Our group is a fun, social, stress-free environment of diverse women who are thoughtful, responsible, and supportive of one another. We participate in a variety of activities including happy hours, hiking, biking, kayaking, yoga, dinners, movies, concerts, shopping, comedies, trapeze, yes trapeze.. you name it! If you have a suggestion, please let us know. We are always eager to try something new! 😊
If you would like to join our group, you MUST post a personal photo (no scenery shots or pet photos). You will also need to answer a couple of short questions that introduce you to other group members. Lastly, you must adhere to our policies or you will be removed from the group. With that said, please see our new 2020 Policies below:
Policy Changes for 2020
1). YEARLY DUES - We require a one-time annual dues of $15.00 for the year which will be expected on or before your first event in 2020. You can Zelle Pay or Paypal the monies to us. Please contact Sherry (Organizer) or Renee (Co-Organizer) for our email and/or cell number which you will need to make the payment, or if you need assistance.
There will be no minimum required events that you need to attend throughout the year. However, if you have not attended at least one event throughout the calendar year, we will contact you at the end of the year to inquire about your group membership.
This annual fee covers the monthly MeetUp dues and occasional fees associated with group events. If your money is not received on or prior to the first event that you sign up for in 2020, you will be removed from the group. You can always sign up again if you were removed. However, if you sign up again, you will be expected to pay the dues at that time.
***This is a change to the 2019 procedure whereby nominal dues were collected at some of our events. This new procedure helps us maintain better organization and consistency among members who pay their dues. No individual event fees will be charged throughout the year in lieu of this new one time annual requirement.
Please note, we do not use the MeetUp Payment system because they charge a fee to use their internal payment platform. We use ZellePay or PayPal because these services can be used free of charge.
2) RSVPs- There will be a strict two time no-show policy. We understand that things come up and that you sometimes need to change your RSVP. However, if your RSVP is not changed within 4 hours of the time of the MeetUp event, you will be considered a no-show. After two no-shows, you will be removed from the group. It is only fair to other members in the group who would have liked to have signed up for an event and were not able to because there were limited openings available. It is also the considerate and responsible thing to do among friends.
3) GUESTS - The purpose of this group is to meet new people and make new friends. Bringing guests who are non members to events is ONLY allowed when it is indicated on the event posting. However, the majority of our events are limited to our group members only. The non member friend is always welcome to join the group.
4) PERSONAL BUSINESS - We strictly prohibit the use of this group and its events for soliciting business, clients, or customers for one’s own personal/commercial benefit. If it discovered that any member is engaging in this activity, they will be removed from the group. This is a social group and not to be used as a platform for members to promote their personal businesses.
5) EVENT INFORMATION - Please be sure to read the event posting in its entirety. All pertinent information (date, time, place, meeting spot, reservations, etc.) will be posted if they are available. On occasion, some information may not be available but will be added ASAP. There may be times you may see “Save the Date” in which case details will be posted as soon as they are available.
MESSAGE FROM THE ORGANIZERS- We strive to be a group that is as welcoming, friendly and successful as possible within these simple parameters. In our first year, we have developed an awesome group of strong, funny, thoughtful women who are really fun, spirited, and just plain cool to hang with.
We look forward to a fabulous 2020, getting to know more of you, and building even greater friendships.
