Sign Up On Meetup.com

back to top

To get notifications and updates &/or to RSVP for our chapter events and other events posted on our calendar you need to first become a member of meetup.com. 

The chapter opted to use this software for its very valuable and highly interactive calendar tool. It provides the chapter a way to organize trips, easily schedule or reschedule dates and times and alert members in minutes. No more missed mail, no more guessing regarding who is or isn’t coming and an instant way to get the same information to members at one time.  

Members can request additional information, arrange carpools pre-activity, post photos and rate the activity once it is over. This dynamic interaction remains as part of the calendar’s documentation so that members can access earlier events or trips.


We do like members to please use a recognizable, current photo of you. We may enjoy a photo of your new puppy or the dinner table feast you photographed last Thanksgiving or your high school graduation picture but we really prefer to see a somewhat current photo of ‘you’ so we recognize you at meetings or in the parking lot when meeting up for your first CAS-GJ outing.


Follow these instructions if: 
You are not a member of Meetup.com
You want to join the CAS-GJ Meetup group
You joined the CAS-GJ chapter and you want to join the CAS-GJ Meetup group

Slideshow: Meetup.com

Step-by-Step Instructions

Step 1
Go to www.meetup.com. You should be starting with a screen that will look something like the one below.

Step 2
Click "Sign up."


Step 3
You can sign up with:
    • Facebook 
    • Google+
    • Your Email
Facebook & Google+
Signing up with Facebook or Google+ is a snap. If you sign up with your email address it will take an extra step or two. Either way you are registering with your email address, however Meetup.com does not share or make it visible to the public so you will not get any spam or viruses in your inbox. 

Your Email
If you do have or want to sign up using your Facebook or Google+ account click "or sign up with email."


Step 4
Sign Up With Email: Fill in your information

Step 5
Click the "Continue" button. 
    • You will receive an email from Meetup.com. Click the link in your email to verify your account. 
Please upload a recognizable photo of you so everyone in the group can safely know who they are meeting. Photos of you in a ski helmet, goggles, view of the back of your head looking into a sunset, in a group of people, etc. make it hard to recognize who you are. Once registered you can easily change your photo.
