RE: [CFI-Austin] Making member list reflect interest in CFI

I wasn’t here for the discussion so perhaps I’m missing something. But what’s the purpose of purging the list of inactive people? It doesn’t cost us anything to keep everyone, does it? We can always put an Unsubscribe button at the bottom of general emails so people who truly aren’t interested can purge themselves.


Why do we need a more accurate picture of how many people have an interest in the group? Don’t we get that by seeing how many people turn out for each event?


It seems to me that a much friendlier gesture would be to send an email to people who’ve been inactive a certain length of time, tell them we’d like to see them again, and ask if they want to tell us why they’ve been inactive and if there’s anything we could do to bring them back. That tactic would promote better feelings towards the group, and might bring a few people back.

Subject: [CFI-Austin] Making member list reflect interest in CFI


There are quite a few people listed in the CFI Austin Meet-up group who have not visited the web page and have not been to any events in a long time. We think the member list should give a more accurate picture of how many people have an interest in the group.

If you would like to continue receiving email announcements of CFI Austin events, please visit the Meet-up web page. If you are not interested any longer, you can unsubscribe from the group. This also allows you to tell us why you are unsubscribing.

In about a week we will remove those who have not visited in more than a year. We do not wish to remove anyone who wants to continue their association; visiting the Meet-up page is a good way to show your interest.

Please Note: If you hit "REPLY", your message will be sent to everyone on this mailing list ([address removed])
