New in town or been living here for a while? Are you interested in get-together events such as apéro, happy hour, party, day trips/weekend travels, and clubbing?
Want to make new friends and develop your social & business network?
Whether you are new to America, Atlanta, or just new to getting out, we welcome you to our group.
We are are group of globally-minded young (or at least, young-at-heart) individuals with open mind and heart who enjoy activities like going to bars, clubs, comedy shows, live music, outdoor activities, and traveling.
Our group is very welcoming to newcomers but also is a great place to make amazing new friends. Our members are what make this one of Atlanta's best meetup groups! ;)
Feel free to contribute ideas for get-togethers: Your input is welcomed and encouraged!!
Important note about No-Shows
- All members and guests attending our events must keep up with their RSVP.
- If you're not going to an event that you have RSVP'd for, then we ask that you please change your RSVP to "no" as soon as possible. This will ensure the organizer is not standing alone at a place waiting for someone who said they would show up but then couldn't. Also, it assists with our being seated for dinner when we know exactly who we are still waiting on.
Late Shows at Events
- It's okay to come late to the events, as delays happen to everyone... but please post a comment so we know to keep a lookout for you!
DID YOU KNOW that Meetup costs something? Yes, it's not free to own a group. Even with only 50 members, it costs the group owner $10/month just to have the group on Meetup.
With a larger group, it costs $15/month.
To offset this cost, we recently initiated yearly dues. This is currently set to $5, of which the organizer receives $4 and some change. It's easy to pay and actually keeps the group in existence. Many people have met so many friends through this group, so it's really easy to say that it's quite worth it.
The group organizers believe in quality over quantity, and we would prefer to have a group that has a comfortable feel and that people look forward to going and meeting new people.
So, on that note, we have also initiated "EVENT FEES"- a refundable deposit which is refunded when you attend the event you signed up for. This is to encourage as close to 100% attendance as possible. With just a click of the button, you may either change your RSVP from a Yes to a No, or the organizer can refund your money when you attend!
Thank you for visiting our group page, and please feel free to check us out. When you join the group, you have 14 days to change your mind and leave the group or else pay the yearly dues of $5 and get to a know a great group of people!
