Adding events to the Sippy Cups Meetup is really easy. Just follow these easy steps and you’ll be a pro before you know it!

Step 1 – Make sure Kelly has added you as an Event Organizer on Meetup.com

Step 2 – Click +SCHEDULE A NEW MEETUP

Step 3 – Fill in the blanks

  • Add a title including location and age range such as (Family), (Ages 1-3) or (Adults Only).
  • Under More details: I like to cut and paste the description from their website or write a little bit myself. I also like to add a link to the event to make it easy for anyone who wants to go to easily get more information.
  • Add the date and time
  • Choose your location and make sure to check the address. Sometimes the place will automatically come up, but the address will be incorrect.

Step 4 – Once you’ve filled in all the blanks and clicked Schedule Meetup it will ask if you’d like to announce the Meetup. The only Meetups I announce are the big mommy hosted/planned ones. If it’s a library or local museum event, I don’t announce it as that will email every member in the group and if we did that for every one we put in the calendar that would be over 300 emails per month. Crazy!

Step 5 – If you have added the event, but do not plan to attend, please change your RSVP to No.

Step 6 – If this is a repeating event you can click repeating or simply click Copy this Meetup and change the date. Both are relatively easy.

Thanks again for volunteering to make this group so awesome. I couldn’t do it without you!!
