POLICIES FOR LAPUG EVENTS' RSVPs for PDALA MEMBERS*

1. PHOTO POLICY: You MUST have a CLEAR, RECENT, ID-STYLE or HEADSHOT-STYLE, FULL-FACE photo of you (alone!) - and without sunglasses or dark glasses - POSTED on your PDALA profile in order to attend "any" LAPUG (ie LA Photoshop User Group) meetings. There are NO exceptions to this. If you RSVP Yes and don't have such a photo posted, your RSVP will be removed and you will not be admitted to the event. This is a "Meetup" event and other members, and we the organizers, would like to recognize YOU when you attend, just like you can recognize US and the other members (ie simple RESPECT and COURTESY all around). Thank you for your understanding but if you're unable to comply, no problem but kindly do not RSVP.

2. NO-SHOW POLICY: If you have previously RSVPd Yes to LAPUG events in the past - and did not attend, without canceling your RSVP in time, more than once, your RSVP to this event WILL be removed/canceled. If you would like to attend and have been a No-Show at past LAPUG events twice or more, please contact Christian or Ron with an explanation. Our space is limited and we PAY for our chairs so we ask you to kindly cancel your RSVP in time (or contact Christian or Ron) if you find yourselves unable to attend.

*NOTE These two policies are the very same which have applied to all 700+ members of the LA Photoshop User Group since our founding in 2008. Thank you for understanding and for respecting our policies by not RSVPing Yes if you're unable to comply with them.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
