Hello WAM Members,
I would like to address the e-mails that have been sent to the group and also to me over the past few days.
Although it is not by any means my intention to cancel our meetups on short notice, there will no doubt be times when a meetup will need to be canceled due to weather, illness, or other unexpected events. Due to the fact that I cannot access the meetup site at work, if a meetup does need to be canceled on short notice, you would be notified by 5:45pm on that day.
You may also want to check your e-mail prior to leaving in order to verify that there have been no changes to the meetup. If you do not have access to e-mail and you think that details of the meetup may have changed, you may contact me at [masked]. I will be happy to answer any questions you have.
After our Nov. 5th meeting, subsequent meetings will be held from 7:30-9:30pm in order to help ensure that people receive any cancellation notification, should there be a reason to cancel on short notice.
There have been several inquiries regarding the $1 fee for our meetup group. It is important that all members realize that this is not a fee I am charging rather a fee required by meetup.com
. What many meetup participants don't realize is that the meetup group organizer pays (at a minimum) $12/month to meetup.com
. I feel the concept of a $1 fee is a fair one - many meetup organizers charge $2 or more per meeting. I want all costs to be kept to a minimum - this is a group activity and I feel that it is important that costs be shared by the group.
In addition to the cost of the group, there is a significant amount of time and energy devoted to making a meetup group work. This is a subject that I am keenly interested in and passionate about - I like to share this passion with like minded people. I do this for the art, not the organization and I certainly hope that members of the group are aware of that.
I have only been organizing this group for a short time, but it is my hope that this group will move forward in a productive direction with a positive attitude. In that light I would like to say that respect for all members of the group is a key ingredient in making this happen - we all bring something to the group whatever role we play.
