Subject: [cooking-696] New Organizer Needed
I wanted to let you know that I'll be moving cross-country next month and can't continue as organizer of the group. This is a really great and fun group full of talented and enthusiastic chefs. We have over 340 members now and I'd hate to see the group disband. We need a new organizer within the next 10 days or so, or the group will be dropped from Meetup.
Last summer we planned the year's events in advance. I'd be happy to meet with anyone interested in taking over the group to plan events for 2013-14. I'll be in CHS periodically and hope to attend some events myself!
Thanks to all the members for making this a really great Meetup group! We've had fantastic events - Thanksgiving, Cookie Swaps, picnics, cake pops, comfort food, cheesecakes, etc. Add to that the great people and conversation... We've had great fun and I'll miss you all. If anyone wants to take over the group, please let me know and I'll do whatever I can to help with the transition.

Do you love to cook, finding and sharing new recipes? The purpose of this meetup is to give foodies the opportunity to share a love of cooking with others while meeting new friends and having some fun!
Whether sharing appetizers and drinks while a live piano/violin duo performs, sampling ethnic delights, or celebrating the 150th Anniversary of the first Memorial Day, in the park where it all began, the goal is to bring together great food, and fun people.
Take a moment to read below so you will know how our group functions, and to understand the two things that we expect from our members. Our events are mostly held in the private homes of our volunteer hosts.
First, if you RSVP that you will attend, and can't, modify your RSVP to no, several days in advance of the function date. This consideration will allow our volunteer hosts to better plan, and for other members (who are wait-listed) to attend in your stead. Yes, things come up and life interferes. Just do your best.
Second, we ask that you upload a facial photo of yourself, when joining our group. Our host volunteers are trusting, and welcome us into their private homes. This personal image policy is for the security of all our members, including the volunteer hosts. (Unless you look like a tree, a tranquil beach, or a plate of food, don’t use these as your personal image.)
P.S. - Our members are amazing, kind and considerate people, to whom I apologize that stating the above is even necessary. Those who fail to show consideration on the above two fronts, may be deleted without notice, explanation or apology.
