This meetup group was designed for everyone to feel comfortable joining and participating in events. So here are a few ground rules. Failure to abide by the rules can result in you being removed from the group without warning.
Do NOT email members of our group you don't know asking them personal questions or out on dates. It's rude and makes people feel uncomfortable. If you want to hang out and make new friends then you actually need to come to events. Our group isn't match.com... it's a social group.
When you are at an event and someone tells you they're not interested or are in a relationship, respect their privacy. We encourage members to make friends and hang out together outside of meetups but it needs to be mutually desired.
Please do not join this group just so you can solicit traffic for a website, business, other social group, etc through spam type emails. If you have an event you think would be great for our group to attend email me and I will look into bringing out our group to your event. Active members are welcome to talk about events or organizations at our events they are affiliated with if appropriate for the group (i.e., I've opened a new coffee shop, found this great new restaurant) but make sure it doesn't become excessive, feels like you're "recruiting" them, and makes them feel uncomfortable.
If you're ever uncomfortable with another member's behavior (or any 3rd party) at events or on the website, let the organizer know right away. Please give them a chance to fix the situation quickly, anonymously, and allow them to make sure it doesn't happen again. If you're the party causing the problem you may be removed without warning.
Every one of our events has a designated "wingman" for all members of the group. It's typically the host for the event but if it's someone else it will be posted in the event description.
If you're ever at an event and anyone in our group (or even outside of our group) is making you feel uncomfortable in any way you can text or call the wingman at any time and they will come "rescue" you from that situation.
If you RSVP yes for an event, please try to attend the event or update your RSVP as soon as possible if your plans change. We understand that things come up at the last minute. But simply no showing up often will cause a problem.
On events where the group has to make reservations you need to give a 24 hour notice if possible. If you can't do that make sure the host in charge of the events knows you won't be there. It makes our group look bad when we reserve a table for 20 and only 4 people show up as an example.
If you RSVP "YES" for events requiring the group to make an advance payment (tickets, seats, etc) and you do not pay for it, you will be REMOVED from the group. We understand things come up at the last minute and the more notice you give us the better. Our policy is to do everything possible to find someone else to take your ticket in that situation... in the rare case we can't find anyone we will require you to pay for the unused ticket. Do not expect the organizers or host to lose money in that situation.
Any member who does not pay his/her bill at any function(dinner bill or bar tab, for example) is subject to removal from the group. If you ever forget to pay for something get in contact with the organizer as soon as possible.
Please note these rules may be modified or new rules added at any time. Our goal is to provide the best environment so that everyone is comfortable and has a great time. If any member is doing things to affect other members experience not described above you may be removed from the group at the discretion of any person on our leadership team.
One last thing: I know there's a lot of rules above but they allow everyone to enjoy our group and it's why we have the best social group in Charlotte. We don't mess around with "bad behavior" and it's very rare we have an issue with a member.
