We are different.
When we have a networking group session, we do our best to make people feel at ease. It is important that we give time for all to have the opportunity to get to know each other on a personal basis. It is not a quick firing round of business cards or date night. We can testify to the fact that to truly benefit, regular attendance is key. After some time, we see members build relationships and trust amongst each other follows. Then whatever happens, simply happens naturally.
We are honest to say what we feel we do not like from our members including those considering Associate free to register trial membership
Spamming e-mails for website development or scraping names to market another networking group, business, product or service as relationship building will not be tolerated.
When this happens, the reaction is simple. You are asked to stop. Failure to do so then results in the removal of membership from all groups and this website.
Our Associate membership offers a limited opportunity for you to get to know us, to attend an event and to see the value of the work our volunteers who give their time for free. We are not a “turn up, attend, get what you need then disappear Meetup.” It is why our members have a high commit – attend ratio, very few ghost and fail to message and not turn up.
It is also why they take responsibility to flag posts, report them to moderators and help them as best as they can.
