Welcome to the Cleveland New-In-Town or Not group.
We are a group of fun and friendly people looking to meet new friends and create great friendships. Our mission is to introduce residents of  The  Greater Cleveland/Akron area to unique events and places in the area. We want to make this group a member driven group and we will provide events for people to explore and we need your input and help keeping this awesome group successful!!


We require all of our members to post a recognizable picture of themselves alone and an accurate first name on your Meetup profile. It helps with us as Organizers to know who are and to who to look for at events.

You are required to be accurate with your RSVP's. If you say you are coming, you are expected to show up. ( We understand that emergencies and life  happens ) This is in consideration of your Organizers who work hard at planning quality events and especially when we are dealing with venues, we need accurate counts.
If you are unable to attend, please update/change your RSVP as soon as possible. Please do not continually RSVP yes for an event and then not show up.  It is unfair to members who would like to attend an event that has a few openings but cannot due to tickets being sold out.

We look forward to meeting you soon at one of our events!!! Thanks and Welcome!!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
