I don't think Dues will reduce no-shows. I'd gladly pay double if half was going to charities. If any money does go to charities, you should make clear that you won't be giving receipts for tax purposes.

Two guys walk into a bar.
The third guy ducks.

The fee would have to vary a little for the events as some would certainly be worth more or have a higher cost associated with them.  Alternatively, instead of a per event fee, charge "dues" or whatever you'd like to call it) and that goes towards the different events for the year.

May I suggest you make the fee non-refundable?  Too many headaches dealing with refunds.

Thanks!

Money is a great motivator. A fee would for sure make me remember to attend an event. Seems too many people on Meetups that are free, and who RSVP, most time do not show up or even have the courtesy to change there RSVP to - not going.

I think a modest attendance fee is appropriate....

Hello History Lovers,
We're looking for your help. We have a vision to make Detroit Drunken Historical Society one of the most compelling ways to learn about Detroit history.
So, we are trying to constantly improve our events.
One of the questions we're considering is whether we should charge for events in order to better predict attendance and to guarantee members a spot.
Would you please let us know your thoughts?
Here is a quick, 6-question anonymous survey:
