Stellar Community Meetup: Guidelines


Thanks for your interest in starting a Stellar meetup in your city. Events and meetups around the world are instrumental in furthering Stellar’s mission, driving new thoughts and ideas into the Stellar ecosystem, and helping to foster a strong sense of community, no matter where you happen to reside.

Let’s get started!

Please use this page as a guide for starting a meetup in your city. We will work to improve this page over time based on your feedback so please do not hesitate to let us know if there is something missing. We encourage and fully support Stellar branded community meetups, which is why we have put together the following documentation to help guide you:

Meetup Organizer(s)

  • Designate 2-3 other Stellar community members to help you with the event logistics, setup and promotion.
  • Utilize Stellar’s online channels (Slack, Twitter, et. all) to find other local/regional owners that can get involved and help with the meetup.
  • Most importantly, make sure you have the time to take on the responsibility of leading the group. We’ve found that successful meetup groups have consistent, local leadership and representation.

Content/Development

  • Specify the intended audience and focus of the group: Is this for developers, those interested in blockchain or digital money, financial access and/or financial education? Make sure that people know what they are signing up for!
  • Once you’ve decided on an audience, create an agenda that would be interesting to attendees. If this is the first meetup in your city, consider as an initial agenda item a discussion around the goal or focus of the group. This way you get buy-in and feedback early on from the community.
