Hello SWFL Singles Meetuppers!

I wanted to send out a note to all of you to let you know info about our group and how things work. We have a ton of new members who have not been out to an event yet, so I thought this may be helpful for all of you especially.  Also, in case you want to do something and post it on our site here's how it works.

In the upcoming event area we have EVENTS posted.

EVENTS are things to do that we have an Organizer and/or an Event Host for. The details of an EVENT are fully there, such as Where to meet, what time, and Event details. Events are "a go" and will happen if there are "YES" RSVP's.

BECOMING an ASST. ORGANIZER or EVENT HOST and Duties/Responsibilities:

EVENT HOST: All you need to do to become an EVENT HOST is attend an EVENT where there is an Organizer/Asst. Organizer present. Indicate to them (Debbie, Laura, Donna, Nadja, Deb, Cynthia(Cyndie), Frank, The Hump, Darryl) that you are interested in being an EVENT HOST, and what event you would like to host (if you know). Note this is for NEW MEMBERS who have not yet met any of the Organizers/Event Hosts yet. If you already attend events and know us you can be an EVENT HOST right now!!
The duties are simple.
1) Under the group tools tab/dropdown at the top of the Meetup page, click on "Schedule a Meetup". Watch the EVENT you posted online each day(if possible) to see if any questions/comments have been posted and post replies as needed.
2) Pick a place for people to meet you that's easy to spot and where attendees can find you.
3) Be there at the designated time and look for the "YES" RSVP's. (You can print a sheet with the "Yes" RSVP people's pictures off the event)
4) GREET ALL MEMBERS!! This is very important, especially for NEW MEMBERS. Of course if you already know the people coming the greeting is less formal, but with New Members please introduce them to the people around you.

To be an ASST ORGANIZER you need a little more experience with MEETUP. We all have a common goal of making friends, and doing this though the simple process of posting FUN/Interesting things to do, and then GREETING and meeting people when they come out. All of the DUTIES I posted above for EVENT HOST apply to ASST ORGANIZERS (A/O's) as well. You need to come out to a few Events so you understand how things work prior to becoming an A/O.
A/O's have a few additional DUTIES above and beyond an Event Host:

1) Coordinate new MEETUP Group Idea's with the ORGANIZER (Debbie) or CO-ORGANIZER (Laura), we are the Founding Organizers of the SWFL Singles Meetup group and are responsible for "Steering the Ship".
4) You will have access to additional info/statistics/abilities on the GROUP WEBSITE and need to only use these new abilities as coordinated with Debbie or Laura ahead of time. Note that this is only for a NEW ASST, anyone that has done this awhile just posts events and makes updates etc.. without having to coordinate.
5) You DON"T have to post any "quota" of EVENTS or anything, just when it's convienient for you and something you WANT to do. Some ASST ORGANIZERS specialize in Happy Hour/Club activities and some prefer Daytime ACTIVE/Sports kind of activities. It's all good, we want a VARIETY of EVENTS posted because we are all different!

One other comment I'd like to make that although this is a "Singles" Meetup, once you have come out to a bunch of EVENTS and have made MEETUP your social life, if you meet a significant other you are NOT BANNED from the group just because you are not "Single" anymore. These people attend as a COUPLE or alone and many have met through MEETUP. These couples are VALUED members of the group and are welcome to attend events with the great group or friends they have met through Meetup/SWFL Singles. If you are a NEW MEMBER or haven't yet met alot of the attendees of an EVENT don't just ASSUME members are currently LOOKING for a Boyfriend/Girlfriend. Some people are exclusively dating, or have just been through a divorce etc.. In otherwords, just be polite and get to know people, don't approach SWFL Singles Meetup members with Pick-Up lines, innuendos etc... That being said, there are alot of people that are looking for that special someone, many of them have noted this fact on their Meetup Profile.

I hope this explains things a bit to the Membership. Please e-mail Co-Organizer LAURA (just click on my name in the "Organized by" area) if you have any questions or want to become an EVENT HOST or Asst Organizer (A/O).

I look forward to meeing you all at an Event soon!!
