Past meetups[edit]

Purpose[edit]

Wiki meetups are opportunities to make friends with other Wikipedians, discuss Wikipedia-related topics, and exchange knowledge and experiences from the universe that is Wikipedia. Edit-a-thons are a type of meetup where Wikipedians edit in a shared space, perhaps articles related to a certain topic or in collaboration with a sponsoring organization.

Spreading the Word[edit]

You may have been contacted because your name was on the Wikipedia:Meetup/LA/Invites list or perhaps because you had contributed to one or more L.A.-specific articles.

Help us spread the word by adding people to our "mailing list" that you suspect may be interested, such as Wikipedians that have contributed to very L.A.-specific articles.
