What we're about

Whether you are a South Carolina native or new to the area, we welcome you to join Columbia Generation X meetup group.

Goal of this group is to connect friendly people who are 40+ years old and who want to experience the Columbia area while making new friends.

Some of the main activities of this group are going to diverse festivals and dining out together, but we are always open to new ideas as well.

Group Guidelines:

• This group was set-up for individuals of Generation X, but we don't have a strict age limit. If you are a young baby boomer or an "older" millennial you are just as welcome.

• There is only one requirement for joining this group that will be strictly enforced: You must have a profile picture of yourself. Not your favorite hat, pet, or basket of fruit. It has to be a picture of you! We would like to be able to recognize you when you show up to one of our events. If you are currently a member without a profile picture please upload a picture.

New starting February 2019:

In an attempt to increase the number of members showing up at events for which they signed up for, we are going to introduce a "commitment fee" of $1 per event. We are a very active group with several events each month and would like for members to really get to know each other and enjoy each other's company. However, not knowing how many members will actually show up makes planning events really difficult for me. We hope that by introducing a commitment fee members will only sign up for events that they actually plan on attending.

In accordance with meetup guidelines, your commitment fee will be refunded if the event is canceled or rescheduled. The entire amount will go to meetup as either a payment processing fee or help to cover the annual group fee.
