I'm extremely pleased to announce that Jean Anderson
will be taking over as the chief organizer of Energize Activities! After meeting with Jean today, I'm convinced that she has exactly the enthusiasm, planning skills, and other personal qualities needed to "re-energize" this group, both by bringing her own fresh ideas for activities and by involving many of you as well in contributing and planning a wide range of interesting and fun meetups.
It goes without saying that your own participation in future meetups will be an important ingredient in making those meetups fun and appealing to other members. I hope you'll make Jean's job easy by making a point of attending whenever you can, especially if you never have before! :-)
For technical reasons relating to my current subscription with Meetup.com, I'll continue to appear as "the" Organizer for the next few months, but Jean is the one who, from today onward, has top-level responsibility for the management and future direction of this group. I'm sure she will welcome hearing from those of you who wish to offer suggestions or to help schedule an activity.
I look forward to continuing to participate in Energize Activities as time permits, and I still hope to meet many more of you at future meetups!
