What we're about
This group is to be a virtual beacon to let Cleveland’s Young Professionals know where their peers are gathering. Here is what Kate, this group’s founder, wrote:
“After graduating college, I moved to Cleveland and found meeting people my age extremely difficult. This is a group for people who are new in town (or just want to meet new people) and want to get together with other young professionals (20’s) to see all that Cleveland has to offer.”
Let's gather often, so that we can get to know each other well, and make networking connections as we ascend our respective industries' career ladder.
What makes Cleveland so great? Cleveland is affordable, and it has a little bit of everything. Cleveland boasts world class museums, interesting one-of-a-kind restaurants, an “Emerald Necklace” of parks, three professional sports teams in three of the four major North American sports leagues, a world famous orchestra, outdoor festivals, and better beaches than those in Columbus, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Indianapolis, Louisville, Nashville, Memphis, Charlotte, and Atlanta combined!
Join this group’s members as we enjoy what Cleveland has to offer year-round. Have an idea for a group event? Contact a member of the group’s Leadership Team.
Important: This is a co-Ed group. This group’s members are between the ages of 21 and 36. Group members must have a clear and recent picture of himself or herself as his/her profile picture.
This is not a dating group. If two group members meet and decide to begin a committed relationship, that is their business.
Harassment policy: This group’s Leadership Team members will ban any members who are proven to be making unwanted, verbal or non-verbal, advances toward any other group member(s). Leadership Team members may even get the police involved.
As a general rule, only private message any other group member if you have met him or her in-person already. The vast majority of this group’s members just moved (back) to Cleveland. Immediately contacting a (new) member to tell him/her how attractive he/she is and you want to go on a date with him/her is usually not a good first impression.
If you receive unwanted advances at a group event, PLEASE NOTIFY YOUR EVENT’S HOST IMMEDIATELY. If you receive unwanted written advances at any time, PLEASE NOTIFY ME (THE ORGANIZER) OR ANY MEMBER OF THE GROUP’S LEADERSHIP TEAM. The Leadership Team can only act upon the concerns, issues, and problems that group members bring to the Leadership Team’s attention.
Facebook: This group also has a private Facebook group. Group members must join the Meetup Group first before joining the Facebook group. The link for the Facebook group is this: https://www.facebook.com/groups/10887151977... (https://www.facebook.com/groups/108871519779444/)
Thank you, again, for joining. The group's members look forward to getting to know you.
