Pls read the items below before sending your request:
****Our members can't belong to more than 8 meetup grps?
Lot of members just join the grp without ever participating in any meetups. We'd much rather have a small group of dedicated friends, than high numbers with low participation Since we are very strict about member participation, if you are already a member of more than 7 meetup groups , we’ll sadly decline your request to be a part of this group. No exception.
****Is your membership info public? If not, then pls make it public before sending a request . If your meetup membership is not public, there is no way for me to know how many groups you belong to/whether you are over committed. You don't have to post your photo (if you want little privacy), but your membership has to be public.
****If you are approved, you must sign up for a meetup within 24 hours You must pick a meetup scheduled within 60 days of your joining date.
****If you work on Saturdays or you have lot of family commitments on Saturdays, pls don't join this group because all of our lunch meetups are on Saturdays.
****You are expected to attend at least one meetup every 60 days Once in a while , you might have to skip two meetups in a row due to sickness in the family or other family things in which case you just try to make-up and not miss too many future meetups. As long as you have attended 6 meetups by the end of the year, you should be fine.
****Existing members pay their dues when I collect during our January and February meetup (If January or February meetup is cancelled due to bad weather, pay by end of March). New members pay their dues within 60 days of joining the grp.
This is a group for women over 50 (married/single) but if you're not 50 yet & would like to join, you're more than welcome. Just be aware that this group is not into the bar scene. It's not about meeting men. It's about good old-fashioned girlfriends hanging out, laughing, going places together, enjoying life and having fun.
We’re a West Suburban based group. We normally do things around Naperville/Aurora/Lombard/Wheaton areas. If you don't live close to Naperville, pls don't send a request to be included in the group because it will be hard for you to participate in all of our activities.
NOTE- I pay meetup organization $66 dollars (the exact amount is $65.94) every six months ($132 dollars per year). - So I collect $5 dollars membership fees (per year). Pls note that you don't have to pay anything on your first meetup. We would like you to try the first meetup and make sure that you like the group before paying the membership, so you pay the membership on your second meetup. At the end of the year, members will be entered into a drawing to win the leftover money.
****Your meetup membership must be public all the time so that we know how many meetup groups you belong to.
****Two no-shows-you'll be removed from the grp. So pls change your RSVP if you can't make it to the meetup.
