As you have heard, after more than seven years of organizing the Beagle Pack, Vany has stepped down from the leadership of the group. In his place, Vera and I will be acting as co-organizers and we are being joined by Juliet as a new assistant organizer.
Since the early days of meetup.com there have been a large number of improvements in the group management capabilities. One of the changes is the ability to support a custom group name for the mailing list and web site url. Starting today the mailing list address for our group, The Beagle Pack!, has been changed. The new mailing list address is now [address removed]. If you are using an address book or filter with your e-mail client, you may want to update your settings to reflect the most current address. The new url for the group is http://www.meetup.com/beagle-pack/
In addition, we now have the ability to grant an "event coordinator" role to members that want to organize a single meetup in their neighborhood. If you are interested in supporting the group in that role, please drop the new leadership a note.
