You Must Complete Your Membership Profile

When applying to join, please make sure to answer ALL questions completely and provide a link to your Linkedin profile. You must also use your real head shot on your company profile. No avatars, company logos, etc. Failure to complete your profile entirely may result in the denial of your application, or, the suspension of your membership until addressed.


RSVPs Are Required by 3pm on the Friday Before the Event

You’re membership entitles you to attend all Speakeasy events via your membership fee. However, you are not presumed to be attending every event just because you are a member. You must RSVP for all events by close of business on the Friday before the event to get into the event free under your membership. If you fail to RSVP and still wish to attend the event, you must pay a $20 late registration fee.

No Passing Your Business Card

We are not some lame Chamber of Commerce, Business Association mixer or speed-networking-event. You may never, ever initiate the passing of your business card at a Speakeasy event. If someone asks you for your card, that is ok.

No Name Tags… EVER

Call us old fashioned, but we remember the days where you walked up to a man or woman and introduced yourself properly with a handshake. So please, do not wear a name badge of any kind. Even if your badge is made of gold or has blinking LED lights, we don’t care. They are not allowed at our events under any circumstances. You may identify members at our events by the Red Carnation.

Final Decision:

The final decision for acceptance into Speakeasy belongs to the Head Aficionado and all decisions are final.
