EA Madison members get together at least monthly to learn about and discuss EA ideas and stay connected to the EA community. You can find us on Meetup.com, Facebook, and/or join our Google Group.

EA Madison was founded in Oct 2014 by Gina Stuessy & Ben West, and 25% of the credit for our effort was sold in Jan 2016 (impactpurchase.org).
