This group is dedicated to women who want to expand their social circle and meet new, interesting people. Maybe you have outgrown your friends, some may have gotten married and moved on to having a family, others have moved away, or maybe you are new to the city. Regardless of why you find yourself in our group, we are here to help!
Please note that this group is geared towards women in the 20s to mid-40s age range who desire to live an active social life and engage with new, like-minded friends. Meetup events will primarily focus on activities enjoyed by this demographic, and may not feel comfortable for members outside of it. If you do attend a couple events with us and find this the case, no hard feelings should you decide to leave our group. Life is about having experiences and we want your time in ELMG to be a good one. There are many meetup groups in the Edmonton area, and you may find that there is another one which is a better fit for you.
Nervous about attending your first meetup? That's okay, it's totally normal to feel that way. It is scary to go to a venue alone and sit with a bunch of people you don't know. Don't worry - we are all friendly, and we have been there. Remember that we are all here for the same reasons - to make new, lasting friendships. You may find that you connect a little more easily with some people and maybe not as much with others, but that's all part of the fun! Everyone has something special and positive to offer. Please remember that disrespectful, judgmental comments or behaviours are not permitted at our meetups and may lead to a member being removed or permanently banned from the group. The premise of this group is to welcome new friends.
That being said, as a member of our fantastic group we expect you to be active. That means, RSVPing to events and attending events. If you NO SHOW without any explanation, you may face removal from the group. We want to keep this group upbeat, fun and active - just like our members.
The fine print: there is a $5 annual membership to be a member of this group. Membership will be due July 1 of every year.
If you have any questions or concerns, please never hesitate to send a message to any of the organizers. We are always willing to help you out!
