PLEASE NOTE, this is not a group for people who currently don’t have children but plan to in 10 or 15 years. Women in this group have made the conscious choice to be forever childfree - it’s our *safe place* to come together.
This is a group for women (married, single, coupled, straight, queer, etc. - all welcome) in the Minneapolis and Saint Paul metro area, who have made the decision to have a childfree life!
Do you sometimes feel marginalized because so much of society is geared toward families with children?
Have you found your social life waning as friends decide to have children?
If you are childfree and happy with your choice, and want to socialize with other like-minded women in the Twin Cities, let's get together. The possibilities are limitless (because we don't have to call a sitter for the kids)!
Our RSVP, Waitlist, No-Show Policy:
To insure everyone has an opportunity to enjoy our group events, please only RSVP when you intend to participate in an event.
• IF you have a confirmed spot for a meetup event where reservations have been made ahead of time at an establishment AND you do not show up (“NO-SHOW”) you will be removed from the group immediately.
• IF you have a confirmed spot for a meetup event where there aren’t reservations made at an establishment ahead of time and you do not show up you will be allowed a one-time exception. The second no-show will result in immediate removal from the group.
• IF you have a confirmed spot for a meetup event and change your attendance status to ‘NO’ (not attending) less than 24 hours prior this is considered a NO-SHOW.
• IF you are on the WAITLIST for an event, you are responsible for monitoring your status. Don’t assume you won’t get a spot. If you move from the WAITLIST to an open spot and don’t attend it will be considered a no-show, unless your spot opened up less than 24 hours before the start of the meetup.
Confused? Too many IFs to keep straight????
The simple way not to be concerned about the above is to keep your RSVP status updated at all times and remember which events you are on the a Waitlist for.
MORE ON WAIT LISTS
Sign up! It's inevitable, plans change and people will change their RSVP to 'NO' as the date of an outing approaches. Chances are if you're on the wait list you'll end up being able to attend.
Be sure to join the private facebook group, too. We're hoping to build up the fb group for more impromptu-type outings.
