Nomad Groups – Local, Regional & Global
In addition to Chiang Mai Buddy’s own Nomad Think Tank [found on this site] and the Chiang Mai Nomad Social Responsibility Group [sponsored by Chiang Mai Buddy], there are a number of local groups convening regularly to discuss issues of concern to the Digital Nomad Community. The following represents a growing list of Nomad Groups locally, nationally, and globally.
Chiang Mai Digital Nomads

Chiang Mai Online Society
We created this group for entrepreneurs and people who make a living online. Everyone is welcome to come share and learn. We encourage people to help each other by holding them accountable and encouraging them to motivate and to inspire, all in the spirit of making the online experience better. We also encourage social meetup, so hopefully we can get some events started. You can use this group as a gateway to expand your social world.

Chiang Mai SEO Community
-SEO is a lonely business…but it doesn’t have to be. We happen to live in one of the most highly concentrated cities in the world for SEOs. Let’s take advantage of that. This group was created as a place for Chiang Mai’s google wizards to organize, share and congregate together.

Chiang Mai Travel Bloggers
-To keep this group focused, we only allow members with travel blogs who are in Chiang Mai, regularly come through or have a history here of helping other travel bloggers. For questions and help around town, meet-ups and general Chiang Mai travel blogging shenanigans. This is NOT a group to post your travel blogs unrelated to Chiang Mai. This is only for local get togethers and help around town, not pitching your travel products. Please do not send a request if you do not live in Chiang Mai or have a travel blog.

No self promotions or blog posts shared here. This is a secret group – only intended for those serious about their trade, developing their own skills and sharing their knowledge… and having fun, obv – but let’s keep the party chats to the 300 other social driven Chiang Mai Facebook groups.
Chiang Mai Digital Jobs
-Are you after a Digital Job? Do you need someone to join your team? This group was created for the purpose of posting and finding digital jobs in the Chiang Mai area.

Digital Nomads Thailand
-This group’s goal is to help you make the most of Thailand as a digital nomad: share tips, tastes, advice, job opportunities and more. Thailand is one of the most popular countries to become (or “live as”) a digital nomad. Chiang Mai, Bangkok, Ko Lanta, Ko Tao, Ko Phangan, Phuket…the list of places with co-working locations where you can do this is overwhelming. Co-working spaces are just one option, however. Decent 3G networks are making it possible to be based anywhere signal is strong enough.
Bangkok Digital Nomads

Irrelevant posts will be deleted and the poster may be removed from the group without warning.

Location Independent Change Makers
-Are you tired of finding these “How to make 100k in 5 months” type of articles? Why is it that so few people write articles about how to build a product that genuinely helps 100 000 people instead? There is unfortunately a lack of such type of content in our nomadic communities and this group will hopefully compensate for this. There is no monetization plan behind this group. The objective of the group is simply to keep ourselves inspired and educated so that we can not only optimize our activities based on financial metrics but also on environmental and social ones.

Digital Nomad Eco-Village

Location independence is the freedom to work and live from wherever you want. It is a lifestyle born out of a desire to be an architect of your own destiny and to have the ability to live life on your terms. The traditional way of living and working is no longer the only way. Nowadays, you have alternatives. You have the possibility to experience life and all its different elements more than ever before.
