There are 45 people signed up for the Meetup this evening in Los Altos.

When you walk into a room of 45 like-minded people, what do you do?

What should you do?

Greet everyone and get them to talking, maybe ask a question to get the ball rolling.

Share a small story of yourself about the topic of the meeting?

Have a presentation prepared, but also be ready to wing it?

What is the topic? I think it helps to have some sort of focus for discussion.

Have coffee and water available, maybe even cookies--store baked are fine.

This is good advice for the leader.

But what about the attendees? What should they do? How should they prepare?

@Belew I would try to come prepared to listen, and interact with others. Be prepared to learn, take notes, and think about what is happening.

Read up on the topic, look up information.

Whoa, maybe there's too much information! Then I would look for who the sources are, credentials, that kind of thing.

I would try to find out about the speaker, who they are and what their general philosophy is. That usually shows up in their writings.

You guys are too much fun!

Charge them all $100 and take a few days off work, playing golf springs to mind... if not that what @cm_hazelwood says ...

@Rev I have attended several training weekends for various kinds of things... Some are more fun than others.
