If you’re excited about effective altruism and want to meet others who are excited about it, too, consider applying to attend an EAGx or local group event in your region. These events are run by local group organizers to help you get acquainted with the basics and get a glimpse into the global effective altruism community.
To apply to attend an event, join the Facebook group for your local group (which you can find on Facebook) and see if they are advertising a local event. EAGx events are also listed on the EA Global events page.
