        I too would like to have the option to close my group to new members. Currently I have a note on the home page that specifically says "This group private and not open to new members." People still sign up because they can and they don't read the description.

        I open my group periodically to bring make members friends new members. But I do not want to have a giant group. I want to keep my group small and manageable maintaining a very high quality. Ideally, I would like to have the option to have the group opened or closed to new members with the ability to add new members by inviting them to the group. This should be easily accomplished using the member's email address. An email could be sent using the Meetup system inviting the member to join. The only way organizers can get the email address is by getting from the member.
