-Courtesy when signing up for events. Do not sign up if you don't plan on going. See "No Show" policy. I , personally, have been stuck TWICE by restaurants charging me for seats I reserved for an event that members never showed up at.
-Acknowledgement that you understand that all events you attend at your own risk and not to hold the Organizer, Assistant Organizer, or Event Organizers liable for anything that happens on the way to, during, or when leaving the meetup event. Any accident, theft, injury, illness, relationship breakup, or other event as stated on the Meetup Agreement (shown at http://www.meetup.com (http://www.meetup.com/) ) that may occur is not the fault or responsibility of the Meetup Group, Organizer, and /or members. You assume all risks when attending a Meetup Event.
NO SHOW POLICY: To maintain the quality and enjoyment of events, members who RSVP to events but have ONE (1) unexcused failure to show up at an event will result in removal of membership. Specific factual circumstances will, of course, be considered. Email (to the Organizer) an explanation within 24 hours of missing the event. Please be considerate of other members and do not sign up for an event you do not plan to attend. This is especially important if there is a Waitlist and/or the event involves a third-party (e.g. restaurant, riding stable, sports arena, concert venue, boat ride, etc)
RSVP GUIDELINES: Most of our events will allow you to bring a guest or two. If it is a limited event and the event says no guests, please do not write "+1" in the message section of your RSVP response. If you have signed up for an event and later realize you cannot attend, you must change your RSVP immediately. The No Show Policy applies to ALL events. If you sign up for an event and change your RSVP to a "no" this is not a "No Show". A "No Show" is when you cancel your RSVP within 24 hours of an event's starting time or don't show up to the event at all.
SEXUAL HARASSMENT: Inappropriate conduct, including, without limitation, stalking, inappropriate touching and other such unwanted physical contact, inappropriate emails, texts, telephoning etc. will NOT be tolerated or condoned and will result in the immediate removal from the NYNF Meetup Group. Additionally, "no" means "no" and a member who repeatedly pressures another member for dates, sex, etc. after having been told that his/her attention is unwelcome, will be removed from the membership immediately. All decisions by the Organizer of the NYNF Meetup Group are final and unappealable.
Background / Criminal Checks: Background / criminal checks are NOT performed on ANY group member. We have no information regarding whether a member has a valid driving license or is on the suspended / revoked license list. Please use your own good judgment and discretion when interacting with members within group events, including without limitation, when making arrangements to carpool with members of the NYNF Meetup Group whom you do not know well.
Meetup Group Cost: To "own" a Meetup Group costs $180 a year. This money has been paid for by your group Organizer. Any prizes, flowers, gifts, picnic goods, raffles, etc that are awarded, won, given away at Meetups are paid for BY your group Organizer (or a collection setup for that particular event). I would request that every now and then, you contribute $5 per year dues donation to help offset the costs to run this group. You can donate through the link on the Meetup Group Home page or pay me at a meetup.
