Long Beach Geek Event Attendance Policy

Attendees may RSVP up until the day before the event (unless otherwise mentioned in the event announcement). Last-minute or waitlist RSVPs will be administered by the event host and up to their discretion and/or within reason. Public events not hosted by Long Beach Geeks (LBG), such as festivals or conventions, are subject to the attendance rules outlined by the event organizers.

For non-public events hosted by a member, either at private location or in a public place where reservations will be required, “yes” RSVPs are obligated to inform the host or the group via the MeetUp site, app, Facebook page, or directly contact the host if they are unable to attend. LBG recognizes that everyone has obligations and responsibilities outside of the group, and that life can be unexpected. The LBG non-attendance policy is as follows:


Prior to Event: RSVPs can be cancelled on the MeetUp page/app or FaceBook group page (wherever the event is announced) up until the day before the event, unless otherwise noted by the organizer, without notice or penalty.

Day of Event: RSVP cancellations must notify the organizer via the MeetUp page/app or FaceBook group page (wherever the event is posted/announced), or directly by phone/text. Cancellations at this point will be marked as “Didn’t attend” without penalty.

48 hours after event: “Yes” RSVPs that did not cancel or attend has 48 hours after the event to notify event organizer that they were not able to attend. RSVPs that did not attend or cancel after 48 hours will be marked as “No Show”.


First No-Show: You will get a reminder of the cancellation policy.
Second No-Show: Second reminder of policy and risk of third strike
Third No-Show: You will be not be allowed to RSVP future LBG events or moved off waitlists unless you contact the group leadership for permission to attend.
Repeat No-Shows: Removal from the group and will have to re-apply to join, pending leadership approval.

There is NO penalty for multiple RSVP cancellations so long as they adhere to the attendance policy guidelines.

This policy is to simply encourage common courtesy and common sense approach to RSVPs. LBG understands that schedules can conflict or change, and this is to help respect membership and organizers who put in the time and effort to make fun LBG events.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the LBG leadership.
