New organizer(s) now required to take over at Kim's January event

OK folks, here's the deal.  Isabel and Mark have done their time.  Like Dave and Ginnie before them, it's time to focus more time on our other responsibilities.  The Brit Meet Up Group is a great gathering of people who share some common interests and heritage.  At this stage, it is just about self propelled - just need someone to act in an administrative capacity to insure everyone pays their $5 annual dues (due at the first meet-up of the year, or the first one you attend each year).  Also the new Organizer will have the responsibility of paying the annual website fee with their own credit card, and encourage various members to help organize an event at a bar or restaurant, or host a gathering in a private home.  We've found a mix of both is perhaps the best approach; home gatherings are more intimate - restaurants offer a lower hassle approach when folks are busy, and who doesn't like a curry buffet or fish and chips?  Time for someone to "belly up to the bar" . . .

 

It's been a great run, we've made some close friends, and we'll remain involved as active members.  Don't pass up this chance to enjoy the same benefits we've experienced.

 

All the best,

Isabel & Mark Hardesty

Thanks so much to Kim for stepping up and offering to take over as organizer. The idea at this stage is that you/we the members of the group offer to organize and host events, so the burden is shared among many. It can be at your home, or a bar/restaurant or anything else you would like. So please don't be shy, and get some events on the calendar. I know we already had a volunteer for Guy Fawkes next year, so please make that official! Kim's commitment is to collect the membership dues and front the money for the website, so please make his life easy by giving him $5 when you next see him!
