Are you looking to get out the house to meet other black ladies in your area to have dinner with;or just hang out? Well this group is for you.
We offer a friendly place to come out and make new friends. Don't be shy, we all have had to be the new person in the group.
WELCOME to Women In Black-Austin.
I will try to schedule 2/3 different activities, meetings or social gatherings every month. The goal is to form friendships and just have a great time. I will also set aside a few events for family, husbands/boyfriends or that special someone. I believe in maintaining balance and harmony with those who are so important in our lives.
Although I have made the initial effort to start this group, your input, thoughts and ideas would be great. Remember this is YOUR group and everyone has a say, so feel free to come up with suggestions for events.
MESSAGE BOARD Feel free to use the message board to let the group know about something you think we would be interested in or if you are just looking for someone to hang out with, who knows maybe one of the members will be willing to join you for a last minute outing. You can also use the message board to post your business, if you are looking for a job, a place to rent, a new salon, a business or products that you sell that the group may be interested in etc.
GROUP EMAILS No One is allowed to send out any emails to the group as a whole unless it is first approved by the organizer. There will be no exceptions to this rule!!! Please try to use the message board for any and all communication.
PICTURES A profile picture is very important because it allows the group to recognize each other when we meet at different locations. I do ask that you post a photo of yourself.
THE IMPORTANT RSVP I use this information to prepare the event and to gage interest. If you RSVP YES, PLEASE Try To Show Up To The Event!!!
Sometimes last minute emergencies happen and I fully understand, but please call me on my cell so that we know not to be looking for you to attend. I would rather you call, than for you to not just show up.
NO SHOW PENALTY: Effective 1 January 2013 you will be removed from the group for a "NO SHOW". A "NO SHOW" is defined as not updating your RSVP or notifying the organizer, assistant organizer(s) via email or telephone, less than four 4-hours prior to the start of an event.
Grounds for Removal:
Non payment of membership fees: Every quarter, I will review membership status. If you haven't paid the annual membership fee, you will be removed from the group.
Inactivity: Meetup will automatically remove members if you've been inactive for a period of 1 year or more.
NO SHOWS: See NO SHOW item above.
SHOUT OUTS Please welcome our new members by sending them a shout out when they join the group!!!
FRIENDS If you find someone in the group that you seem to click with, why not add them to your friends list.
SUGGESTIONS If you suggest an outing, Please ladies show up to your own event.
RATING EVENTS Please take the time to rate the events, this lets me know what type of events you ladies are enjoying. If possible add a comment they are always welcome.
NETWORKING LADIES THIS ISN'T A NETWORKING MEET UP GROUP. I TOO BELIEVE IN SUPPORTING BUSINESSES OWNED BY US BUT PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS GROUP AS A SOURCE TO PROMOTE YOUR BUSINESS. IF YOU OWN YOUR OWN BUSINESS FEEL FREE TO COME OUT WITH US AND HAVE A GREAT TIME AND BRING YOUR BUSINESS CARDS FOR ANYONE YOU MIGHT BE INTERESTED IN YOUR SERVICE. IF YOU ARE AN ACTIVE MEMBER AND YOU SEND OUT RESPONSES TO EMAILS AND YOU HAVE YOUR BUSINESS INFORMATION AT THE BOTTOM. THATS OK. BUT NO EMAILS SHOULD BE SENT OUT PROMOTING YOUR BUSINESS JUST FOR BUSINESS PURPOSES. ANYONE WHO BREAKS THIS RULE WILL BE WARNED ONCE. YOU WILL BE DELETED FROM THE GROUP FOR ANY ADDITIONAL INFRACTIONS. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT IS OK AND WHAT IS NOT FEEL FREE TO ASK. NOW IF YOU OWN YOUR OWN SPA, COFFEE SHOP, HAVE ONE OF THE MANY PARTY THINGS AND YOU WOULD LIKE TO PUT SOMETHING ON THE CALENDAR FOR THE GROUP, THAT IS ALSO FINE. JUST CHECK WITH ONE OF THE ORGANIZERS TO SEE IF THAT IS SOMETHING THAT WE CAN DO.
Now that the rules are out; Ladies, LET'S GET THIS PARTY STARTED
