Our membership just reached 250, in just over six months, proving yet again that introverts are social people, too. That's quite a milestone, and it seems like the ideal time to reach out to you all.
If you don't know, I'm the founder of Social Introverts. Most of you haven't met me, and some of you have asked why. The answer to that is simple: I'm very introverted indeed, and I can also be quite shy. I created this group because it needed to exist. It's for you much more than me. I've had to diminish my role as organizer over time, but I will still schedule some meetups, and even show up for most of them. But I'm very grateful to have Jamie and Jason as enthusiastic and reliable organizers to maintain the group's momentum.
On that topic, I wanted to emphasize to all of you that you don't have to rely entirely on the designated organizers, or restrict yourselves to the gatherings that we choose to arrange. Every one of you is invited to schedule meetups. If there is an event you want to attend, a restaurant you want to try, a venue you want to explore, or just a conversation you want to have, please feel very free to schedule a meetup for it. Even if you don't know where or when to hold the gathering, schedule it; it can be worked out. There are 250 of us, a quarter of a thousand, all connected by at least one common thread, and whatever it is you're interested in doing, you are very likely to find others who will be eager to join you.
If you have any questions or feedback about the group, please feel free to contact me, and I'll be happy to respond.
Thank you so much for joining us.
