The MeetUp group, Young Professional Women and Wine, is for women in their 20's and 30's in the Bay Area who are interested in connecting with like minded individuals and engaging in stimulating conversation with a glass of wine. This group is for you to make friends and to network. Both aspects should not be forced but come naturally. Members are encouraged to help each other in building a secure and trusting community within the group.
Professional in the sense that you would consider yourself in a particular social stratum of the well educated, who enjoys considerable work autonomy, and are commonly engaged in creative and intellectually challenging work. Being friendly, kind and having style & etiquette also help.
Meetups will be held multiple times a month in various areas of the Bay Area in various sizes.
As of August 1st, 2013 I began charging membership dues. Running a meetup is not free. By charging I hope to provide better meetups as well as demonstrate member commitment and interest. If after 30 days you don't pay your due, you will be warned. After 60 days you will be removed from the group. Consistent now shows will also be removed, but not banned, after three offenses. Removed members are welcome to rejoin as long as you plan to attend. I work hard to schedule and execute these meetups in an effort for you to get out and meet new people in a lovely and relaxed atmosphere. I am considerate of your interest and time therefore I expect the same. Suggestions always welcome.
