    It's very likely that I will be late to this event (6.30/6.45-ish or a bit later), due to a work deadline. Is this o.kay?

    Hi Group,

    If someone decides to cancel, please ping me ([masked]) since I'm trying to get my friend on the list for this event. Not sure how I'd be notified if a space opens up since there are two lists - and eventbrite, but please still let me know and I will contact the organizers to see what's possible. Thanks!

    Hi Victoria! I just met with Kristin and she had such lovely things to say about you. Question: I seem to be registered on meetup for the event tonight but not Eventbrite. Would you please check on my registration status?

  • Victoria N.

    Hello everyone! Registration on Eventbrite is now completely full, and we will only be able to admit attendees that have already registered through the Eventbrite website because of the room capacity. If you registered, but are unable to make it, please cancel your registration through Eventbrite right away so we can open up spots. Looking forward to seeing you and sorry to anyone who was not able to register. We definitely hope to plan more events like this in the future! Any other questions? Email us at [masked]. Thanks! -IDEX YPG Leadership Team

      Hi Victoria, do we need to bring the Eventbrite ticket in any form? Just moved to the area so I will probably just download the app if so. Thank you!

      May 28, 2013

    • Victoria N.

      Hi Nora! No, you won't need the Eventbrite ticket. We will have your name at the door. Thanks and see you tonight!
