Hi Everyone
 
I'm interested in what they are about and how they would explain the benefits - I agree with Wendy.

Hi, Sumi.
 
Perhaps we can contribute a more meaningful group-think response if we had some background on the need/goals/benefits of sponsorship.  I can probably guess (financial, right?), but don't want to assume.

Hi Everyone,
 
I've heard a few vehement "no's" from some members (as I thought might happen), so I just rejected the offer as I had originally been intending to do - thanks for the feedback!  I might ask a local progressive attorney if she would be interested in sponsoring. She's been an activist and progressive for many years. I don't know if she would, but I would endorse her /recommend her to anyone who needed ethical legal services, including estate planning. Any thoughts on that?

Hi Everyone,
We could get sponsorship - $50/month to use as we wish for the MeetUp. The catch is that it's from GE - some program that is apparently is trying to cast GE as green, it's called "GE: ecomagination." ! Before we dismiss this outright, though, maybe there is a way we can make it work for us. The only thing that's really required is that they get to post something on the page. We could always post something else that is a disclaimer. Any thoughts? I cut and pasted the info below. I ignored this offer at first, so it may be about to expire, so let me know soon if you have thoughts on it.
