If you’re excited about effective altruism and want to meet others who are excited about it too, consider applying to an EAGx or attending an EA group event in your region. These events are run by local organizers to help you get acquainted with the basics of EA; they'll also help you learn more about the global effective altruism community.
To find local events, look for groups in your area on Facebook or Meetup and see if they are advertising any events. You can see upcoming EAGx events on the EA Global events page.
