I wanted to bring this to your attention-the folks at Meetup is doing away with the "Maybe" feature. Most people who RSVP "maybe" generally never attend. As it was explained to us, "Meetup isn't about maybe getting together sometime. It's about actually building local communities that meet face-to-face in the real world. The more we thought about it, the more we realized that 'Maybe' didn't really fit with what Meetup is all about. "
How does this affect you?
Hopefully, this will reduce no-shows and increase attendance for future events... although luckily our group doesn't have nearly the problems with this that other groups apparently have and for that I thank all of you.
This group is for expats and those who speak or are actively learning to speak Swedish, Norwegian or Danish.
Because we speak Swedish, Norwegian and Danish at our gatherings, only members who have a basic or better knowledge of a Scandinavian language will be approved.
Vi är en blandad grupp som jobbar eller bor i stan. Några är svenskar som flyttat till New York, amerikanerna i gruppen har varit utbytesstudenter eller har svenska föräldrar, mor/farföräldrar eller liknande.
Vi er en varierte gruppe av folk som snakker eller lærer Svensk, Norsk, eller Dansk, og som bor her i byen. Vi har nordmenn som flyttet hit, andre som bodde, studerte, eller bare besøkte et skandinavisk land. Noen av oss har skandinaviske forfedrer, og andre kommer bare fordi de er interessert i språkene og kultur. Forhåpenligvis kan dere delta snart!
SSCNY invites members at Club discretion and membership may be revoked or limited at Club discretion. Beyond meeting stated language requirements, members uphold a safe, positive environment of mutual respect at our gatherings and online.
