Veggie Meetup...semi-annual update

From: Joel
Sent on: Tuesday, October 8, 2013 11:55 AM

Hi everyone - From time to time I try to update you guys on things happening with the meetup group and solicit more feedback.  There are several main topics I'd like to cover (I'll keep this short!)

1. If you have had positive experiences with this group, please consider contributing the annual suggested membership dues.  This is not required, but we are experiencing quite a bit more overhead cost than in the past as a result of supplies, venue rental, movie viewings, etc.  I would appreciate your small donation to help us keep things moving.  If everyone in the group contributed only $2-5, we would really be able to offer significant speakers, etc.  Visit the homepage at and look in the right-hand column and click on "Suggested membership dues"

2. We are growing like never before, and I want to make this the best environment possible for new members.  Especially if you are new this year, please drop me a quick note and let me know how it's going or how we can make this a better group for you.

3. As for everyone else, thanks for your continued support.  We have had 84 meetups so far this year, and I hope everyone is enjoying the expanded number and type of things we are offering.

4. We are experiencing a higher than normal number of no-shows at events.  Please be courteous and update your RSVP (even at the last minute) to "Not Going" if your plans change.  Many of our events now have wait lists, so you could be taking the spot of someone who would want to attend.  Some groups have a "3 No Shows and you're out" policy.  I would rather not go to that extent, so please be cognizant of what you sign up for.

Thanks, and keep being awesome-
