Being a part of a friendly and active group such as Maidenhead Social means you can cut out the awkwardness by attending events which are of interest to you. It also helps that most of the people who join are generally in the same situation so you've already got something in common.
Our numbers are smaller compared to a lot of other groups in Meetup because we vet our membership.
To join us:
Please upload a recent picture of yourself. We will decline fuzzy pictures or of your pets, celebrities or objects Pictures MUST be a close up. We need to be able to see who you are. Your meetup username should be made up at the very least, part of your real name. It should not be an abbreviation, fake name or of a business or organisation.
The whole idea is to make it easier to recognise you at events and for members to know who to expect. If you need to hide who you are then this is not the group for you.
Kindly fill out the profile page appropriately. It is an introduction to who you are and to let people get to know you a little before you arrive at an event. It also helps to stimulate conversation for example if you have a unique hobby, there are others who may want to speak to you about it!
Once you are a full member, you can attend as many events as you want and even organise your own events! There is no additional charge for attending events until your annual renewal.
Why a membership fee?
Everyone pays a membership to belong to the group and have access to the more private meets in people's homes. It has two purpose - incentives people to be an active participant of the community AND it helps the group run smoothly. It also allows us to do fun things like run competitions, pay for meals at mingles, subsidise events and cover our costs such as the Meetup membership, website, advertising and equipment. Everyone pays the same but what you get out of the group is entirely up to you.
1. We reserve the right to decline requests from people we do not see as a good fit. Please don't be offended as not everyone or every group fits all. We kindly ask that you refrain from attending our events as a guest to avoid any awkwardness.
2. If you have been accepted to the group, your request will be processed within a 5 days or less. If you don't hear from that means your request was unsuccessful. Please do not email us as you will not receive a reply.

4. Please note that abusive or problematic members (paid or not paid) will be banned from the group. Paid up members who have caused issues in the group and decide to leave the group voluntarily will not be allowed back in. By leaving you would have voided your membership and access to the group.
