Weekly networking group. It costs $149 for 52 lunchs, but not cover the cost of food. You are sent to one of 30 reatuantss each week with 4-5 people. Steve Rose is the organizer: firstname.lastname@example.org. There is an intro lunch at Café Martin where Steve & Barbara are (co-organizers) and there are anywhere from 6-12 people at this intro lunch. It is half new people and half old people. I can attend with you if you want to try it out.
- Santa Fe Green Chamber
This is like the chamber of commerce with monthly meetings, but geared towards green. They have a monthly event called Green Drinks.

They meet on Mondays at Zia Diner. Check her website for a schedule in Santa Fe.
There are a lot of specialized meetups. It is a good idea to do a search for those relevant to your industry.
