Same issue with the Paramount Tall Club <http://www.tallclubchicago.org>.
We did meetup.com in parallel for a while.
It requires a lot of additional workflow hassles and learning for our
content editor, who does just fine with the MoinMoin wiki I setup.
(I do need to update it -- but it has run fairly well for ~9 years !)
Meetup.com is slick -- the calendar and reminders are nice -- but it is
expensive for a non-profit social club and if you ever quit -- someone
obnoxious could take it over.
Because of this -- we also used meetup.com as a parallel "feeder".
I just did a search and I see several packages to sync meetup to a django
I'll have to check them out !
