What we're about

Belongers come from all walks of life and have particular personality traits in common;

We practice the importance of diversity, as well as respect each other and their personal time, choices and boundaries.

Many Meetup โ€œorganizersโ€ appear to focus on popularity (โ€œnumbersโ€) rather than function and QUALITY of the group โ€“ NOT SO HERE!

We choose camaraderie over superiority! Progression over seclusion, and personal growth over dormancy. Everyone has struggles, and they are all real. Everyone deserves a voice. And EVERYONEโ€™s opinion matters in this groupโ€ฆ ahhhโ€ฆ but we still need rulesโ€ฆ cuz, thereโ€™s DIVERSITY! Ha ha ha!? ๐Ÿฅด

โ”โ•โ˜… POLICIES โ˜…โ•โ”

โ˜… 1. MEMBERSHIP DUES: $15/year BEFORE 2nd meetup.

This is not my job and expenses run $50-$500/month.

Pay to: imaBelonger@gmail.com with VENMO, CASHAPP or ZELLE.

โ˜… 2. TARDINESS
Repeat (selfish) offenders, are eliminated! Muaahhh uh uh uhhh! LMAO!
Youโ€™ll get kicked you off the island, sucka! ๐Ÿ– ๐Ÿ˜‚

โ˜… 3. TICKETED / PAID EVENTS:
Payment is expected at the time of the RSVP, otherwise your ticket / spot will be given to the next paying member.
Belongers are kind, considerate human beings. Again; NDA: No Drama Allowed! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

โ˜… 4. NO-SHOWS:
If you RSVP "Yes" please be considerate.
Habitual no-shows will lose their Belonger status and membership without refund. As will Belongers who are rude, and/or disrespectful.

โ˜… 5. PHOTOS โ€“ TAKE MANY! ๐Ÿค—

But PLEASE! EMAIL them to me, or nothing at all.

I edit the photos as not all people want their images posted. It happens, OFTEN!

Belongers should all feel safe and trust that I will respect their privacy.

Also, it is too time consuming to download from one source, copy them from another, send them to where I need them, edit themโ€ฆ well, you can see there is a LOT more moving parts to running a meetup than you may have first thought? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Please think about how much time even the simplest task may take me guysss.๐Ÿคช

I do a LOT for this Meetup group. It helped me force myself back into life. I hope it helps you too!

can help you too! Teehee! ;)

Belongers:

For the fun, the unity, and the joy, kindness can bring to othersโ€™ lives.

PEACE & RESPECT DUDES!

โ€ฆ ADDITIONAL POLICIES - just legal stuff because I own business entities (CRAY right?!)

โ˜… 6. AVATAR + DISPLAY NAME
Please display a clear photo of your beautiful face and the name by which you are addressed. A social site is not the place for anonymity. We all have a right to know WHO will be at the meetups we attend! ๐Ÿ˜‚ NDA: No Drama Allowed!

โ˜… 7. NO FREELOADING!
Anyone joining our meetups just for the discounts or to do their own thing, arse-o swiftly recognized and banned permanently. ๐Ÿ˜† Iโ€™m NOT your personal concierge or event calendar. ๐Ÿ˜

And can I just say; does anyone have any respect anymore? I spend 4-20 HOURS of my time and personal cash to arrange events, and people are SO RUDE as to take the โ€œbest seat in the houseโ€ from me? Or, never offer to buy ME a drink? A recent indecent where my shoes almost got washed off the boat as I tried to make sure the boat and all the passengers were okayโ€ฆ NOT ONE person grabbed my shoes, after all that! Youโ€™re welcome. LOL ;) Youโ€™re OFF THE ISLAND! Hahaha! ๐Ÿ˜‚ N D A!

I notice โ€œtakersโ€. So know that!

LETโ€™S JUST HAVE FUN! ๐Ÿ˜˜ ๐Ÿ˜˜
