My suggestion is to do a quick group search for your area and see if there is a group close by. If so, join it and make a post introducing yourself as a new member in the area. Check to see if there are any weekly/monthly meetups planned.

If no groups in your area, you can always do a search of people in your area and send them messages. Ask them if they have any meetings planned. If you are able to host meetings, or have suggestions on a place to meet, you can start your own and message other members in your area about it.

If you are planning on traveling, do a quick check in the area you will be in. Try to get as much information about the groups as possible, and you can also put some surf requests in. Be fun, be outgoing, and just meet people!
