This meetup organization generally focuses on educational activities about how to prepare our families for emergencies like what we've experienced here in Richmond over the past several years: hurricanes, power outages, snowstorms, vehicle preparedness (flat tires and such), wilderness skills, and other generalized knowledge.
Group members may or may not currently have knowledge on such subjects, but should have a desire to educate themselves via group participation. There will be at least one scheduled event per month, even if it's meeting for lunch, that is planned by the group and members should attend most activities. Required attendance is one meetup per quarter. Dues are $25 per year, payable after 60 days within the group, which pays for the meetup site as well as additional activities throughout the year.
