The mission of Atlanta Positive Professional Women’s Network (Atlanta PPWN) is to build an engaged community of purposeful and affirming women so that enriching friendships are formed, memorable experiences are shared, personal growth is encouraged, and communities are empowered.
WHO ARE WE:
We are a group of affirming and purposeful women who enjoy good company, good times, and a good cause. We are women who are comfortable in our own skin, who root for other women, who are low-drama, and who are leaders and influencers in our own right.
Expect a variety of social events from healthy living, spa days, classes, professional sports, personal and community empowerment, adventure, dining out, music & the arts, getaways, and more. Our ideal age-range is 30-60, but we will not turn a positive and purposeful woman away based on age alone.
1. Name: We require your actual name on your Meetup profile. We want to know who you are, and how to find/greet you at events. False or creative names like “Sassy Girl, Wonder Woman, or Jane Doe” make it more challenging to identify and connect with our members.
2. Profile Picture: We require a profile picture to help find you at events, and to ensure the safety of our members. Note - We are a private group which means that usernames, profile information, event locations, and group photo albums are hidden from non-members and search engines.
3. Intake Questions: Our intake questions are the only opportunity we have to: learn about members before we admit them, and to attempt to preserve the safety and mission of the group. We ask for a minimum of 2-3 sentences about yourself, therefore, applicants with vague and incomplete intake questions will not be considered.
Because we only need to know who IS coming, we are only concerned with YES RSVPs. PLEASE DO NOT RSVP NO. The only time to RSVP No is if you RSVP-ed yes, but later had to change plans. It is understood that everyone cannot make every event, so no public explanations are necessary if you cannot make an event.
We fully expect our Members to COMMUNICATE by updating RSVPs at least 24 hours prior to an event. Restaurants and venues allocate space and staff based on our reservation counts, and it is imperative that we maintain our credibility with them. The group also saves space and looks out for members who RSVP-ed "Yes". It is perceived as highly inconsiderate to not change your RSVP timely.
Failure to change your RSVP from Yes to No 24 hours before an event results in a no-show. After three no-shows, a member is removed from the group, and is banned for 6 months, after which a banned member can re-apply.
