San Diego Feminist Book Group Message Board › Book club events and RSVPs, finances, and Good Reads page
San Diego, CA
First, sorry for the multiple emails today! I wanted to send out details for the next two meetings, and also email you other recent announcements, including two recent concerns that have come up re: finances.
First, we've noticed that there have been a significant number of people RSVP'ing yes for the monthly discussion (which is great), but only about half of people who say they are attending are actually showing up. This is a problem because once we reach about 12 RSVPs, we can no longer fit at Angela's home, and have to pay $30 to rent a meeting space. We did so last night, but only had seven attendees. This needlessly, and quickly, drains our resources. So please, if you RSVP, make a concerted effort to attend! It also makes for a more lively and diverse discussion.
Second, one of us organizers is going to contact Meetup about the $72 biannual fee for our page, and see what exactly the parameters are for charging that fee. I think it's based on group size, but we'll find out for sure. We did briefly discuss last night the idea of purging the list/ asking if people still want to be in the group as a way to address this issue. The end goal is hopefully to have an even more affordable book club.
Third, we won't be meeting in December, as the 4th Tuesday is Xmas Eve.
Last, we are also working on keeping our Good Reads pages updated. You can find those here: http://www.meetup.com/San-Diego-Feminist-Book-Group/about/
Thanks much, and hope to see you soon! Christine
