Let's Organize

LENYN has grown quickly since its creation in February 2013, now approaching 1700 members, making it one of the biggest Meetups of its type. Of course, rapid growth means growing pains, as anyone who's been waitlisted for one of our events knows. Therefore, I'd like us to get together so we can discuss where the group is and how we can improve it going forward.

One thing I want to address is the waitlists. The number of people waiting to get in to our events has often exceeded the number who actually attend. (And the problem is likely to get worse as the group continues to grow.) There are a few different things we can do to deal with the issue, and I'd like to get members' input before moving forward. Other agenda items include the group's attendance / cancellation policy, having different kinds of events, etc.

Please, please, please RSVP if you're likely to come and remove your name otherwise so I can get an accurate head count. Thanks!

      We will not be walking around any neighborhoods at this event. We will be discussing the group.

    Just curious . . . when we were going to Fraunces Tavern, I assumed we would be eating lunch there.
    Now, are we going to be having lunch or just a discussion?

    • Marc

      No lunch, but I'm sure it would be fine if you brought some food.

    Marc, a whole bunch of us were just talking about how hard it is this year to get into the events here. I'd love to attend if I can. Right now, I've got plans for this day, but if that doesn't pan out, I'll be there.

      Hey Marc, I'm unlikely to make this because of the previous plans mentioned. Will sign back up if anything changes in the next days.

      June 18, 2014

  • Mary F.

    So sorry but my plans have changed. Will see you at the next neighborhood!

    You may have already thought of this but what about having two or more groups, slightly staggered, doing the same tour at the same time but each with its own leader? I would be willing to be a secondary leader. This way people would not be too far from the leader and could hear well.

    • Marc

      Thanks Donna! Please bring that up on Saturday.

    Nice but expensive, small place to met. Cheaper larger options near by. I have worked downtown for many years. Just saying.
