Cost of a Meetup Broup

From: Kathleen

Hello Everyone, we are looking forward to the meetup this Sunday at Tynehead Regional Park in Surrey. This is actually our 3rd meetup as we had one at Ambleside in March which was organized by Frances one of our members. At that meetup, there was discussion of how it would be nice to have a website. So Barbara started the Corgis of BC site with her as Organizer and Kathleen as Assistant Organizer. When we decided to do this, we knew the cost was $72.00 for 6 months ($144 per year) but we decided we would absorb that cost and not make it a condition of joining, and if members wanted to make donations towards that, it would be gratefully accepted (see link below about cost of meetup group). We have checked other meetup groups, some charge an annual fee such as $10 a year but problem with that is that not all members equally active on the site or in attending meetups. Another option is to collect donations from those who attend the meetups as they typically are the most active members. If we have 12 meetups a year, we would only need to collect $12.00 at each meetup to cover our costs, say a donation of $2.00 each for those attending the meetups. We wanted to put this out there so we can discuss on Sunday, but also if any of you inclined to bring a donation, whatever the amount. We want to make it clear that we will not boot people off the site if they don't donate; we are all at different places financially and also in our time and how involved we will be with this group. We have gotten tremendous satisfaction out of doing the site and seeing it grow. Barbara belongs to a Seattle and area corgi meetup group (has 100 plus members!) which has been going for years with picnics, hikes and camping. Let's hope our group is equally successful and keeps going for years to come. Kathleen, Assistant Organizer and Barbara, Organizer, Corgis of B.C. http://www.meetup.com/help/Does-it-cost-money-to-start-a-Meetup-Group/
