What we're about

Otley Area Meetup provides local events for local people and attempts to fill a gap between the successful groups that surround us in Ilkley, Harrogate and Leeds. We are a new group and it will take some time to build momentum. Please support us by attending events!

We welcome suggestions and hosts for one-off or regular events. If you have a suggestion, please contact a member of the leadership team using Meetup messages, or start a discussion on the discussion board.

Membership Donations

This is a non-profit group, run by local volunteers for the benefit of local members. It is free to join, but we are charged a bi-annual fee by meetup.com. At most events you will be asked to make a small contribution toward these running costs.

Monies received will be documented and evidence of this will be available upon request. Excess funds will be donated to our chosen charity, which for 2018 is Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Some events may require a deposit payable to the event venue. This deposit does not go toward running this group and will usually be deducted from your bill at the venue itself, e.g. a restaurant. The event host will explain the reason for a deposit in the event description and provide payment instructions. Deposits are non-refundable, except by arrangement with the event venue and event host.

Membership Guidelines

1. When you sign up to attend a group event you do so on the understanding that you are meeting with a group of friends and that this group, it's organisers and event hosts have no legal duty of care to you as a member or to any guests. You accept that the group's organisers and event hosts accept no liability for any accident or loss occurring from, or for any injuries arising out of, participation in this group's activities. You remain responsible for your own property, personal safety and wellbeing at all times. It is your sole responsibility to ensure that events you attend are suitable for your own personal circumstances

2. If you are unable to attend an event, please update your RSVP as soon as possible. Some events will, by their nature, have a limit on the number of people that can attend. Updating your RSVP as soon as your plans change gives someone else the chance to come along. Please be considerate to other members and only book onto events that you have a reasonable expectation of attending. Repeated no-shows are unfair to event organisers and other members and will result in your removal from the group.

3. Our policy is that you have a profile picture that allows you to be recognised by other members. This is particularly helpful when you or other members are trying to locate the group at the start of a meetup event.

4. We are committed to creating a friendly, inclusive and welcoming environment for all our members. If you experience any form of abuse, discrimination or harassment from another member at one of our events, or through the meetup.com website, please do not hesitate to contact an organiser.

5. Our policy is to maintain a membership roster that is current and active. From time to time we will review members' activity and may remove members who have not visited the group pages for three calendar months. You are free to rejoin at any time.

6. Organisers may post their mobile number on events for your convenience. Please only contact them about that event. If you want to contact an organiser about anything else, please use Meetup messages.
