Introduction to Single Seniors Socializing
Our intent is to create a Meetup Group, which supports the desires of our members and our mission statement:
“Single Seniors Socializing is composed of men and women who are young in spirit and have enthusiasm for life. The purpose of this group is to build lasting friendships, share ideas, encourage participation, have fun, and enjoy events and activities with like-minded people. We are creating an atmosphere of friendship through activities such as dining out, theater, walks, dancing, game nights, touring places of interest, volunteer activities to name just a few.”
To support this we have established a number of guidelines for this group. These guidelines are designed to keep the group vibrant, show respect for all members, and promote the success of the group.
Rules of Conduct: We strongly encourage you to
• Be active and participate. The more you invest of your time and yourself in the group, the more you will get in return.
• Share your ideas to improve events and activities with your Leadership Team at Planning Meetings or via emails.
• Conduct yourself appropriately. Inappropriate behavior will not be accepted and could jeopardize your membership.
We strongly request that you do NOT
• Sell your business or your products
• Proselytize your religious beliefs/opinions
• Promote your political views
Membership dues-Yearly donation: We are a volunteer organization that has expenses which include Meetup yearly website fees, office supplies, event expenses, processing fees, and other misc items.
Dues are mandatory starting in January 2016.. Voluntary dues have been suspended for the remainder of 2015.
An RSVP is a commitment you have made to the host and the group to be at an event and participate. Please only RSVP for events that you are certain you will attend. If you do RSVP and for any reason, need to change your status, please CHANGE YOUR RSVP to "No" immediately. Please DO NOT show up to events without an RSVP. This is a disruption to the event. Two (2) arrivals without an RSVP within a 12 month period will be grounds for removal from the SSS Membership.
THE NO SHOW POLICY: If you RSVP and do not attend the event, it will be counted as a “NO SHOW”. Three (3) “NO SHOWS” within a 12 month period will be grounds for removal from the SSS Membership.
GUESTS: Each guest may attend up to three (3) events within 60 days before becoming a member. Once the limit has been reached, the guest must submit a request to join SSS, wait for approval, and then pay the annual membership fee to continue attending events.
Your Organizers and Hosts work diligently to provide interesting and fun events. Some of those events have limited space and may have waiting lists. It is not fair or courteous to the Organizer/Host and to the people who could have attended if you simply do not attend.
Hosting and Participation
What makes Single Seniors vibrant, interesting, friendly, and fun is the participation and volunteer efforts of our members.
We strongly encourage and recommend that you share your ideas, interests, skills, and creativity with us by volunteering to host events, helping others to host their events, attending Planning Meetings, and participating in all our activities.
Feel free to contact our Leadership Team to share your thoughts and comments. We look forward to working with you to fill our calendar with great and timely events.
EVENT HOSTS: To become an Event Host, the member must have already attended three (3) SSS events as a member, not as a guest. Each Event Host must plan and host two (2) events or one (1) recurring event within a 12 month period to remain an Event Host within SSS.
EVENT SUPPLIES: SSS will reimburse Event Hosts for supplies needed to run ongoing events. The supplies must be approved by the Leadership Team before the supplies are purchased for reimbursement. Sometimes Event Hosts can share supplies for similar events, such as card and domino games.
