So so funny you hate all the emails and you send the exact same email twice - like I said in previous one chill out there are far more important things to stress about than these emails.

I belong to several meetup groups and I do not get this many unnecessary emails except from this one.
If you need to have a discussion  use the Discussion link which is what other meetup groups do.  I open my computer this morning and I have 25 emails from  in addition to hundreds I already have.  If you don't know how to use it, call Meetup's office in New York and ask for the directions. 
Basicially someone starts the Discussion and if another responds, they do it through that link so everybody doesn't have to receive an email.  My profile is set to receive emails from my other meetup groups in which case I only receive one or two.  If there is a discussion it is started by one person and if I want to respond I go to the Discussion link.  Some groups have over 3,000 members -- if they didn't you that link imagine the amount of emails you would receive.l
 
Wendy,  just as you said about people taking responsibility before they post, the group can also take responsibility to learn how to use the Discussion link.

Sorry but I write way better in English. First I am grateful for this Meetup group & for all the work Kirsten has done.
Second people need to take some responsibility on themselves as to getting information before they post. Such as if you go to Meetup you can see who is the leader/host of the group, nothing in life is free except death and Meetup does charge a group an annual fee and you can stop the emails if you don't want them - change your profile or you can ignore them or quit. Third It is hard for me to understand why people are getting so upset over what is practically insignificant. No one can possibly believe Kirsten trying to rip us off. She has a legitimate request. The paying at each meeting is NOT right - Kirsten has to pay NOW. She needs the money soon. Frankly I don't care to freeload and want to pay my own way. If you can afford to drive to the meeting you can cough up a $1.00. Some are up in arms as if she asked you to pay the entire $75, lighten up.
Let us just discuss how we can help pay the dues and keep the meetings going. And yes I know some people are going to freeload but that’s life.
Wendy

I am on the Meet Up home page as the organizer and it is very easy to find out what the fees are for Meet Up.
 
There is also a note at the bottom of my email FROM Meet Up:

I am new to meet-up groups, so I don't actually know how they work.  But in general, when I receive requests for money via email for someone I've never heard of I delete them.  I don't know who you are Kirsten.  I don't know what the $75 "renewal fee" is for.  Perhaps you would get a better response if you introduced yourself and gave a clear explanation of how the money is used.

Hello with all this technology around we gotta make it easy for some that technology has made us a bit lazy open a Paypal account and we can stream donations to your bank account by a few clicks to your email address PayPal is very secure  
It's very tedious to make a check or money order for 1 2 or 3 dollars
Just a suggestion lets make technology work for us

Last year many members came through and made donations to the group to pay for the site.  I can only assume that the contributions were enough to keep the site alive for several years.
 
Can you let me know if I am mistaken by this? Thank you...

Hi everyone,
The renewal fee is due again ($75 every 6 months) so I need for our members to send me a donation because I can't pay for this by myself. We have more than 900 members so I am not asking for a lot of money. When the last organizer asked for money, she did not get much of a response. If I don't collect enough to cover the fee, then there will be no more group and I know you guys don't want that. If I collect more than $75, I will be that towards the following fee. If everyone sent me $1, this group could run for SIX YEARS. Now, I know everyone won't send, so please send $3, $4, $5 or more if you can.
My address is:
Kirsten Cuillard
4389 Foxfield Court
Harrisburg, NC 28075

THANKS!!!!!
