Exercising awareness and caution
I highly recommend that members of Italian -Australia Social
Meetup 30's group exercise awareness & caution about who they provide their personal contact details to. I also discourage members to ask other members to lifts etc... Offering another group member a lift is is fine only when until you have gotten to know someone well and only when you feel comfortable them, then that is fine. Please understand that everyone is responsible for getting to and from a meetup though their own means or use public transport.
This is NOT an on-line dating site. Please DON'T email members you have never met and request a date. You will be removed if you do that.
I encourage people to get to know each other through group events so please be cautious at all times for your own safety. It takes time to get to know people. Please DO NOT bring any new people home that you don't know whom you just met. If you decide to meet up with members outside official meetup events, always meet up with new people in a public place where other people can see you. This is important for both men and women.

Meetup group & purpose
The aim of this meetup is for group members mingle socially with other singles, to provide a meeting place where friendships and possibly relationships can be formed.
The group promotes the immersion of all things Italian things (Italian Language & Culture).
The purpose of this meetup social group is to get off the computer and to establish real-life friendship in "real, in person" social events. Even though good friendships & relationships will come out of this group only after the normal and natural means of socialising and get to know other group members other through regularly participating in social events.
Group attendance and participation:
If you have no intention to attend or participate in any of the meetup events, (and just come to check people out and not come again) you should not join this group.
Members who are not active for three months or so will be reviewed , maybe contacted and or removed.
Regular attendance to meetup events is required as attendances will be reviewed on a quarterly basis. No shows to any meetups is just rude and bad manners, this will result in having your membership to this meetup group removed/cancelled.
If you have RSVP "YES" to a meet up event and then for what ever reason you cannot make it please be kind and courteous enough and change your RSVP to "NO". Not showing up at a meetup and not changing your RSVP status will not be tolerated.
Minimum quota for meetup event
Each meet up event will need to have a minimum quota of 7 people including myself to go ahead with. In instances where this is not achieved all members will be advised by email notification, and the event will be cancelled and rescheduled for another time.
