I just got introduced to these last week. I found meetups in my area for film / media production studios and a voice over group. I want to make sure I have a chance to get connected with some of the local production companies from a marketing/sales perspective, and peer VO support is always nice. The next meetup, for the group I joined, is in early March and they show who is attending. I am optimistic and excited about the opportunity.
Also, there is a small/nominal membership fee for one of the groups. I would love to hear experience from folks who are already leveraging this as well.
All the best!
My group is nearly four years old, meeets monthly in Dallas. Great for networking and also, members say that in 2013 they want maximum opps for read copy at mic and be critiqued by experts. Great networking too.
Drop by when you're in town and join us online, become official member, if you can join for real..

Hello Ryan and Bettye,
Meetups are great. As you've both noted they are great ways to network and to meet people not only in the voice over world but in all businesses.
Onward and Upward!
Have a great week,
