Thank you for all of your comments over the past few days. It is great to have a membership that is so involved!
2012 was a great year for ZurieXpats. We also heard from our members that they wanted even more events for 2013 - and some of these events would require us to bring in someone who would have to be reimbursed and/or pay for a facility/insurance and therefore costs would be incurred. All events are coordinated by volunteers and we would like to avoid our volunteer organizers going further out of pocket for expenses. However, membership is not mandatory to enjoy any of the upcoming events. If someone would like to donate or secure a membership they will receive a discounted participation fee to our paid events. Or, if someone would like to volunteer 5 times, that would also qualify for a membership.
Please note: There will be no mandatory drop in fee for regular events, so please continue to enjoy in the same manner you are currently accustomed. We do ask that you RSVP in advance as space is reserved based on the numbers attending. If you prefer to keep you RSVP anonymous, please send one of the hosts a message and they will put you on the list.
We also understand that the inability of Meetup not allowing a SF option is a source of annoyance for many of you. We encourage you to contact Meetup at http://meetup.uservoice.com/forums/37079-ideas-and-suggestions-for-meetup/suggestions/2370806-add-swiss-franc-for-event-payments and share thoughts on this with them.
For those of you who wish to secure your membership, this can be done through PayPal or with one of our volunteer admin team.
Thanks again for participating in zurieXpat events, we look forward to seeing you soon!
