Starting a Local Game Design Community

About three years ago, I became a founding member of a local meetup group. We called ourselves, simply, Memphis Game Developers. There were just three of us at the first meeting, but since then, we have grown into a large, 500+ member community, we have our own self-sustaining game dev co-work specializing in VR, and we are sponsored by Unity.  Join us to discuss how to create a local grassroots community of game developers and the benefits of such a community.
