SSC Meetups Survey 2019
If you have attended meetups in more than one city, please answer for the most recent one / the one you’re most likely to attend now. If it’s important to you to represent multiple meetups, please fill out this form twice.

Data will not be released publicly because it would be too easy to identify individuals and I neglected to include a question about releasing people's answers, but I am planning to share aggregate statistics and lessons learned publicly. I will also probably reach out to individual meetup organizers if there's significant data on what people want to see from their groups. If you have objections to any of this, please let me know in the freeform response box at the end of the survey.

Conclusion
Some people have expressed a desire to have a way to communicate with people from other meetup groups, in order to share ideas for meetup activities, ask for help with problems, collaborate on projects, and plan joint meetups with nearby cities, among other things.
