    Section 4: Renewal information

    Understanding your receipt
  • If your Meetup group is bursting at the seams, or you want to grow your leadership team, it may be time to upgrade your organizer subscription plan from Basic to Unlimited.

    When you go from Basic to Unlimited, your groups’ member and leadership team limits will be adjusted immediately, but we won’t charge you the Unlimited rate until your next renewal.

    If you’re looking to switch from Unlimited to Basic, keep in mind that your groups will need to have 50 or fewer members and 3 or fewer members on your leadership team; just like when you upgrade, you won’t be charged the Basic rate until your next subscription renewal date.

  • All organizer subscriptions automatically renew, but your subscription may expire for two reasons:

    1. You cancel the auto-renewal
    2. The credit card on file for your subscription is declined

    If either of the above happens, your subscription will stay active until its scheduled expiration date. After that, your organizer account will enter a two-week grace period, during which you can always update your payment details to keep your subscription from expiring.

    When the grace period ends, you'll be removed as the organizer of your Meetup groups. At that time, we’ll notify co-organizers and assistant organizers of your departure, giving them first dibs to take over your organizer role. After that, we’ll extend the invitation to all group members. Your Meetup group will stay open under a new organizer, but if no one volunteers to lead, it will automatically close after 15 days.

    What if my organizer subscription expires?
  • Ready to take a break from organizing Meetups? You can cancel your organizer subscription with just a few clicks. It’s easy to re-subscribe whenever you want to jump back in.

    How do I manage my organizer subscription?
  • The process of transferring ownership of a Meetup group starts with the current organizer and ends with the organizer taking over. The future organizer must already be a member of the Meetup group they will organize.

    Organizers can only transfer group ownership via their desktop web browser.

    Current organizer:

    1. From the Meetup group homepage, select Manage group.
    2. Choose Step down as Organizer.
    3. In the search box, enter the new organizer’s account name who is taking your place.
    4. Check the box beside their name and select Next.
    5. Add a custom message for the potential incoming organizer(s) (this is particularly helpful if you have not yet spoken with the organizer you are nominating about transferring group ownership to them).
    6. Select Ask selected members.

    Your subscription will not be transferred to the group's new organizer. They must start their own subscription when they step up. After you’ve transferred your group to a new organizer, you can start a new group or, if you’re not organizing any other groups, cancel your subscription to avoid renewal payments.

    Nominated organizer:

    1. Navigate to the Meetup group's homepage. You should be in the "About" Section from the top navigation.
    2. Scroll down to the "Members" section.
    3. Select Accept to confirm the nomination.

    Once the new organizer accepts the nomination, they will be the primary organizer of the Meetup group. They’ll be responsible for all group membership and support. At this time, the previous organizer rescinds their leadership role and becomes a member of the group, and can leave if they want.

    How do I transfer my Meetup group to a different organizer?
