I tried charging at meetings for a year. Nobody paid. Few even showed up.

I have gone to meetups where $5 is charged… I think that this amount is
doable.

Organizers can have three groups for $144 per year so one group is less than
$50 a year. But some are looking to make money from the group itself and I
hate to see that start. . Maybe charge for an occational meeting if an
organizer needs to make back the money paid to meetup but don't charge to join
the group. Also, would it be a collection nightmare? If it was turned over to
paypal or the like, I would not want $1 coming out of my account and I wonder
how many people would even join under those circumstances. Again,. I had
rather pay for the occational meeting that I think is worthwhile paying for
(and that is really not too many). Interesting poll, Jul;ia. Thanks for
setting it up  Terry.
