I agree with what Peter Jeremy said. I don't mind there being a supplementary meetup page on the chapter site, but it seems rather superfluous, redundant and unnecessary. At present only 22 (or less than half) current members have accounts which means that only a very small number of Australian Wikimedians can even edit the Wiki, so it strikes me as very redundant to be organising anything but official chapter events on the website and I think it is better to continue to focus on organising regular meetups which aren't chapter events on the WP meetup pages (or perhaps meta).
