What we're about
Calling all naturally curly SiStars, let us come together and show off our coils. Have you ever been out and seen a group of BLACK women looking beautiful. But it's always that one sexy natural woman in the mix that stand out. You say to yourself what if all them were natural, how beautiful would that be. Well this group is for you because of that thought. Those who have always loved their natural coils and who are returning to their naturally coiled roots. Let’s get together and help each other with ideas about our natural hair, meet up for breakfast, lunch or dinner, catch a movie, go horseback riding, go bowling, cheer on a local sport team, go dancing, conference call check-in or just meet up and show off our beautiful coils to the world. This meet up is for us by us who wants to talk about and show off their natural curls, coils, kinks and knots. Even if you haven't done the big chop but is thinking about it you are welcome as well. Please feel free to suggest things, share your ideas and uplift us all. My mission is to keep all natural SiStars encouraged to stay true to their natural coils and love it day by day.
Fees Cover the cost of the meetup group, rental space for our natural hair discussion and product swarp, discounted concert tickets and a end of (school) year youth event.
GROUP STANDARDS & POLICIES
•Membership dues are $13.00/annually and are collected in January or within 30 days of being accepted in the group. Unless your membership dues have NOT been paid. Dues can be paid in (2) two payments (if that helps) in cash only and are non-transferable & non-refundable. Dues are used to help keep our Meetup.com site running and also to fund an end of school youth event held in July. Volunteers are needed and welcome for that event.
•A lot of time & preparation goes into ensuring that our meetups are a success. Therefore, our "No Call/No Show" policies are in strict effect. Attendance will be taken at every meetup event. Members who RSVP "Yes" to a meetup event and fail to show up (no-call, no-show) will be immediately removed from the group after the 3rd occurrence. You can always rejoin when you have more time for the group. Please use your best judgment before RSVP'ing to an event. If you are unsure, it is okay to wait while you check your schedule, book a sitter, put money aside, etc. However, if you can not make it to an event that you have RSVP'd, please simply update your status accordingly at least 24 hours prior to the starting time of that event to avoid being marked as a "No-Call/No-Show". Exemptions to this rule are at the discretion of the Group as a whole and will be made on a case-by-case basis only in extreme circumstances.
•The Meetup Calendar will be OPEN to suggested meetups, with the full understanding that, if you (as a member) suggest a meetup, then you (as a member) are electing yourself to serve as the Hostess & Coordinator of that meetup. It would be your responsibility to attend the meetup, answer any questions before/after the meetup, handle any fees associated with the meetup, take group attendance at the meetup, etc. Ultimately, the Event Host (you) would be responsible for the coordination and to ensure a smooth success. Should you merely want to "spread the word" about an upcoming event of interest and are unsure of your own attendance or simply not want to serve as the Event Host, please share the event on our DISCUSSION BOARD rather than making it an actual meetup. Our Discussion Board is used as a method of communication among our group. Please check for updates & postings frequently. The discussion board is open to ALL members of our group. Need a hairstylist? Place it on the Discussion Board. Need a sitter for a date night? Place it on the Discussion Board. Want to Step out on the town for a last minute club night? Place it on the Discussion Board. Have a job lead? Place it on the Discussion Board. Have a prayer request? Place it on the Discussion Board. See, the possibilities are endless!
•For safety & security purposes, "In-Home" meetups (events hosted at someone's home or private location) will be CLOSED to First-Time members (those who have not yet attended a prior meetup with our group) unless otherwise noted. It is at the hostess' discretion as to whether she will permit First-Timers to attend a meet up in her home or private location. Please do not RSVP for a closed "In-Home" meetup if you are a First Timer and have not yet gotten approval from the Event Hostess.
Also a pic of YOU is also needed to let everyone know that you are a SiStar.
•The Naturally Curly SiStars group is a SOLICITATION-FREE zone!! Solicitation of products, services, etc. is NOT permitted, whatsoever. Should any member be contacted via phone, email, or in-person with a solicitation request, please let your Organizer know promptly. Members who solicit or contact other members without their request will be immediately removed & banned from the group. This is a STRICT policy! Our members do NOT wish to feel bombarded, pressured, overwhelmed, or caught off-guard from random solicitations of any kind including: insurance sales, weight loss products, financial programs, etc. Should any member have a service or product that they provide and wish to share, please feel free to share it on the Discussion Board. If someone show an interest in it then and only then you may showcase it at one of our Meet & Greet (M&G) meetups. Soliciting to group members outside of a M&G event is strictly prohibited and will result in immediate termination from the group.
