As much as the team would love to pick out all of the Chapter destinations ourselves (because trust us, it’s the most fun part of the job!), Make It Happen Chapters are designed to bring the Tribe into the decision making process.
Make It Happen Chapters
When the team is curious if the Tribe wants to explore a new place before officially committing to hosting a Chapter there, it’s launched as a Make It Happen Chapter. The community can then vote to make it happen by showing enough interest before the voting deadline arrives.
If you want to see that Chapter happen… YOU make it happen!
Cast your vote with your Chapter deposit, spread the word to your friends in the Tribe… and count down the days until we announce enough votes have been cast.
Cast your vote for the Chapter
Make It Happen Chapters run as a voting system – with your deposit as the ballot. When voting for a Make It Happen Chapter, your intention is to join the Chapter if it gets enough interest.
Here’s how works:
- To cast a vote for a Make It Happen Chapter, simply fill out the booking request form on the Chapter page just like you would for a typical Chapter. One of your deposits is used to save your spot.
- Each Make it Happen Chapter has a minimum number of required votes that signals if the Chapter will be confirmed – this will range anywhere from 10-14 votes (based on the particular location)
- If the Make it Happen Chapter receives enough votes by a specific deadline, you made the Chapter happen and we’re going!
- If the Make it Happen Chapter doesn’t receive enough votes, then we’ll release your deposit so you can put it towards a future Chapter booking!
The one request we have is that if you cast your vote for a Make It Happen Chapter – please do not book your flight until we have confirmed the Chapter is happening!
Rally the Troops & Get Those Votes In!
Once you’ve made your vote, it’s time to hype up the Tribe to join you! (Remember: we need 10-14 votes for a Make it Happen Chapter to actually happen).
Get the WhatsApp group chat going, DM your friends on Slack, and post what excites you about this Chapter–the adventures, experiences, and exciting points that are going to make it unforgettable will get more Tribers to cast their votes too.
