Portland Social is not specific to any particular age or hobby, its about providing a fun and social atmosphere doing activities people enjoy. This can be a wide range of activities from indoor, outdoor, travel, cooking, exercise, foodie type events and many others. Most of events are free, some may have a cover charge or fee for the event.
There are many other similar meet ups in Portland and surrounding areas. What makes Portland Social different is the organization of events planned, member RSVP's and the interest to bring members together without making a profit.
In order to provide a fun and active group for all, please read the below requirements for joining this group:
Members are welcome to become event planners in the group after attending 3 events. Business marketing events, or events that profit the event planner (such as speed dating events) are not allowed in this group. This keeps the activities friendly without commoditizing the members.
Ever show up to a Meetup, just to find that the organizer is a no-show or the event has much fewer members then advertised on the calendar? This has been the experience for many people, and is one reason why Portland Social was created - to provide a reliable group for people to do fun social activities together.
Many social groups do not organize the attendance of members. As a result, people who make the effort and time to attend events with others are left with a false expectation of the activities they like to enjoy. For this reason, Portland Social has a policy regarding RSVP within the group.
In an effort to keep a consistent experience with activities for people to enjoy, there are no "Maybe" RSVP options with events.
Members who RSVP YES for events and repetitively do not show up will be removed from the group.
Members do have the option to change their RSVP for events from a Yes to No in an effort to keep the attendee list current.
Change to RSVP needs to be done at least 24 hours in advance.
If you have a desire to attend events we encourage you to join our group! Feel free to invite friends or people you know to join! We only ask that you use a real name (no nicknames or false descriptions) and provide a accurate picture of yourself on your profile so we know who you are when attending events.
This Group is free to members, there is a yearly fundraiser event in the summer to help keep the group going and pay for fees associated with the meet up website.
