Nexus has many ways for members to be involved, make friends, learn, and express yourself. The welcome center is composed of Nexus volunteers, sort of like greeters at your favorite store.
Get to know people with similar interests by searching on Groups. Use the search box on the Groups page, or browse through the many pages of groups, to see what's there. There are Nexus groups for various states, cities, countries, ideas of personal expression, hobbies, and many other groups. Get to know people based on what you enjoy, or what you have in common with others.
To find local groups and make friends or chat, Meetup.com is a great place to locate groups or start one. (note, Meetup is not connected to AN). Join Meetup and search on a key word, such as atheist, atheism, skeptics, freethought, to see if there is a local group.
