Здравствуйте из Seattle, WA!

Is there anyone else here who has interest in forming a conversation group?

It's better to say Привет из Сиэтла. They never say здравствуйте из...

It’s not better, it’s the only way :)

good feedback! I was told Привет was more casual and not used to address people you don't know. Thanks for clarifying!

Здравствуйте is a verb in the imperative mood. Привет is a noun.

It is so if one deals with one-on-one conversation. Usually you don't say "Привет" for strangers (unless you and they are rather young).

However, "Приветствуем гостей фестиваля" or "Я вас приветствую из Сиэттла" are completely neutral and not improper (the last one is a little bit clumsy, however - "Привет из Сиэттла" is fine for the web, newspapers and like).

In my opinion, a conversation group should have some topics to discuss them, so could you please give more information about yourself and your interests.

that's very smart. So you know what to practice and prepare! Let me think.

Да, но в Сиэтле, хотя я никогда там не был, воображаю, что, когда ты выходишь на улицы, разговоры будут на английском, а не на русском))
