Hyde Park Book Club - sharing expenses

Since our book group was formed in 2010, our organizer Katy Chafin has assumed the cost of the monthly fee charged by Meet-Up ($15 per month). 
At our last meeting, we discussed how to find a more equitable way to share the expenses.  We arrived at 2 solutions:
1)  Going forward, attendees will be asked to contribute $2 at each gathering to cover the cost of maintaining the website.
2)  To cover the expense Katy already has incurred ($180 total), members agreed to share the cost.  We agreed to split the costs based on frequency of past attendance.  It is a bit of a back of the envelope approach, but seemed equitable.  We (Katy, Marcie, Candace, Anna, Dana, Josh, and I) assigned the cost-sharing as noted below.  If you didn't attend last month's gathering, please bring your share to tonight's event.
    Katy $20
    Marcie $20
    Candace $20
    Sara $20
    Alison $20
    Ron $20
    Iglika $10
    Anna $10
    Dana $10
    Erica $10
    Shannon $10
This approach reimburses Katy for the bulk of her expenditures, and is a one-time expense.  Going forward, we'll each contribute $2 per gathering as a I noted above.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me or Katy.
Thanks!  Looking forward to seeing you tonight.
