THIS GROUP IS CLOSED TO NEW MEMBERS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
Please read this first. Because of the Organizer fees charged by Meetup we are restricting group numbers to 50. In order to do this I have decided to delete any members from this meetup group who have not attended an event in any period of 5 months. If you would like to have regular outings with a lovely bunch of ladies then we will welcome you warmly. If you are undecided about why you are joining the group or only intend using our events as a stop gap in case nothing better comes along, then we are not the group for you. If you fall into the first group please read on.
History of the group.
Our group was founded in 2011 by Linda, in response to what was seen as a lack of meetup groups for older women that meet in the North Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne.
NEMWCC was the first and the original, not for profit meetup group in this area for women aged 40+.
Linda stepped down as organizer in December 2013 after establishing and running a very successful and enjoyable group. I have taken over and hope to continue to fill her very large shoes in keeping the group running.
What we are about.
This is a group for women to make new friendships over a friendly coffee, wine and something to eat . We are mostly older women 40 plus in age.
We meet approximately once a month usually on a weekend during the day. We generally visit venues in the north to eastern suburbs and around the city. Past events have included lunches, movies, afternoon teas and visits to galleries and craft workshops.
We welcome any suggestions for places that would be suitable for the group and if there is enough interest we can extend our activities to the evenings, particularly during daylight savings.
The current members are a friendly group of ladies and we
welcome new members from all walks of life regardless of your circumstances or interests.
So if you would like to widen your social circle and engage in lively, interesting chats and share a coffee, wine or meal, join us as we explore this wonderful city that we live in.
Currently there are no fees.
There is only one expectation of members. As our meetups involve booking a table at a venue, it is imperative that if you have RSVP'D YES and you are unable to attend, that you let me know. My mobile number is posted on the members board for each meetup. Please text me. You can also change your RSVP attendance on the board by clicking NO. I am notified of all RSVP changes as soon as they are made on the group's board. This allows me to notify venues of changes to booking numbers.
We look forward to meeting you,
New members must be approved by the Organizer

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
