We are a friendly English-language book club that meets in Abu Dhabi one evening each month to discuss a particular book and other subjects of interest. Occasionally we may meet more often if people are having the time to fit in another book's worth of reading. We try to read an assortment of books (usually recommended by our members) that cover many perspectives, worldviews, religions, and cultures.
CANCELLATION POLICIES of Abu Dhabi Book Club Meetups
All Events with less than 3 confirmed are deemed CANCELLED
*Respect and consideration for others are Top Priority; be considerate by refraining from being a "NO SHOW" (Not showing up and leaving your RSVP a "yes", or changing RSVP to a "no" within 2 hours of an event and not communicating with the organizer) or a "LATE CANCEL" (Cancelling out of an event within 24 hrs of the event).
*Events take work for organizers to coordinate, especially those requiring RSVPs. Make sure you are able to make it to an event to which you RSVP and if you anticipate a conflict or being late, give us a heads up. We understand that things come up and life interferes, but please do your best. ;)
*If you find that you can't make it to something you've signed up for -- CHANGE YOUR RSVP as soon as possible, or call/text/message an organizer/event host if it is within 2 hours of the event. Events take time & energy to plan. If you don't show up AND make no effort to let the Event Planner know what happened --- that's a "NO SHOW".
*No Show/Late Cancel policy: If you have a history of doing this (we keep track of attendance on your profile), we won't be able to count on you to show up when you say you are going to. Out of respect and courtesy to others that DO show up, we may bump you to the waiting list for meetups with limited space in favor of those with a positive attendance history. If you make a habit out of no showing or late canceling, we may remove you from the group.
