Mile High Horrors- Denver Horror Fans Message Board › Want to Host a Meetup?
I love members to host meetups. All you have to do is have an idea ex: movie viewing, movie discussions, book talks, author signings, tv show viewings, haunted house excursions, happy hour discussions, dvd exchanges, conventions, potlucks...etc.
Once you have your idea choose the date and email an organizer so we can post it for you.
Once your meetup is posted you can edit the description, add the location...add photos. You can change info, edit, or cancel if you have to.
Then you can announce your meetup!
Guidelines for Members who are Hosting a Meetup
Host your Meetup- checklist
To Do before/during your meetup
1. A host MUST attend their meetup - or make arrangements for a substitute host if they can’t attend due to an emergency. You can always email your “YES” attendees if you have to cancel, or email me (Organizer of group) and ask me to do it for you. Please don’t ever just not show up.
2. Give clear and specific descriptions of where you will be at the location and how your guests will spot you in a crowd. (ex. In lobby to right of snacks, pink scarf, blond hair) You also can give them your cell phone if you want- but that’s your choice entirely.
3. Make a note of who has RSVP’d “YES” right before you leave for the location, and bring it with you to the meetup.
4. Be sure you are dressed the way you described it on the meetup so people can spot you in a crowd. Remember, it’s scary to approach a stranger and say “are you so and so”?
5. Arrive ON TIME or EARLY to the location so you can greet your guests.
6. Wait as long as possible for late-comers- that is why you have your list of RSVPs. (If at a movie send the others in and ask them to save you a seat while you wait for the late-comers)
7. At a restaurant ask the server for separate tabs before any orders are placed, OR else be sure the total bill is covered before you leave if all one tab.
8. Make sure all guests are introduced to each other by name.
9. Make an effort of include all guests in your activity or conversation- asking questions is a good way to draw out quiet members.
10. Thank everybody for attending and encourage them to come to future meetups.
11. Pat yourself on the back for a job well done!
To Do after your meetup
1. Edit the attendance and who did not show up so and did not change their rsvp so it can be noted in case this becomes a habit.
2. Inform the organizer if any member violated one of our 7 Golden Rules and needs a reminder.
