We're a group of lovely young(20s and 30s) people who like to meet up to socialise and attend events around Newcastle and the North East. Whether you're new to the area or just want to meet new people and try new things, come and join us!
A few small things:
What is a "Young Professional"? Anyone in their 20s or 30s. We don't really mind about the professional bit - it just makes us sound fancier.
RSVPing: Everyone is welcome to any event, whether you've just joined or you're a veteran. If you RSVP to an event and change your mind later, please change your RSVP so we know who to expect.
If an event has limited spaces and you cannot turn up, it is extra important that you update your RSVP. This is because you may be preventing someone else from taking that space. Repeat offenders might find their space is denied at future events where there are limited spaces.
What we are about: Are you looking to make friends outside of work/further education? Then this is the group for you! Our main aim is to bring people together at fun and interesting events.
Note: if you're just looking for "love", we recommend you join a dating site. That said if you do ask someone out etc., please remember that no means no, there are plenty more fish in the sea. Also we don't recommend messaging loads of members hoping for a date, people talk and it doesn't make anyone feel special.
Membership fee: There is no fee to join the group. If you liked an event, offer to buy the host a drink...they're all volunteers.
Suggestions: Any suggestions or issues should be sent to Alex. This is so that we can continue to improve the group. We like to think the group is really good, however if something isn't right, please let us know.
Hosting: There are a limited number of Event Organisers, however that doesn't mean you can't suggest or possibly host some events. Contact the main organiser (Alex) with your ideas. More events will make it a more enjoyable group :)
So that everyone is on the same page, anyone hosting should be familiar with the "Dos and Don'ts" for hosting: http://tiny.cc/ede1cz
