One of the most crucial pieces of any networking group is the leader. Just like with anything else, in a networking group, everything starts at the top.
I always encourage people to meet with the organizer of the group and first find out what he/she is about. If you're planning on attending a new group, you should be able to contact the organizer and let him/her know that while at the event, you would like to just take a few minutes of his/her time and introduce yourself.
