What we're about

Welcome to the San Diego International Meetup group!

We're a group of fun and adventurous individuals interested in multi-cultural exchanges and experiences. We have native English speakers from America as well as many English as a Second Language (ESL) speakers from all over the world. We love to get together for conversation over coffee and food, hiking, eating at restaurants, participating in cultural activities, etc. We seek to build an international community of people who are interested in learning about and understanding different cultures, making friendships across nations, creating unity through diversity, and most of all, having tons of fun! We love this group and we're very proud to be a part of such a wonderful circle of friends from around the world. Join us sometime! If you feel like this group is a fit, we'd love to meet you!

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Just a few group policies:

RSVPing for events:

-Standard events: We understand that life happens and now and then you may miss an event that you signed up for but please do your best to keep your RSVP up to date. Organizers are volunteers who do a lot of work to create great events for us all!

-"No Flake" events: If you miss more than two of these events without updating your rsvp you will be removed from the group. Some events require that the host have an accurate idea of how many people are attending, as they may have to reserve a table or other accommodations for a certain # of people and there may be a waitlist. I have asked my organizers to note this in the write up for these types of events and if members miss two of these types of events without updating their RSVP or contacting the organizer then they will be subject to removal from the group.

Regardless of the type of event, please try to keep your RSVP up to date, even if it's a last minute change; organizers and other members are looking forward to seeing you! Let's not disappoint them :)

Profile Pictures: We require that you post a profile picture so when you and other members attend events, it will be easier for everyone to recognize each other and find the group! If you find that posting your picture is drawing unwanted posts and emails from trolls, see below and contact us.

Harassment... for the .01% that don't understand Meetup.com: Meetup is a forum designed to meet people in person in a casual, group setting. We're here to make new friends and if by chance, you end up dating someone, great! However, this is NOT an online dating forum; please join Match or Cupid for that. Cruising people's profiles and contacting them through the website for dating purposes will not be tolerated. If someone is emailing you through your profile in an inappropriate manner, please contact us so we can do our best to remedy the situation and keep this a fun and comfortable group!

Suggestions: If you have suggestion for the group or would like to lead an event, please let us know!

Thanks for being a part of our group and I hope you have a great experience!
