Better membership and fee management options
There are several other uservoice ideas/suggestions with similar requests but I'd like to outline things in detail with a few twists
1) Ability to set up a auto-reminder email to members (ability to set frequency at 1,3,6, 12 months depending on the membership due structure)
Auto-renew feature would be nice but I realize that if people change their credit card / paypal account is not-funded etc, then there would be declined transactions or chargebacks from members which means more work for meetup.com HQ. Auto-reminder email won't require additional finance management from meetup.com HQ.
2) Ability to control who can RSVP to certain events
Most meetupers expect to join and be part of a group for free making any money collection for organizers quite difficult. While I had no problems with paying meetup dues myself, as the group got larger the only way to minimize flakes was to get people to commit financially.
Would it be possible to add features such as:
a- ability for those who have paid dues to have "priority" RSVP capability to certain events (i.e. keep the event closed to the whole group for 24-48 hours, but if they have paid dues they can RSVP immediately)
b- ability for only those that have paid dues to RSVP to certain events

I'm the Treasurer. How can I correct or delete an erroneous Dues entry? It corrupts the financial report.
