This meetup is for CURRENT AND FORMER MEMBERS of Maryland Area Separation Support (MASS). It exists to provide a social setting for those who may have gone through MASS and left due to marriage, dating, or other circumstance but want to retain the connections made in their great time with the MASS Group.
It also provides a place to post the private residence events (where we have always excluded new members for safety), and events of a "relaxed" social nature, such as Game Nights and Parties.
The support events, seminars, and outings in public venues will continue to be posted for the larger MASS population, and available to all MASS members.
Membership in this group REQUIRES participation with Maryland Area Separation Support (MASS) (http://www.meetup.com/separation/) first. You must be known by several of the "CORE" membership of MASS.
Q: Am I part of the "core" constituency of MASS?
A: If you aren't sure, then you probably aren't.
Anyone who is a frequent participant and/or event host, is. Being a core member requires more than just being a longstanding member in MASS. You must be known to those who attend the majority of events. You will have come to a few events at least. People will know your name and recognize you.
Q: Can I request to join again if I've been declined initially?
A: Absolutely! Once you've met the group members in MASS, please request to join again.
If you were declined, it was because we didn't yet know you well enough. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you in MASS first, and then eventually, MASS CORE.
