“Hostess – a woman who receives or entertains guests.”
Our hostesses go above and beyond, and we are very thankful for all their hard work and dedication to make sure we always “Have more fun than anyone.” Over time, being a hostess has become increasingly frustrating with the number of repeated cancellations. It is difficult to plan events when there is such a fluid attendance list.
Unfortunately, because the rate of cancellations has significantly increased, Sisters on the Fly has reinstated a
Cancellation Policy effective January 8, 2024.
A “cancellation” is defined as a Sister who has signed up on the website to attend an event but then “cancels” her
booking on the website – which is fine, except when it becomes chronic. The cancellation period is from the time
of signing up to 48 hours prior to the event’s start date. The No-Show Policy applies after that
(https://www.sistersonthefly.com/no-show-policy/). The website will track a “cancellation” and a Sister will
receive one point for each time she is a “cancellation.”
Cancellations will be counted using the attendance report our hostesses submit. Each Sister will be allowed only
four cancellations per year. You will still be able to join the waitlist for an event, but the hostess will decide if she
wants to risk that you will attend or cancel.
A cancellation point will be removed upon the one-year anniversary (i.e. if you canceled attending an event
January 14, 2024, the point will be removed on January 14, 2025). SOTF understands there are valid reasons to
cancel attending an event. The intent of this policy is geared toward members who consistently sign up for events only to cancel. It is highly unlikely those members who do not consistently cancel will accumulate four cancellation points within a year.
The takeaway from this is please do not sign up for an event until you are sure that you can
attend, and to please cancel your event ticket on the website.
