Greetings Soulsters!

Welcome to the best group on meetup--Art N Soul II. For those that have a little bit of soul, and like to stir it up a bit...you've come to the right place. Ok...we may be a little bias, but we'll leave that up to you to decide for yourself.

We believe in quality over quantity....we like to keep our group very close-knit. We try to create a platform for connecting mature and progressive like-minded men and women in the Atlanta Area. There are no "cliques" in this group...and we don't tolerate DRAMA. This is a place where like-minded professionals can meet new friends, mix, mingle and network.

Work Hard! Play Harder!! That's our motto.  We all lead busy lives, but you only live once...so let's make the best out of every experience. There's a diverse group of activities in this group for everyone. From Happy Hours to White Water Rafting...to Sporting Events....even traveling across the country. You'll never be bored with us!

To become a member, we only have a few rules.....

1. Incomplete Profiles are not allowed.  This helps in relationship building--we strive to be more than just another meetup group....but more of a second family. *If you have an unanswered questions, it will not be approved. Your introduction and Interesting Fact are not the same question. Your introduction is what appears under your photo when you rsvp to an event.You can update this at any time.

Example of Interesting Fact: "I've been skydiving 3 times"

Example of Intro: "Hi my name is Art. I just moved from Cali and am looking for people who like to travel."

2. Fake Names/Nick Names are not allowed.  At a minimum, we ask that you provide your First name (not initials). Remember in Kings of Comedy when Cedric talked about calling a grown man "Delicious". Yeah....we're not trying to do that. If you want to put a nickname somewhere else in your profile...that's fine. But please don't advertise in your screen names. You can add all of that in your intro. We understand some people don't want to include last names for security reasons, and that is perfectly fine.

3. You must have a photo of yourself in order for your profile to be accepted. Logo profiles, cartoon images and such aren't allowed as your main photo.  We require that your profile picture is a clear visual photo of who you are just as a safety measure for our group members. It does not have to be your main photo, but one of your pictures has to be of you. *If your membership is pending or was declined, this could be why*

4. Our members pay membership dues as a means of providing an enhanced membership experience. We provide a lot of perks for our members.  If you feel that this group is not a good fit for you, we will gladly refund your money within 2 weeks of you joining. Dues are $12 annually.  That's only $1 a month. We are not about making money off of anyone, everything we take in, is put right back into the group. * As of 12/2--Meetup uses a new 3rd party for membership dues (we no longer use PayPal). It only allows us to collect monthly or annually. So, if your are new (or you're currently a member with dues about to expire) it will charge you the annual fee. Otherwise, it restricts what you can access on meetup and will automatically delete you after 30 days when you don't pay. *If you're having problems RSVP'ing...it may be because your trial period has expired and you are pending deletion. If you are removed multiple times, you will be banned for a minimum of 6 months.

5. We encourage our members to become ACTIVE and RSVP to meetups that they plan to attend. "Active" is defined as attending an event at least once per quarter.  Sometimes, when you're involved in a bunch of meetups, you tend to forget what you have RSVPd for, so we suggest using a calendar so that you don't forget. If we see your profile is inactive for more than 30 days, we may send reach out to you just to make sure you're doing ok. We know sometimes life gets in the way. However, if it's more than 3 months, we have the right to remove you and return your remaining dues. Please do not  RSVP to those that you don't plan or don't want to attend. It helps us to cut down on the amount of emails that are sent to the organizer or host of the event.  We take RSVP's very serious as we're making reservations with local establishments representing Art N Soul and Art N Soul II.  So when you find that you're not able to make it to a particular meetup we ask that you update your RSVP. You are given 3 "No Shows" before your membership will be revoked. However, keep in mind some member vacation trips do not allow you to have no shows. *If you are a No-Show on your very first meetup, you may be removed and any dues will be refunded. Unfortunately, due to the number of people in both chapters, we cannot send warnings. Besides, this should just be a common courtesy to provide to whoever is hosting the meetup.

6. Each member is encouraged to "host" at least one meetup. Don't stress over this.  This is as simple as suggesting a meetup and being the POC for that particular event. It takes the pressure off always having the same 2-3 people posting events. We encourage ALL ideas. There are no stupid suggestions. And it also gives those that are a little shy the chance to step out of the box a little. Remember, we are more like a "family"...we will never leave anyone out there on a limb by themselves. Hosting also has it's perks....there are special trips and events just for these members.

The success of our group is membership driven. The more involved each member is, the more you will get out of this experience. We have different member categories, which encourages our members to participate. We also have (optional) monthly conference calls that we encourage everyone to participate in....with the new platform we have, it helps ease that fear of attending your first meetup and not knowing anyone"

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
