Change in leadership for Hiking Meetup coming up

From: PeterM
Sent on: Tuesday, October 15, 2013 7:21 PM


Around mid-November I'll be stepping down as organizer of our Hiking Meetup.  Various health issues and my 3-year-old daughter have severely curtailed my ability to actively participate, and while our large crew of assistant organizers has done a very satisfactory job of volunteering plenty of events, I think it is time I allowed someone more involved with the group to take over.

Accordingly, I issued a request for the present assistant organizers to either elect a new organizer or volunteer.  Three people have stepped forward to take the lead, and the four of us will co-run this group until I step down in mid-November.

Welcome and thank you to Dave, Kathy, and Jim, our new organizers.

I'm not sure what changes will be in store, except I do know that they plan to ask members to donate toward maintaining this Meetup (it costs $12/month) somehow or other, instead of simply paying for the group as I have done.  The group is paid up until mid-November, hence my step-down date (I don't think Meetup gives refunds.)

I do hope to come back and actively participate with the group at some time a few years in the future, it really depends on exactly how well my allergy shots work at reducing my 3-seasons-worth of outdoor allergies.
