We encourage you to join and welcome you to the Milwaukee Wine Lovers.
New members may enjoy a one-time complimentary attendance at their first event prior to paying their membership dues (available within the first 30 days only).
Annual membership dues are currently $5 per person. Membership dues are required to be paid within 30 days of joining and before attending your second MWL event. This fee helps us to off-set the costs of maintaining this website and coordinating events. All membership dues must be paid one week prior to attending your second event. Each year membership dues will be re-evaluated and the price adjusted to cover projected costs. Once you sign up and pay your dues, you will be automatically billed each year. You will always be reminded before each charge, and you can cancel your membership at any time. Membership dues are non-refundable for canceled membership as a result of no-show or inactive participation.
In the spirit of active participation all members need to attend at least one event every four months to keep their membership active. Reminders will be provided to all events. So, please keep both your RSVPs to all events and your email address up to date.
Active Participation & No Shows:
Inactive participation or no-shows to RSVP'd events will result in canceled membership. Last minute cancellations after the deadline to RSVP will be treated as a no-show. A combination of no-show activity and inactive participation will result in cancellation of membership. No-shows and last minute cancellations are non-refundable for fee-based events after the RSVP deadline. If you have paid for an event and it is past the RSVP deadline and you are unable to attend at the last minute, please note that you will be forfeiting your event dues for that tasting event.
Many planned events require MWL to guarantee a minimum number of attendees. Milwaukee Wine Lovers reserves the right to have future RSVP's removed or placed on a waiting list to allow members in good standing to attend, if the event is reaching capacity. To avoid your reservation being canceled, pay your membership dues on time and update your RSVPs to all events as needed. Similar to other Meetup groups in the area, if you RSVP and are a no-show to ANY event at a commercial venue your membership with Milwaukee Wine Lovers will be canceled. An RSVP is a social commitment to yourself, the organizer and the rest of the group. If your plans change, please update your RSVP.
All members must post a profile picture of themselves and have a valid email within 30 days of joining. A picture of you with your pet, grandchild, children, etc is acceptable and must be posted in order to attend your first event with this group. We are often opening our homes to our members. This is a safety issue for those who do so and for those who attend. Leadership also likes to recognize new members when they arrive to their first tasting event and this enables us to know who you are when you arrive. Please let us know if there is an issue of personal security that prevents you from doing this. We are happy to accommodate. Please also make sure your email is set to receive Meetup email.
The organizers reserve the right to remove anyone from the group who violates these rules, does not fit the parameters of our group, has not paid dues, has a negative impact on the group, or endangers the safety and security of our members.
This group does not support promotion of any kind, including: marketing, products, or people. Any postings or actions of this type will be removed along with the person who posted it.
If you left MWL or your membership was canceled for non-activity, please wait at least 90 days before requesting membership renewal. Previous MWL members with no-show history will not be allowed membership. Upon acceptance of your renewed membership, please promptly pay your membership dues.
Thank you for taking the time to read our udated membership policy. We hope you will join our group and attend one of our events soon.
