Common Problems with Meetup

Email missing from New Group Member trigger#

Meetup hides user's email addresses from being sent over the API, so you will not get this field by default. One option is to add a custom field to the sign up form and include a field for email address there. You'll be able to use that field to map to subsequent actions.
