A Change Of Heart

From: Chris U.
Sent on: Saturday, April 5, 2008 2:56 PM
OK...some of y'all got phone calls from me last night where I announced that I was stepping down from the group. I was all set to make the official announcement at our Meet & Greet event today. I made the announcement and the folks who showed up began to FREAK OUT! After hearing their stories about how great the group has been and how leery they'd be to continue with the group if another person takes it over, I decided to stay.

It is hard leading a group this large. There are days in which I feel that the support for my efforts is lacking and that the members are unappreciative of all that I'm trying to do for us. That - combined with the personal battles that I'm facing - just made my load a bit too hard to carry. We've lost some organizers who were very opposed to my style of leadership. I felt that their opinion was reflective of the group as a whole. Today's Meet and Greet totally killed that notion. I am relieved to know that I my work and efforts to keep the group rolling are appreciated by our members - especially you guys as Organizers. Thank you very much. There is no way I could do this without you.
