CODE OF CONDUCT | ETIQUETTE | COMMON SENSE
Most of this goes without saying… We don’t have rules as such, but we do have some expectations
We value our members, our hosts and the wider community.
Members of our Social Group are asked to show their organizers, event hosts, sponsors, and other members in the community the utmost courtesy & respect. The organizer and/or event host are expected to have complete control of the event at all times.
Disrespect or harassment… Any kind will of disrespect or harassment will not be tolerated. If you feel you've been a victim of such behaviour please bring it to the organizer's attention via private message.
If disrespect or harassment is reported about you, then you may be removed and banned from the group. learn more about harassment here (http://www.antidiscrimination.justice.nsw.gov.au/Pages/adb1_antidiscriminationlaw/adb1_harassment.aspx)
We are NOT a dating group.... We are NOT a singles group! We promote social inclusion for EVERYONE without any pressure or expectations. There are plenty of other meetup groups and websites specifically for dating. Please join one of those if you are looking for singles and dating.
Comments on events... We welcome you to interact and comment on any event, but please be sure that your comments are related to that particular event, to avoid any confusion for other members. Remember that everyone can see your post! It is a PUBLIC forum and comments cannot be removed after an event has finished.
Your own safety and privacy… It is in your own interest NOT to share your personal information (eg. mobile number) on any public website! If someone needs to contact you from the meetup group, then they can send a private email message and vice versa.
Our event hosts do a fantastic job... their role is voluntary and they go above and beyond to make the event successful in more ways than you may realise. We feel very fortunate to have such wonderful hosts.
The organizer & co-organizer are responsible for ongoing costs and are locked into a contractual agreement with meetup.com (their rules, boundaries and obligations).
The organizer & co-organizer make the final decision based on their own values and the needs of the members. They are responsible for the logistics and operations of all aspects of the group (website, social media, event management, code of conduct etc).
If you have any questions or concerns… please contact the organizer or co-organizer by private email.
We hope you enjoy attending our events, and look forward to seeing you soon :)
