Attention Recess Participants and Volunteers

As you may know, the June Recess event was canceled so that we (the NerdNYC officers) could review NerdNYC event policies. As NerdNYC grows, our methods for organizing events need to change and grow as well. Periodically adjusting event policy helps ensure that NerdNYC events run more smoothly.

The NerdNYC officers researched all of our options and after much deliberation, we reached consensus about necessary changes. While most of these don’t impact NerdNYC members directly, the following changes affect all Recess attendees.

These will be in effect for the upcoming Recess and going forward until further notice.

THE FOLLOWING NEW RULES WILL BE IN EFFECT FOR THE NEXT RECESS ON SEPTEMBER 15TH, 2012

• Recess is now an adult-only event. Recess participants, volunteers and attendees must be at least 18 years of age or older, with no exceptions. Children will not be allowed into our event space for any reason.

•To help enforce the above rule, Recess participants and volunteers must bring valid photo ID with them to Recess, so that their age can be verified. People without valid ID will not be admitted to Recess. IDs will be checked at the door during registration.

Why these changes? We’re a small non-profit and we take the safety of our event participants very seriously.

We realize that these rules changes may disappoint some, and for that we are sorry. These rules are necessary adjustments needed to protect and build NerdNYC, and will help us bring more high quality events to you in the future.
