Set Your Preferences! If you do not like receiving a lot of e-mails check your preferences. While logged into this group, go to meetup.com. Then check or uncheck the boxes. Decide if you want to receive notices of new events and reminders from Meetup. When I send out announcements of new events and/or notices, I will usually use the list that excludes those who do not want to receive messages. Meetup Announcements and Reminders: each Meetup can have up to 2 automated email reminders. Check or uncheck "I want to receive new Meetup announcements."
