Thanks Madan. Great to hear the Bangalore meetup will continue.


I've asked the meetup folks if there are any bulk pricing plans available.
I suspect the current set of meetups experiencing issues may be a "tip of
the iceberg" situation we'll encounter as the meetups grow, or as
leadership evolves. My hope is that they have a plan which better covers
groups like ours and we won't have to worry about meetups failing once they
grow too large for the "basic" plan.

Thus far, the best I've been offered is 90 USD per meetup for a six month
membership under their unlimited plan. They claim to have something for
communities such as ours, but no details were given. Under the current
model, all that's required to take ownership is for a current member to
take over the meetup as an organizer and pay the fee.
