I believe there should be a way for members to get to know each other better.
Not just hang out with the people you know. Why bother joining a group, if you are going to sit with your friends and buddies?

The table arrangement is simply not helping. (A straight long table - crowded together?)

Why not have individual tables with an extra chair that's available in case someone wants to say hi!

Find a method to rotate members from table to table throughout the evening, so that members can introduce themselves and make new friends.

It's a two-hours-plus meeting, and being glued to one table is not a good way to meet new people.

I agree 100%
I thought about that many times.

1 idea could be to have the seats numbered, pick the number out of a hat, and sit in that seat surrounded by other random people.

Then every time u go for seconds, or desert sit in a different available seat,
NOT next to someone u already knw.

Another idea would be to ask peeps to sit with people they don't already know
(yeah, I know; good luck with this one).

I would b willing to try any other ideas for meeting new people.

Brilliant! The one time I have gone, I felt like I couldn't just but into other people's conversations while they were sitting down. Everyone sat with someone they knew and I was brand new. I still sat in the middle of known people though, it was the only way to try and meet people :)

As Vegans and Vegetarians, we are suppose to be a friendly bunch, so let's be that smile

It's very simple.

It's like a dance.

Every 15 minutes the host calls out " ROTATE" and the people who are sitting on one side of the table (as opposed to the other side of the table) get up and move one chair over - that's it.

Done deal simple.


(This can be accomplished by having one LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG table (tables next to each other, side to side .......... so, tables do not need to be broken up - it can be lined up in one big snake-like mess

and as long as everyone gets up and moves one chair over when the host calls out "rotate" or ring a bell or whatever does the trick

let's do it. ....
