I know you're probably tired of hearing from me, but I had to make a decision about what to do with this group.
I've sent emails out to all of you asking if you want this group to continue with me as organizer. I got a few emails; not overwhelming, but those that responded all said yes. Some people indicated that they would kick in a few dollars so I set up a way for sponsors to pay for sponsorships and members to make donations.
Alas, nothing has transpired. I got emails telling me I should contact this person or that to ask for donations, but I am not comfortable with contacting people that I don't know. (That's why I'm NOT in sales.) Plus, it makes no sense to ask for sponsorship money when members aren't going to attend the events.
I'm not sure if the events I am scheduling are to members' liking but I've indicated multiple times that anyone is free to schedule a meetup. And some have taken the initiative to do so. If no one is going to attend any of the meetups then I think it's time to shut this group down.
I've made a lot of good friends that I hope stay in touch with me. If not, oh well. If I want to go do karaoke, I'll reach out to my friends.
Thanks for your support.
