I have been a member of the Ten Club since 1996 and still have not had a meet and greet. Why?

Hi everyone, 
I hope you are all having a beautiful day or evening, depending on where you are located. 
I have been wondering for some time now, how many Ten Club members have had the opportunity to do a Meet and Greet with the band? My love of the group started in high school, and I became a member of the Ten Club in 1996 according to the records kept on here. I have attended concerts in NJ and NY but never had the opportunity to meet them. How does a member get an invite? Do we not get to meet them even with a yearly membership enrollment? I missed two years because life happens but I jumped back into the boat soon after that. 
Also, I would not be asking if I didn't have such a love for their music and activism throughout the years. Let's put this way, while I was having my C-section giving birth to my twin boys, Pearl Jam is what I asked for to play in the operating room. My twins were born to YellowLedBetter and that made the experience not as scary. Thank you, gentlemen. 
So, that's my story and question. Just curious to find an answer. Can't wait for them to roll back to Tri-State area again. Peace and much love!! 

Warm Regard, 
Jenn P. <3

    To my knowledge this band never did a meet-and-greet, ever.
    EV decided to do one just recently for the first time (for charity), as you can see on the news here.

    Your seat location gets you as close to a meet and greet as your gonna get.

    Write them a letter. I’m sure they will read it and appreciate the kind words.

    I have zero desire to meet and greet the band.

    My guess is that EV's stalker problem may have helped that decision.

    You have to use your Meet & Greet code that is sent when your membership renews. I'm using mine in April to go see Avengers Infinity War with Stone.

    Wait, so you didn't get your meet&greet invitation in mail after being in the club for 20 years? Missed out big time, but that was two years ago. Can't wait for mine in 2021.

    I am in the 10Club since 94, my brother in the Metallica Club since 98 or so. He has done the meet and greet and ive gone with him and while it is neat, its a big nothing sandwich. The musician is a uncomfortable and in my experience the fans are obnoxious and difficult...its a bit douchey.

    Pearl Jam has mystique!

    I thought Boom was Sasquatch?!?! At least that's what Matt Cameron told me when we went Sasquatch hunting during my meet and greet and we found Boom in the wilderness.

    Is that how Boom ended up in the band?

    Of course! Matt simply gave home some Jack Links jerky and they really hit it off. He even carried Matt back to camp on his shoulders. It was truly a sight to behold. Thanks 10C meet and greet!

    You didn't believe that nonsense about Ed meeting him in Hawaii did you?

    I used my meet and greet code to help them in the studio.  You can thank me for adding the claps to the "Can't Deny Me" bridge.  Mike wanted it to be whistling.

    Ugghh...you know my man Mikey, always about the whistling. But it's better than Jeff's incessant finger snapping anytime he gets a beat in his head.
