    Section 4: Renewal information

    Understanding your receipt
  • 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.
