A virtual homeschooling cooperative for families to connect and share interests through park days, community service, classes, trips, tours and more.
MEMBER AGREEMENT AND GROUP POLICIES:
Please read before you join! By joining the group, you agree to the following:
This is a cooperative, member-run (unmoderated) group. This means members agree to make an effort to both attend and post events.
The group "owners/organizers" are such in name only--we try to maintain the Meetup group site for members to use, but will neither attend all events nor know the details of all of them, so please email the event "host" if you have a question about a posted event.
Everyone knows that plans change, but PLEASE remember to update your RSVP if you can no longer attend a Meetup, giving enough time for the people on the waiting list to take your spot.
Members should charge no more than the actual cost of admission (e.g., museum entrance, class/material fees, or theater tickets). You must also clearly state the refund policy and, when permitted by the venue, allow members to fill their spots in the event they cannot attend.
Members should be considerate of other members and be responsible for his/her family's behavior and safety and help foster a friendly and nonviolent atmosphere. Please do not engage in bullying, harassment, flaming, or other aggressive behavior in-person or on-line.
Members who are recognized to be failing to uphold group policies may be removed from the group.
This is a virtual group with open membership--anyone on the Internet can join. Please use common sense when participating, as you would do in other online communities, and don't send out personal information (such as your address or phone number, for example) to members you do not know.
We hope to meet you soon! Happy posting!
HOW TO POST:
Go to "group tools" drop-down menu and select "schedule a Meetup."
Please note that when you post a new event, though it will appear on the website immediately, there may be a short delay (up to 24 hours) before your event is announced (emailed) to other members with you designated as the event "host." Once you are designated the host, you can add an RSVP limit to your post. If you are advertising a paid series of classes, please only post the first meeting date, so that all members aren't receiving reminders every week in their inboxes.
Those who post frequently and consistently (multiple well-rated posts a month) can be added as event organizers, so that you can announce your event without a delay.
Please note that we don't currently have a working Paypal account for the auto-pay option, so please select "offline" as the payment option and include your Paypal email address in your description of the trip (or make other arrangements for payment). (You will not receive money if you check the Paypal option, as it is not currently linked to a Paypal account!)
HOW TO RSVP:
When you RSVP, please remember to add the TOTAL number of guests you will be bringing. If you don't do so, you may not have the necessary number of spots needed to attend. To add guests, select "Change RSVP" (green button) to add your guests.
