In addition to the primary organizer (the person that pays for a group’s subscription), there are three roles on a group’s leadership team: co-organizers, assistant organizers, and event organizers. You can have as many leadership team members as you need.
To support the primary organizer, each role has different levels of access to a group’s organizer tools.
Here’s what they’re able to do:
Everyone on a group's leadership team can use the event check-in feature.

- Click the Three dots button next to the person you want to appoint.

Every event is assigned a one-time event host. This is not a leadership team position, but the event host does have access to manage details of the event. An event host can:
- Manage attendees
- Contact attendees
- Close or open RSVPs
- Edit event settings in the event scheduler
- Cancel event
- Delete event
- Check in attendees on the Meetup for Organizers App
The event's creator is assigned as host by default but this role can be assigned to any member of the group.
