What is a Sistahgirl?
A Sistahgirl is a female that enjoys having fun with other Sistahs of like mindset. She enjoys meeting new people, having fun and enjoying life. She is not afraid to be herself. She does what she says she is going to do because she has high integrity. She is open to making others feel welcome when new people become Sistahgirlz. She supports the group by attending events and outings. Above all things she KEEPS IT REAL!
What is the purpose of the group?
The group was formed to allow women to socialize and connect with other women who aren't afraid to have fun and live life. A Sistahgirl could have a family or job that keeps her busy, she could be new to the area and doesn't know where to start to meet new people, maybe they need a new set of friends or she doesn't have any real female friends at all. Whatever the case may be this group could be the answer and if not she can leave at anytime, no questions asked. This group is also a major hub for socializing. If main events are not scheduled it does not mean you can't suggest events and have people come that you may have met before or you are meeting for the first time. So, feel free to exchange contact information because that is what socializing and connecting is all about!
Is it okay to network my business
This is a social site and for social purposes only. However, we are aware that many Sistahz own businesses but we do not want anyone to EVER feel pressured to purchase your products or utilized your service because that is not what this site is about. So, please refrain from advertising your business or we will remove you immediately. There will be times throughout the year that we have events just for promoting your business but only during those times. This event is called Sistahgirlz Link and it will be for the purpose of networking your business. We do have vendors at certain events but it must be a non-pressured environment and you must offer free services, donate products or give discounted rates.
What type of events are planned?
A variety of events are planned both traditional and unique. These events could range from monthly dinners, movies, game nights, cocktail parties to slumber parties, weekend getaways and cruise vacations. The sky is the limit and all ideas are welcomed.
Where do we host events?
We host event anywhere we can. If you have a venue that you would be willing to donate space for our event please let us know so that we can host something at your place.
What if I have an idea for an event?
You don't have to be an organizer to suggest and idea. Post your idea on the idea page and it will go out to all the members. Members who want to attend will "like" or respond to you suggestion. Sistahz can attend your event without there being a main event posted on the site. Although some ideas will become main events. If you post an idea, please also be willing to host or organize the idea if needed. The organizers cannot attend every event posted so whomever suggested the event can represent the group well.
What if I can't attend every event?
It is not a requirement that you attend every event. Attend the the events that you have interest in being a part of. It is required that you attend at least one function within 3 months are you will be removed from the group for inactivity.
Can I bring my children?
Sorry this is an adult group. There may be times where we have children friendly events such as our annual cookout or theme park days but most events are adult only. In the event details it will denote if the event is kid friendly.
Can I bring my husband or boyfriend?
There may be opportunities to bring your mate and it will state so in the event details.
Is the group open to invite people I know?
Feel free to invite other Sistahz that you feel would enjoy the group. Please express what a Sistahgirl is and the purpose of the group.
Are there any membership dues?
There are no membership dues. The site is paid for on a quarterly basis at $45/3mths through a Sistahgirlz Paypal account. The money is deposited in that account from donations from past events. If there is no money in the account then the organizer will cover the charge for the membership dues.
Is this group affiliated with any other groups or organizations?
This group is for fun only. We are not affiliated with any business, churches, religious organizations, sororities, political organizations or community organization.
