Good afternoon friends and coffee-lovers. We want to thank all of of those who have been supportive participants in the C.O.F.F.I.E. Group of the past 3 years. This has been an exciting experience so far, and we look forward to the awesome experiences to come with our group. As we continue to grow and develop, we will be taking periodic inventories of the group to ensure we are being as effective as possible.
After we added our 1000th member some months ago, we conveyed to our members that we would be removing members who haven't visited C.O.F.F.I.E. for a considerable amount of time. While we love having a large membership, we realized that many of those counted in the membership total are not active members of the group (some haven't visited for multiple years). While this does not have a negative impact on the group, directly, it does affect perception of prospective members.
Please don't be alarmed if you see a significant drop in membership! We are not being abandoned by a large percentage of our members. We are actively removing them.
In order to provide a more realistic view of the groups reach and influence, we will be revisiting the member list and removing those who have not visited the group in a long while. If you have not visited the group page in the past 12 months, you should let us know within 48 hours if you desire to remain a part of C.O.F.F.I.E. going forward. While you may not be removed from membership immediately, we cannot guarantee that you will remain on the membership roster. You can reply to this email, or leave a message on my wall.
We look forward to hearing from you, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Roderick Smith - Group Organizer
