As many of you probably recall, I sent out a message a few months ago announcing that I would be stepping down as the Organizer of this group at the end of the year, which is now only about two weeks away. My main reason for doing so is that I have gotten so deeply involved in other commitments (fighting to get corporate money out of politics, for one) that I have badly neglected my duty to keep the Energizers' calendar full of interesting meetups -- and it has showed! :(
I am once again inviting anyone who wishes to see this group not only continue but return to its glory days of yore to reply to this message and offer your services as Organizer, Co-Organizer, or Assistant Organizer. The burden is both light and fun IF you can spare an hour or so per week to help ensure that there's a few good meetups per month on the calendar. You would have the opportunity to shape the future of the group and revitalize the calendar, not only by scheduling fun meetups yourself but also by inspiring fellow members to share the leadership role with you. With over a thousand members, we're the second largest group in Wisconsin (last I checked), and the potential for a wide variety of interesting, well-attended meetups is enormous.
The continuation and revitalization of this group is important enough to me that I'm willing to continue covering the fee for a while PROVIDED that an enthusiastic member steps up in the next two weeks to completely take over the top-level managing part.
No experience necessary! Will train! :)
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Best wishes for the holiday,
