Our C/C++ Users' Group is faced with a collection of urgent issues that may well determine our survival:
- We need to approve our draft by-laws and become an official entity. We don't need to talk about doing so at some vague time in the future; we've already been doing that for too long. It's time to act.
- Then we need to nominate and elect permanent officers.
- We need to collect dues, a meeting charge, or another way of becoming financially stable, and we need to renew our web site.
- We just conducted our worst and most embarrassing meeting in over two years. It's fortunate that half the people who registered were discouraged by the weather, but some of the people who did come may not return.
- We've lined up an extremely risky speaker for April, just a few weeks from now, and we don't even know his topic, which may have little to do with C++ programming. If members who were turned off by the February fiasco also feel they've wasted an April evening, they'll be gone for good.
If you're interested in helping our group to attack these challenges or willing to serve in a leadership role during the coming year, come to tomorrow evening's ACM chapter meeting
at 5:45, and join the discussion at the "C/C++ Users' Group" table. Bring supper, if you wish, from one of the many carry-out places in the area.
