Create a list of groups similar to yours, establish contact with them, write notes on them for your own memory's sake, and so other/future staff have the info.
Remember to offer them things in your meeting, and value in having the relationship, like
- cross-promotion of events (this is the primary reason for having this spreadsheet)
- the possibility of joint events (both organisations get to make an event officially theirs and fully promote it to their members)
- the possibility of joint marketing - e.g. a joint flyer
- willingness to help on their bigger events (human resources)
- knowledge about venues in your cities
- knowledge about speakers
- access to other resources if you have them - e.g. projector, printing budget etc
- knowledge - you've been doing this for years and are happy to offer knowledge

Things you can ask for, in addition to the above:
- free tickets to their paid events for your volunteers - happy volunteers = longer serving and harder working ones. This also allows you to promote their events better
- prizes for your fundraiser events - e.g. free tickets to their events, 1 year free membership to their organisation, merchandise they might have


Proceed to the next worksheet to see a list similar to what EdSkeptics use for tracking other similar organisations.
No doubt your city will have organisations that fit into some of these categories.
