People are busy, schedules and plans change and it is, of course, perfectly reasonable and acceptable for members to change a 'Yes' RSVP to a 'No'. Unfortunately, however, "No Shows" are not reasonable or acceptable. A "No Show" occurs when a member RSVPs 'Yes' but subsequently fails to show up for the meeting without changing the RSVP to 'No' or without providing any explanation. Additionally, if you are listed as attending a day before the event it is expected that you will attend; a last minute cancel is considered a "No Show." It is expected that if you RSVP 'Yes' and subsequently determine that you cannot attend that you simply change your RSVP to 'No' at least a day before the deadline. It is common courtesy!
Group rules require that if you have RSVPed 'Yes' but will not be able to attend, that you change your RSVP to 'No'. If plans should change suddenly and you do not have an internet connection available, then call 617-964-4800 and leave a message. A "No Show" is considered grounds for removal at the discretion of the organizer. Obviously, there may occasionally be good reasons for a "No Show" and a simple explanation will more than suffice! Please, if you RSVP 'Yes' but decide not to attend, change your RSVP to 'No'. Your cooperation is much appreciated!
