GROUP POLICIES: We’re a low key family friendly group, that do not require a bunch of rules. However, the following help manage expectations and keep us all on the same page!
1. Professionals: One needn’t be a doctor, lawyer, architect, or have an advanced degree (or any degree). Retired and unemployed professionals are still professionals and are welcome. Managers, directors, business owners, thespians, artists, professional dancers, community leaders, entrepreneurs ect... We're a mixed bag of many different folks.
2. Photos: We Take photos of members at Meetups and Events, some members are camera shy and leery of having their digital image blasted onto the Internet. the group organizer, assistant organizers and some members will take photos and will post them only to our group website. Anyone not wanting their photo(s) posted,please feel free to email the group organizer or assistant organizer, and we will remove them!
3. Six Month Rule: any member with a non-working email will be removed from the group (without prejudice) and from Meetup if the member doesn't log in to the Meetup website for six months, and after having trouble emailing them. Head Quarters will remove you! and not by my own doing!
4. No Cyber-Trolling: This isn’t a dating service or a hookup group. Do not troll through the member profiles emailing and posting greetings with dating or hookup intentions. Please consult Craigslist for these services. Any member found to be cyber-trolling will be removed from the group (with prejudice). This is not meant to discourage our members from using our site to communicate - we encourage all members to stay in touch and to get to know each other using our website as a tool. What you do on your own, is up to you, please just keep our web page Family Friendly.
5. Please Refrain: From posting nude pictures or pornagraphic web links! or you will be removed without question!!
6. Always RSVP: Even if your RSVP is NO. a YES RSVP is great, but a NO is okay too. And REMEMBER, a RSVP is a social commitment. Your hosts and organizers go to great lengths and often personal expense to make these events fun and enjoyable. It is also important that we accurately forecast attendance with our host venues. If you are unable to show up, please update your RSVP a minimum of six hours before the start time of the event. RSVPing also keeps you from receiving ALL of the reminder emails for an event… so RSVP early.
7. Crazy Aunt Rule: Ours is a family and like all families we have many different shapes, sizes, personalities, interests, etc. All of us get along better with some than we do with others – that’s natural. What’s required is that everyone be respectful, even when you believe the person to your right reminds you of your crazy aunt. Trouble makers and drama queens will be removed from the group (with prejudice).
8. Group Harmony: If a member proves to be harmful to group harmony, disrespectful, hurtful, or contrary they will be removed from the group (with prejudice).
