You should also avoid venues with religious or political affiliations. Since one of our jobs as community organizers is to create a 100% welcoming space for everyone, we avoid holding events in venues where someone might feel uncomfortable or unwelcome.
If those items are all met, we ask for a 3-6 month invoice and commitment; and please ask the venue if they will offer a discount for paying for 6 months up front. Please submit the venue invoice to email@example.com. Include your meetup location, venue contact name, contact’s email address and phone number, and any special payment information. You should expect a response in about a week.
