First, Janice, thanks for the heads-up today about the Curry Club coupon opportunity!
Next: since a bunch of new folks have joined the group recently, I'm realizing this is a good time to send out a warm welcome to y'all! <waves at all you new members> :)
Also, I finally got around to updating the group info about the mailing list and the message board, so everyone's on the same page. The following excerpt is what I just added to the "About Vegan Long Island" page (http://www.meetup.com/Vegan-Long-Island/about/):
MAILING LIST: is for announcements only, for our group. Yes, even though it appears as a menu option under "Discussions." That's just the standard Meetup page design; I can't do anything about it. (The Message Board is the place for conversations--see next item!) If you've got a message that's time-dependent and relevant to this group's mission, please do send it; just be aware that all messages get held for my approval (spam-prevention).
MESSAGE BOARD: is your forum! Pose questions, offer support, comment on articles or issues of the day, meet new friends. You can adjust your settings (under Account, under Email Settings) to receive notification of Message Board updates (you'll get a nightly email), or not.
I hope that's helpful, everyone.
And here's an update on the Jennifer's-seeking-someone-to-be-VLI's-new-Lead-Organizer situation... well, it turns out that my telecommuting from Long Island is working out pretty well, so I'm less sure now that I'll be relocating by this coming fall after all. But I've still got way too much on my plate, and I still would love for someone else to take over as Lead Organizer in the near future. So feel free to send me a note if you'd be willing to take on the fiscal responsibility (it's $72 every 6 months) and the title/role of Lead Organizer. Thanks!
p.s. I'm also posting this at the message board, so if you'd like to comment, feel free to do so over there. :)
