What we're about

Welcome and thank you for considering "Ladies Making a Difference"! This is a private group for ladies only. Our members like to get together for various activities such as meeting at a coffee spot just to chat, having wine at a Happy Hour, or themed parties and potlucks in member’s home. Many of us also enjoy the charitable aspect of our group where we are involved with fundraisers and volunteering with several small local charities.

Please note that we have annual dues of $10.00. This charge is due by the last day of the month that you join. If you are uncertain of the group, you may want to join at the beginning of the month and attend a few events first. We reserve the right to delete memberships that are not paid in this manner. You may pay by cash to any Organizer, PayPal or Zelle. Thank you for understanding that this is a volunteer organization and we try to keep things as simplified as possible.

Although there isn't an age requirement for this group, you will find that most members are in their 40's through 70's.

Event locations: Please be aware that most posted events are located in Henderson and SE/SW Las Vegas, although we also do things downtown and on the west side (Summerlin) occasionally.

Our Mission:

The mission of the Ladies Making a Difference is to ensure that our events bring joy, fun, laughter and great memories to our members. Our activities are as diverse as the ladies in the group and respect is always the order of the day. Our goal is to have fun and relax while building friendships. We strive to maintain a "drama free" group where respect for each other is of utmost importance. Our group is a harmonious one and it will remain so.

Important information you should know when considering "Ladies Making a Difference":

Profile – You MUST provide a picture of yourself in your profile. To ensure the safety of all our members your profile picture must be clear enough that you can be recognized when attending an event.

Check your emails and Meetup messages regularly- a lot of our information comes through the app notifications and this is the best way for you to keep updated. If you find you are not receiving notifications please check your membership settings for this group. Also, once you are a member you can join our Facebook page for additional updates/info.

RSVP’s – are taken very seriously, particularly for house parties! Please RSVP with integrity! Do not RSVP until or unless you are sure you can attend. "No Shows" and frequent cancellations will not be tolerated. Not only is a "no show" rude to to the hostess and/or venue where the event is held, it keeps those on the waiting list from attending an event that they really want to attend. If you have an issue that will keep you from attending an event that you committed to, please change your RSVP at least one day before the event so the hostess has time to contact the next person on the waiting list. If you have an emergency the day of the event, please e-mail or call the hostess to let her know. Be aware, repeated "no shows" or cancellations will result in removal from the group.

Attendance – We require new members attend an event in a public place before being allowed to attend events in a private home. Happy Hours or Monthly Coffees are a great way to introduce yourself to our group.

Solicitation – We are a social group, not an avenue for our members to sell products or services. There are other Meet-up groups out there for business and sales networking. We are all about having fun, socializing, and relaxation. FOR THIS REASON, WE HAVE CHOSEN TO MAKE IT A POLICY TO NOT ALLOW PROMOTING PRODUCTS AND/OR SERVICES AT ANY OF OUR EVENTS. We will, however, send out from time to time information on "No Host" charity events that some members may be interested in attending on their own.

We encourage our members to be involved. We do not believe that the number of members in a group is as important as how many actually participate. The Organizers of this group will review the membership roster on a quarterly basis and reserve the right to remove members who have not attended an event in 90 days.

A note about guests: while guests will be welcome at most public events, we limit attendance at our home parties to our members only due to limited space.

Ideas – The goal of the Organizers is to provide a great variety of events for members to participate in. We truly appreciate ideas from our members as well as those who volunteer to host an event either in their home or elsewhere. Please give us your ideas regarding events you think would be fun, relaxing and/or provide an opportunity for personal growth for our ladies. It would be especially helpful if you provide detailed information about your ideas.

Organizers reserve the right to revise the above as needed.
