All new groups are submitted for approval based on our groups and events policies before they're live on Meetup. We typically send an email within 24 hours to confirm if your group has been approved. While you're waiting for approval, you can still customize your group and share it on social media.
I can't find my new Meetup group
If you can't find a group you recently created, it may be in review. Groups in the approval process are not searchable on Meetup until they're approved. You can still customize your group and share the group's URL during the approval process. When a group is approved it will be searchable on the Find page.
