Durham 20s/30s Active Gamers Message Board › PLEASE READ: Updated AG Meetup Policies
Chapel Hill, NC
Hope everyone's summer is going wonderfully! I know I've enjoyed every meetup we'd had so far this summer and look forward to the upcoming ones!
I just wanted to send out a reminder about the very few policies that our meetup group has with the addition of one new one (coming to a meetup without being on the RSVP list). Please take a minute to review them so our meetups can go as smoothly and drama free as possible. Thanks!
1) Membership Dues:
Having a meetup group is an annual cost of $144; to maintain this we charge a yearly $2 membership fee. This will also be used to cover costs incurred by the organizer or hosts if members do not show up (see new policy below concerning "no shows") and to assist in funding meetup events.
You can pay this online, by mail, or in person. It is to be paid at your first meetup and again the following year.
2) No Show Policy:
This is intended to encourage accurate RSVPs. After 3 "no shows" (RSVPing "yes" to an event and then not showing up) the member may be removed from group. This is being done for several reasons:
- Often times event reservations are paid in advance, leaving the host to unfairly pay for no shows.
- Frequently, there are large waiting lists of people who would really like to attend the event. By not coming, an individual deprives someone else the chance to partake.
I understand things come up last minute and most of our members tend to be very busy people so it's easy to forget things! Two no shows will be allowed...but the third strike, you're out!
3) Coming Uninvited: **Effective Immediately**
Additionally, if you are not on the "going" list or do not have special permission from the organizer or host to attend a meetup, please do not show up. We have a specific number of people that we plan on for each meetup. It's also not fair to those members that have been patiently waiting on the waiting list if others are able to come to the meetup who weren't even on the list. Members may be removed who show up without permission or without being on the "going" list.
