Do I need to register for GroupLink?
Please do! Registration is highly encouraged because we use this information to help you meet people with similar group preferences. If you make a last-minute decision to attend, please know you’re welcome. We will be glad to assist you.
If I have registered for GroupLink, does that mean I have joined a group?
No. We use your registration information to give you an initial connection point to people you could potentially form a group with at GroupLink. Only you can decide if a group works for you logistically. GroupLink provides an opportunity to meet others and decide which group you would like to join.
What happens at GroupLink?
Everyone starts the evening with an initial connection point—a group of other people looking for the same type of group. When you arrive, your first step is to meet the people at your initial connection point and decide if this group is a good start. If the logistics of this connection group work for you, you've joined a group. If it’s not a good fit, volunteers will help you find a different group.
What if I can't attend GroupLink?
If any of the groups formed at GroupLink aren’t full, we’d love to help you get connected. Fill out this form to let us know that you can't make it, and we will email you when online groups open.
We’ll post a list of groups with openings a couple days after the event. If one of the groups matches your stage of life and area of town and is meeting on a night of the week that works for you, you can sign up online.
Open group listings are active for two to three weeks after GroupLink. Openings are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
What is the difference between GroupLink and a Community Group?
GroupLink is a two-hour event you attend to join a Community Group. A Community Group meets weekly.
Is childcare provided at GroupLink?
Childcare is not provided, but we do reimburse (at a predetermined rate) for babysitters needed in order to attend a GroupLink event. Visit our childcare reimbursement page for more information. You may also request a copy of the form for submission.
