What we're about

This meetup is for anyone who is new to the area or just looking to expand that circle of friends. We are working to become a group that you can rely on to meet new people, try new things and experience Raleigh all while laughing and connecting with like-minded people. Our intent is to make this a fun place with diverse meetups so everyone can find something that interests them. Feel free to message one of your organizers if there's a particular event or adventure you'd like to see or if you'd like to become an event host! Always be mindful of the commitments you make with your RSVPs so that we are able to accommodate accordingly, but most of, let's have FUN!

Feel free to get connected with my running groups and Raleigh Self Defense Dojo to stay fit

MEETUP IS FAMILY This group is judgement and cliquey free and for members that are serious about attending events to meet the members of the group. We must have complete trust in one another and be willing to accept everyone. The goal is to be able to be friends outside of meetup as well. MEETUP IS NOT FACEBOOK Let's remember to be respectful to one another especially when we RSVP for a event. I doubt that anyone likes to wait for members who are not going to show up so please be mindful and change your RSVP or contact the host if there's a number you can reach them. I'm allowing everyone to host events based on their interest so everyone will get to be a organizer. Three no shows will get a member removed unless the host finds the excuse acceptable. Stuff like car breaking down emergencies where you can't contact the host etc will be acceptable. Please make sure let the host know early in advance if you change your RSVP. Trying to wait 30 minutes or less before the event starts or after the event starts will be considered a no show unless an emergency comes up. The host events would more likely be at the destination waiting for you by then. If you can't find the group contact the host regardless on how big or small the event is. Sometimes the host just wants you to stop by to say hi. We wouldn't stand up a real life friend date boss or doctor so let's treat the meetup host the same way. And make sure to pay attention to the details of the event so you can know what's going on and how to find everyone. After 6 months of not attending any events since you signed up you will be removed and be allowed to return when you can commit to attending the events. There's no point of being part of a Meetup group if you're not going to attend any events. The idea is to meet people that's why it's called Meetup and I'm allowing everyone to host events based on their interest. Whether or not you’re actually interested in the upcoming event or not it’s a good idea to try to attend anyways if possible just so you can get to meet the hosts and the other members attending the events. That also includes merging with another Meetup event. Any report of members being mean or not being accepting will lead to a permanent dismissal of the group. Feel free to report to me immediately if a host or a member been disrespectful or don't make you feel accepted and I will see to it that something gets done about it. Make sure to save my number. People are welcome to contact me anytime to say hello or to ask me questions about events or concerns and can find me on facebook under Anthony Earl Williams


Everyone must have a real photo for their profile. That's your identification to make sure that you are really you.
