Are you a 20s or 30s something living in Northwest Arkansas? Are you looking to connect with new people and expand your social circles? Then, join this meetup! We'll be hosting a variety of different events, hangouts, meetups, shenanigans in the NWA area so come check us out!
Attending your first meetup
Alright, alright - you've RSVP'd to your very first meetup. You've essentially taken the first step to making lots of rad, new friends. We're proud of you! But now, you're thinking "well, now what? How will I find these people?" Great question!
The best thing to do is to keep an eye on that event page itself. The group is very good about describing where they are located at the time of the event and what they look like so they are easy to find. Its better to ask questions about the event on the event page vs private messaging the host so that everyone attending that event can see the answer or help answer your question too!
Can't make it to the meetup that you signed up for?
Booooooo, you whore. Ok, just kidding. Honestly, this isn't a big deal but do us a favor and update your RSVP status. The meetup hosts put a lot of effort into hosting awesome events and there is nothing worse than planning for a big group and then only a few show.
Want to become a meetup host?
Amazing! Great idea! Yes yes yes! Before upgrading you to meetup host status, we like to see a few key behaviors first. This helps us keep the culture of our growing group fun, friendly, and welcoming.
1. Attend at least 3 events. Yes, 3. Before you host an event, its important that you get a feel for what the meetups are like and how this group interacts.
2. Learn 3 new names and use them at an event. People feel welcomed when you take the time to learn their names and actually use them. Plus, its just the nice thing to do.
3. Welcome new guests organically without being introduced. THIS IS HUGE. Don't make someone new walk up to the group and ask "is this the meetup group?" - beat them to the punch and smile and wave! Even if they aren't part of the meetup group!
These are not hard and fast rules by any means but they are a set of standards that we try to abide by as best we can.
