Warning: What you're going to read may not be pleasant, but it's what I feel/think and what continuously frustrates me about some members of this group.
First of all, I want to thank all of those members who took the time to RENEW their membership before or in September 2013. In addition, those members who have help bring in great speakers from the local community. You are a special and responsible group and I can't thank you enough.
Secondly, just so you know: Linda, our membership organizer for the past several years who has spent countless number of hours volunteering (gratis) to make this group successful e-mailed everyone three days ago asking and explaining in detail why it's important for our members to RENEW and/or JOIN our group. The aftermath of her e-mail created NO renewals and NO new memberships.
I understand on an individual basis that if you don't want to renew that's OK, but no one out of 36 delinquent renewals?
Sidebar: As you may have guessed, I am perplexed why (36) members and even (6) December 14th party RSVP's who have attended our meetings in the last several months who seemingly enjoyed the various speakers, the facility etc. have not renewed their membership. Seriously, NOT one member.
Folks, I'm not going to beg for your money. But I am going to ask that you do what's right and that's be responsible and if you so choose...RENEW your membership when it's due.
We had the opportunity to have a great speaker, Dan Barker and we only needed a couple of hundred dollars to make it happen. Just 10 members or so to renew or to join. But unfortunately, due to the lack of member's response (funds) to help cover some of Dan's expenses, I regretfully say that he will NOT be able to attend.
Lastly, the good news is Dan Barker and I spoke a few hours ago and are working on a visit in March 2014.
P.S. I have often considered our group very unique with our speaker etc. format and our use of the University Club's facility. Therefore, if WE still want to continue to have such a format WE, everyone needs to be more attuned the needs of the group including our financial fiscal responsibilities.
All Always Thank You For Your Support!
