WIO Local Chapters

** Community response has been *awesome* but we’re running the risk of having a lot of micro chapters without first having a larger structure. Anyone that wants to create a WIO Local chapter is encouraged to join up here first: https://www.facebook.com/groups/wioleaders/ so that we can all talk about the different ins and outs of different group formats. :)

Want to join the local chapter of “WIO”? Below are the contacts for our local chapters. We meet for meetups, swap childcare, etc.  If you want to start a local chapter in a state where there is currently no local chapter, comment below. I will not publish your email address.  If you want to join up with your local chapter comment below and let me know which chapter you’re interested in.

We’re going to start big and go by state (within the USA) and by country (outside of the USA) and then once we find patterns we’ll go smaller and localize more to region.

California Chapter

Colorado Chapter

Massachusetts Chapter

Michigan Chapter

Missouri Chapter

    I would happily coordinate WIO West Michigan (could be all of Michigan, but Michigan is kind of big, so thinking West Michigan is more doable.)
