Everything Alpharetta was created because there are plenty of local dining, festivals, and activities to do right here! And, I did not want to drive 45 minutes to have a social life as most meetup groups tend to meet somewhere ITP (inside the perimeter).
Though we call ourselves Alpharettaites, anyone can join. And though we say we are Everything Alpharetta, we will do things in neighboring towns. There is no age or gender specifications. The only limitation is our events are OTP (outside the perimeter) - in and around Alpharetta. There will be occasional exceptions when special excursions will start and end in Alpharetta but venture out beyond the normal "EA! radius".
Our smaller size events are ideal for actually meeting and engaging with people. For this reason you will notice I do not do name tags and stuff like that. I try to have a personal approach to organizing events. I treat all of you like I the friends I've always known. For this reason I request that your profile has a face picture because I do look out for you at venues and want to welcome and introduce you to everyone when you arrive.<br>
I voluntarily pay to organize this group to facilitate people sharing fun activities locally. My personal goal is to develop a strong repeat base of members, still engaging new members, while maintaining our intimate size. I am not a professional event planner. <br>
I'm a transplant from NY. I am still learning the area. Majority of the venues will be my first time visiting then. I appreciate your patience, support and respect with regard to all events.
Everything Alpharetta's events, more often than not, have limited number of RSVPs. This creates more social and personal experience in which people can actually talk and get to know each other. For this reason, committing to your RSVPs is essential as it impacts everyone from members who may have wanted to attend an event that was full to the businesses whose space I reserve. Read our NO SHOW POLICY on the discussion board.<br>
I love to hear your ideas. But I have a full time job and a personal budget- I can't do everything I would like to for this group. So, I'm always open to meet members who want to host or organize events that interest them. Hope to meet you soon!<br>
