If you decide to close your Meetup group, all group history and information will be completely removed from the platform. This includes photos, discussions, and member lists. We encourage organizers to let members know ahead of time about a group closure. That way, everyone has time to preserve the memories and friendships they’ve made along the way. Alternatively, organizers should consider nominating another group member to take their place as organizer. Then interested members will have the chance to continue meeting up.
While Meetup does not accommodate exporting group information, members and organizers are welcome to save content manually.
- For written content, such as group or Meetup descriptions, welcome messages, discussions, and mailing list messages, we recommend copying and pasting the content into a document, either onto a cloud storage program like Google Drive or into a file on your own computer.
- For photos, you can download them or take screenshots from a group album and save them to your computer or device.
