Before you request to join this group, A current *clear * facial * photo * of *only * you * is REQUIRED * for group membership.
We are a fun-loving group of women at the stage in life where we are free to enjoy ourselves and embrace what life has to offer. Our members are new to the greater Portland area or natives, married or single, professional or non-professional, working or retired - with one thing in common – we enjoy connecting with other women in our age group. We love to try new restaurants or go to old favorites, attend movies or live performances, get together for happy hours or meet for coffee and conversation, go for walks or hikes, shop or travel. We are up for anything and everything! Everyone has a voice in our group and suggestions are always welcomed and you can even organize events if you wish! So, if you are a feisty 55+ woman looking for some new friends to share some fun, let us welcome you to our group.
NOTE: IF YOU ARE TARGETING AN AUDIENCE FOR EVENTS, BUSINESS START-UPS, SPECIAL OFFERS, ETC., NO SUCH SOLICITATIONS WILL BE PASSED ON TO OUR MEMBERS. NO EXCEPTIONS!
1. Event organizers are volunteers who spend a great deal of their own time researching and planning an event so when you arrive you can relax and enjoy yourself. Be respectful of the organizer. If you have any comments or criticism either keep it to yourself or bring it up with the organizer privately. And if you want to become an Event Organizer and host your own events, let us know. Always looking for more activities.
2. A current clear facial photo of only you is REQUIRED for group membership. Use the Organizer's photo as the example of what we are asking you to post. No hats, sunglasses, other people, places, pets or things - just your face - sorry ladies, no exceptions! You will be DECLINED without the required photo and asked to resubmit. We need to be able to recognize you.
3. No-shows and last minute cancellations are NOT ACCEPTABLE. We understand that life happens but as a courtesy to other members on the wait list and the event organizers and venue, please change your RSVP online in a timely fashion. After THREE (3) No Shows or habitual last minute cancelations, a member will be removed from the group! Some events may require a Reservation Fee. If you are on a WAITLIST it is your responsibility to check your status 48 hours BEFORE the event and to change your RSVP to NO. If you are on the GOING list and your plans change, please change your RSVP to NO no later than 48 hours prior to the event. This will allow a member from the WAITLIST to have adequate notice that their status has changed to GOING.
4. Be respectful of other members.
5. Some events may require a Waiver of Liability.
6. Dues: There is a One Time cost of $10.00 to help cover the Meetup fees. Meetup keeps $1.25 to cover credit card processing and sends me the remaining $8.75. Once you have paid, I will mark your Dues Status as EXEMPT to prevent any further Dues request from Meetup. If you have paid Dues in one of my other groups (Portland Patron of the Arts or 45+ Social Friends), please send me a private message on Meetup Messenger and I will mark your Dues Status as EXEMPT. You need only pay for one group to join one, two, or all three for one low price.
We reserve the right to remove someone from the group for: violating any of these rules or exhibiting inappropriate behavior.
