Since our book group was formed in 2010, our organizer Katy Chafin has assumed the cost of the monthly fee charged by Meet-Up ($15 per month).
At our last meeting, we discussed how to find a more equitable way to share the expenses. We arrived at 2 solutions:
1) Going forward, attendees will be asked to contribute $2 at each gathering to cover the cost of maintaining the website.
2) To cover the expense Katy already has incurred ($180 total), members agreed to share the cost. We agreed to split the costs based on frequency of past attendance. It is a
bit of a back of the envelope approach, but seemed equitable. We (Katy, Marcie, Candace, Anna, Dana, Josh, and I) assigned the cost-sharing as noted below. If you didn't attend last month's gathering, please bring your share to tonight's event.
This approach reimburses Katy for the bulk of her
expenditures, and is a one-time expense. Going forward, we'll each contribute $2 per gathering as a I noted above.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me or Katy.
Thanks! Looking forward to seeing you tonight.
