MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS:
Each Applicant must create a profile to be considered for acceptance. Couples must apply INDIVIDUALLY, and create INDIVIDUAL profiles. Only ONE 14-Day Free Trial is offered per Applicant. Profiles applications are brief and easy! Upload a recent photo and compketely answer the (5) provided simple questions about yourself and your interests.
The Profile application is used for Group Organizers and Members to identify and recognize Trial Members at RSVPed events. (Member photos uploaded for their Profile, should not be photos of the Applicant wearing sunglasses. Thus will cause the application to be denied for Group acceptance). Applicants must respond to all of the profile application questions completely. Applicant's responses provide general informative about themselves and their interests. Members who join our Group will have the ability to view all Applicant's profiles. Profiles also assist Organizers and Members who view planned events on our web-page, to see who has RSVPed, and who to expect to share the planned event with.
14-DAY FREE TRIAL AND MEMBERSHIP DETAILS:
The 14-Day Trial allows Applicant Members to sample events and determine if they desire to pay and join our Group as a official Group Member. The required annual Membership fee is required to be paid prior to the end of the Trial period to join as a official Group Member. Memberships consist of one full year from the date the Annual Membership fee is paid. Paid Members are able to attend as many posted events as they wish to RSVP and attend all year long! Only ONE Free 14-Day Trial is offered per INDIVIDUAL Applicant. The 14-Day Free Trial is offers the opportunity for Applicants to select and RSVP to posted events within the 14-Day Trial period. Applicants will have the opportunity to meet any attending Members at each event they RSVP to attend.
The Membership fee covers web-page costs, and a small portion is paid to the Group's Lead Organizer for her personal time used for Membership monitoring, event research, preparation, and personal time used for creating, posting and the hosting of most Group events.
The annual $20 Membership fee is truly inexpensive When you consider how many events are planned weekly all year long! The annual $20 fee averages to $1.67 per month, or .14 cents per week! What a bargain to have the opportunity to select from and experience 165-275 or more fun pre-planned events, while meeting and getting to know fun and interesting people in our Group! The fee is well worth the benefits of fun and friendships for a year-long membership, which is optionally renewable each year!
Reminders for renewals will automatically be sent to all Members prior to the final due date. If renewal is not chosen by the renewal deadline date provided by MeetUp's collection Center, We-Pay, the Membership will cease, and the Member's profile will be removed until they decide to reapply and pay to rejoin.
STEPS TO FOLLOW TO JOIN AS A OFFICIAL MEMBER:
One Applicants apply as a Trial Member and choose to officially join as a Official Member, they should click the word-link in the left-side Desktop view of our Group web-page, which says, "20/year". Clicking on this word-link will automatically redirect Applicants to our Groups secure online payment processing service, offered by Meetup.com Headquarters, called WePay. The WePay service accepts AMX. M/C, and VISA payments in a process similar to PayPal. Payors can print or save a copy of their processed payments for their personal records. Official Membership will occur once the Membership fee is paid.The Group Organizer will be notified by WePay once the payments is processed. Our Group Organizer will then email the paid Member with a welcome message.
FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITIES AT RSVPED EVENTS
All financial responsibilities for each planned event attended are the individual responsibility of each attending Member. Separate checks are expected of each attendee, except when couples attending opt to share their own joint expenses. This method allows Members to personally select their own individually personalized experience at each event they choose to attend.
RSVPS and "NO SHOW" POLICY
Member's RSVPs are required to attend posted events they plan to attend. Once Trial Members RSVP, they'll simply arrive at the event they RSVPed to attend, and introductions will begin as soon as they introduce themself to the event participants, who are typically grouped together as "The Spring Social Club", as a venue reservation name. Most often it is wisest to seek the attending Members, based on their photos provided with their event RSVP. This is why a current profile photo upload is recommended for Member identification purposes for posted events. Once introduced, the fun begins!
RSVPs should be used by Members to display their committed intent to attend Posted events. RSVPS are a serious sign of Member's intent to participate. RSVPs are NOT REQUIRED for events Members are unable to attend. Members should ignore invitations and reminders for events they are not interested or unable to attend, and delete them. Comments are welcomed if a Member cannot attend a specific event, but would like the Host to consider posting the event to be repeated on a proposed specified date and time in the future.
Please remember, (3) "NO SHOWS" by any RSVPed Member for a posted event will result in immediate removal and banning from re-joining our Group. Exceptions are made only if the Group Organizer is notified prior to the missed event, or when the Member's absence to a RSVPed event is caused by a legitimate emergency.
