This group is for Lesbians living in the Inland Empire who want to get together, make new friends, and have a few fun times. Norine and Vanessa started this group so we could connect with each other and try new things in the IE. And nothing would be more rewarding for me than to see a wedding between members who met in this group.
A few things to know about Meetup:
It ain't free. Each Meetup group has one Organizer. The organizer is responsible for making sure the group is active, approves new members and makes sure the required dues are paid to Meetup (BTW it's $89.99 for 6 months but I do not ask members for dues).
The Co-organizer does the same thing. There can be as many Co-Organizers as the Organizer approves.
Hosts are members that agree to run an event. Hosts should be the first to arrive at an event, that the group can be identified and located by new members. This can be just about anything, a sign, name tags, a loud speaker (me), a rainbow flag, etc. "Hosts" host events, they are not required to host events at their home. If an event is announced and no one volunteers to host it, I must cancel the event.
Suggestions are for you to put feelers out there. From the homepage, select the "Suggestions" tab. Suggest an event for IELM members to consider. You will not be committing yourself to be a host. When 3 members agree to participate, the event is automatically "announced". Please use this feature. I'm good, but not that good. I need your help to keep you all busy and I can't host everything.
Oh, and ignore that "Chip In" button in the left margin. When I figure out how to get rid of it, I will.
With that said....welcome to Inland Empire Lesbian Meetup!
