had for the first meeting to discuss just ideas and thoughts I have to say I am really excited to see the idea grow and of course meet all the geeks who would attend the events.

If you are in the KC area make sure you keep checking out socialmediakc.com for news of events and links to resources for the area.
