This wonderful group is dedicated to women who want to expand their social circle and meet new, interesting people. Let's be honest, it can be very difficult to meet new people! Maybe you have just outgrown your friends due to them having babies, moving away, getting married, or vice versa. Either way, we are here to help!
How ELMG came together:
ELMG was founded by an energetic and welcoming person named Shauna, who saw a gap in social opportunites for ladies in the Edmonton area and decided to do something about it! Shauna has since chosen to leave the group but her contribution to lives changed by new friendships will not be forgotten. I am very proud of this group and what it provides to ladies in the Edmonton area.
Nervous about attending your first meetup? That's okay, its totally normal to feel that way. It is scary to go to a venue alone and sit with a bunch of people you don't know. Don't worry - we are all friendly. Remember that we are all here for the same reasons - to make new, lasting friendships. You may find that you connect a little more easily with some people and maybe not as much with others, but that's all part of the fun! Everyone has something special and positive to offer. Please remember that disrespectful or judgmental comments or behaviour are not permitted at our meetups, and may lead to a member being removed or permanently banned from the group. The premise of this group is to welcome new friends.
That being said, as a member of our fantastic group we expect you to be active. That means, RSVPing to events, attending events (at least one a month). If you NO SHOW without any explanation, you will be removed from the group. We want to keep this group upbeat, fun and active - just like our members.
If you have any questions or concerns, please never hesitate to send a message to any of the organizers. We are always willing to help you out!
