Lauren has been an amazing Event Organizer and has now been bumped up to Assistant Organizer!
Nate has been a wonderful Group member from the very start and is now an Event Organizer!
These 2 people were there at my very first group Meetup event on November 5th, 2011. I was so scared that it would totally flop! Well, since there were about 4-5 no-shows, so it practically did :p Except that the 2 people who DID show up showed me that quality is always better than quantity. I was blown away at how kind they were to me and to each other. I was also super impressed at how comfortable they were with the Japanese language. And they love Japanese! They truly do. I had finally found 2 other people who have the fire in their belly! Thank you, Lauren and Nate. You gave me the faith to continue the group and find even MORE great people! Pretty much, if you are on our group roster right now, I consider you to be great people :)
Now we are up to 28 members and I never would have imagined that the group would get so big! Well, we will technically go back down to 22 or 23 members after I delete some inactives on Friday. That part of the job sucks! But this group is a family and the fact that we are all active and know each other plays a big part in that, whether you participate on Facebook or in person.
Have a great day!
P.S. If anybody is interested in also becoming an Event Organizer, please let me know. There are unlimited spaces for Event Organizers in the group :) My only stipulation is that you have previously attended at least 1 Event with the group.
