Start Your Own Chapter!


We want to make it easy for others to get a local networking event up and running. We don’t want you to worry about coming up with a name, logo etc. so we are now accepting chapter applications! If you are interested in starting a chapter in your city, please contact us.

$275 One-Time Chapter Fee Includes:

  • Use of the name, for example “The Made In Mind Social Sioux Falls”
  • Use of the logo with your city name attached (we will send files to you)
  • Access to business card and sponsorship brochure templates (blank, packaged InDesign files will be supplied)
  • WordPress theme to match other chapter sites (you are responsible for domain, hosting and installation) 
    • Includes the Genesis Framework for FREE (valued at $60 which is needed to run the theme). However, if you’d like access to  support and forums, we recommend that you purchase your own copy.
  • Redirect from to your chapter site and your chapter listed on the main site
  • An e-book on how to get started: The Meetup Guide: How to Create, Plan and Host Your Own Local Event Series (a $47 value)
  • Add-ons:
    • For an additional $200 fee we can install WordPress, Genesis and the theme for you (you are still responsible for domain and hosting)
