Since CiviCRM works with WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, local CMS user groups have members who would find CiviCRM useful for their non-profit employers and clients.
We decided we would provide a list of user groups to attendees, so if we record the user group contact details below, we should be able to generate the list from this page.
The obvious place to find user groups is on Meetup, which makes it easy to find groups within a 100 mile radius of a given location. The major CMS vendors also have their own communities built around their web sites.
Meetup is discontinuing its "suggested meetup" feature, so it will no longer be possible for CiviCRM users who are attending the camp to post a meetup unless they are organizers for the meetup group. However, you may still be able to contact the organizers and say that you are willing to be an event host for a meetup at the CiviCamp. Another way of promoting the camp is simply to attend a regular meetup and tell other attendees that you're going and why.
Some meetup groups are centrally managed through Meetup Pro. You'll see the same main organizer on related groups, such as "WordPress". Contacting that user about the camp may be more effective than contacting the organizers of multiple groups, or it may be ineffective.
