No-Show Policy

Dear fellow bookworms,

Life can be stressful and sometimes unexpected events will keep you - last minute - from attending a meetup that you already signed up for. I completely understand and appreciate you letting me know somehow that you won't be able to attend.
Many of us are members in other meetup groups as well and just forget from time to time that they rsvped for an event.
However, that makes it difficult for me to plan ahead and make reservations for our meetups, since I have a hard time estimating the number of women actually showing up.
In order to help the wonderful team at our venue to serve us better and make my life as an organizer a bit easier, I decided to establish a no-show policy. For now, I decided not to "punish" anyone for a late cancellation, though.

What counts as a no-show?

  • A person that rsvped for a meeting and fails to attend without changing their status or contacting the organizer
  • A guest that doesn't show up: You are responsible for your guests.

What happens to no-shows?

The name of the member will be put on a no-show list. If the member does not show up to meetups without cancellation 3 times in a row, she will be removed from the group. The name of the member will be removed from the no-show list if she attends meetings she rsvped for 3 times in a row.

The no-show policy is effective immediately. No-shows will be counted ongoing from August 2012.

Thank you for understanding the necessity of this policy and for being an active member in our group!

Looking forward to our next meetup,
