    DEC NEWS & UPDATES

    There have been a lot of things going on since our last update. We hope we covered it all but if not, let us know what we missed! 

    PAST EVENT UPDATES

    Our Woodinville Wine Tour Experience as it was originally planned was cancelled, mainly because we didn't meet the minimum necessary for the luxury transportation, wine guide, etc. We appreciate the feedback provided so far, and we are always open to more. We are constantly tweaking our process and working towards well-attended, and well-received events. The few of us that signed up decided to go wine tasting on our own and had a blast! We plan on trying again next year if there is interest. 

    Nov Social Hour

    We had a fun time for our impromptu November Happy Hour so thank you again to Kim Pelham for the suggestion. It was a great venue to check out and we will perhaps schedule a group dinner there at some point.  

    VIP MEMBER UPDATES

    We now have our 10 VIP Charter Members. Yay! When we started this we retailed the membership at $97 per month, and love that we were able to offer it at such a crazy low rate for members that will offer feedback, and be a part of our growth. However, we aren't going to full price just yet. The next 10 members that join will get in at a membership price of $24.99/month.

    It takes a lot of work to plan these fun events for you, and it is important that we cover our costs to continue this vision. We want to bring you more events and that also means that we need more members! There is a plan that is percolating to benefit you and help us increase our membership at the same time so stay tuned. In the interim, who do you know that is a good fit for the Secret Travel Society? Have them apply today!

     

    RSVP CHANGES

    The other change that we implemented just a few days ago is a change to how you RSVP to our Social Hour Events (formally known as Happy Hour Events). It is important to minimize no shows as much as possible, and we need your help. In most cases we make arrangements with the venue to make sure we have enough space, and when it makes sense, negotiate extra perks for our group. So, it is important that we follow through.

    To help us keep our commitment to ourselves to have fun and live life to it's fullest, our minor change is as follows:

    VIP Members and Guest/Meetup Members pay the $6 fee to RSVP.

    The usual cancellation policy applies and the fee is non-refundable to no-shows. If you are a VIP Member, we will apply $5 to your bill!

    If you have any questions, please let us know!

    NEW EVENTS

    We are excited to bring more exciting and fun events so here are just a few on our calendar and there are more to come! Many of the events we have added are VIP Member only events so you won't see them unless you are signed in and have purchased a VIP Membership. 

    If you want to get tickets for Mama Mia, please contact us directly to see if there are any seats near our group. The tickets sold out for the Feb 4th date that we were initially looking at so we had to quickly move on another date. It is now on Thursdaynight on Feb 22nd.

    Also, we are pre-selling tickets for Teatro ZinZanni on Friday March 9th so if you are interested in attending, please purchase your deposit and we will invoice the balance of the event cost 30 days prior to the event start. We need all deposits in by Wed Dec 13th.

    NON-HOSTED EVENTS

    There are a few events that we are experimenting with on our calendar and those are called Non-Hosted Events. That simply means there is no guarantee Andrea or Monica will attend and it may be something we haven't personally planned, but it looks and sounds so super awesome we can't help but share it with our VIP Members. They can be fantastic travel specials, a fun local Wine Walk, or the like. Let us know what events you want to see!

    WE LISTEN 

    We listen to our members! Kim Pelham requested another Happy Hour event in November so we have added one to the calendar. We are experimenting with keeping the location secret until you RSVP so let us know what you think. We also have a bonus perk for this event as well as the first 5 people who register will get their first drink on us!

    LAST CALL FOR CHARTER MEMBERS

    We met with our business coach last week and decided that $14.99/month is way too low for what we are offering and the time we are putting in to plan these fun events for you. We are making the current VIP Members VIP Charter Members and only these members will get this low, low price. We will keep it at the low monthly fee for at least the first 6 months but after that time we might decide to bump up the price. If you know anyone who wants to join us at the $14.99/month price ($22.49 for the family charter members) then make sure to invite them to join us. 

    http://www.secrettravelsociety.com/about-us

    After we get our first 10 VIP Charter members, we will increase the price to $24.99/month and $37.49/month for VIP Charter Family members. Please share the news!

    We are now accepting applications for our membership! You can subscribe to our Secret Travel Society (STS) and it is a monthly introductory membership fee of $14.99. It will not stay at this low price for very long!

    Your monthly membership fee will recur every month on the same day that you join. Our membership is in beta version so by having it at this low price, we are counting on your feedback and input. It will also give us time to build our event calendar. 

    Once you join as a paying member, you will have access to our fun event calendar and access to exclusive member only events. There will be exclusive member only discounts and/or VIP gifts at each event. We also have a free Meetup group and it will continue to exist to help promote our mostly free and low cost events. It also serves as a way for people to get an introduction into our Secret Travel Society™.

    To apply for membership, please see our JOIN US page.

    We are business owners and we kept seeing other business owners who weren't taking the time to travel and enjoy their life. We know how hard it is for successful business owners, entrepreneurs and professionals to plan for fun events in their life so we decided to help out and created the Secret Travel Society™. 

    We are looking for people who enjoy meeting others, love to travel, value the finer things in life and want to have FUN. Our society members want to experience life to its fullest and share those moments with others. 

    We host a variety of fun, local events so you can get to know other fabulous people like yourself. Our local events will range in price from free to $200 per person. We will also put together some fun weekend trips and eventually, we will also offer opportunities to join us on bigger trips as well. 

    Remember, this group focuses on luxuryPricing for our trips and events may be a little higher than others that you see elsewhere, but the VALUE of the trip or event will far exceed the price you paid for it. Couples and singles are welcome. It's all about being positive and enjoying the best in life!
