I got side tracked with my own artistic projects and failed to be active in this meetup group. I did what many folks do, I rationalized that I because I was a "member of the group" that it was O.K to be a "passive member" via reading online updates. My thought process was incorrect. I will be contacting the two meetup groups that I have joined to inquire if my current time constraints qualifies me to continue to be a member or whether I should withdraw my membership. I could have made this inquiry to the meetup groups offline, but when errors are made publicly, I feel they should be apologized and corrected publicly.
Don't join a Meetup Group . . . If you can't stay connected
