Ocean Paddling Club Cleveland Pages
We appreciate your interest in the Ocean Paddling Club Cleveland Meetup and look forward to seeing you at our events. However, if you have not yet posted your picture, please do so.
We need a headshot photo of YOU added to you profile (not your child, pet or avatar), that easily identifies you to other members. That awesome photo you took recently is not acceptable. Choose a pic of YOU, without the one you love. The one you love can join, too. We ask members to include a photo for several reasons:
- It helps us identify you so we can welcome you when you attend your first event;
- It makes it easier for other members to recognize you as a new member and strike up a conversation with you; and
- We want the group to be active and members to actually participate in the events we schedule, and people who answer the profile questions and provide photos are more likely to get involved.
Some members have expressed another reason: knowing who to expect at a Meetup event. Many will not attend an event if they are not able to recognize other members by sight. It adds a layer of safety and comfort since our events are often held in areas where there aren’t a lot of other people around. Your picture is only visible to other group members.
No new members are being accepted without an identifiable picture, and anyone without a picture by May 20 will be removed as a member. Thanks, all.
