Addition of Second Montly Book Discussions and Message Board Post

From: Tracey C
Sent on: Monday, August 30, 2010 8:12 AM
Hello all!
Just a quick note to let everyone know a few things...

1. Due to the popularity of the monthly book discussions and, in the hopes of reducing the waiting list on September and October especially, I've added a second book discussion for September, October and November. September has already filled up (wow!!) however there is one spot left for the Group One Discussion on Sunday, Sept 26th. (a note, I posted the second meetings over the weekend and gave first dibs to those who had already signed up for September. Moving forward, two meetups per month will automatically be added to the calendar.

2. We still have room on the newly added October discussion with a waiting list on the existing one. If anyone is interested in switching your RSVP to the Sunday group, in hopes of reducing the waiting list, please feel free to do so. Just remember, if you switch your RSVP, it doesn't automatically take you off the RSVP list for the other day so please change your RSVP to No for the day you were already signed up (if you run in to trouble, email me and I can change it.)

3. The RSVP Policy was sent out last week and, based on the demand, it is going to be especially important to stick by it. If you RSVP for a date, you are taking one of the spots, reducing the number of spots for others who want to sign up. Please don't sign up as Yes if you are pretty certain you won't be able to go. If you sign up as Maybe, please change that RSVP either to Yes or No ASAP once you determine whether you'll be there so that others on the waiting list have a chance to attend. Anyone who RSVPs Yes and is a No Show (i.e doesn't change their RSVP to No in advance of the meeting or contacts the host) three times will be removed from the group. I know I'm taking a bit of a hard line on this but it's intended to make sure the process is fair for all.

4. I've added a post to the Message Board regarding "Member's Favorite Books" One of the best things about the Meet and Greet last Thursday was hearing what people were reading, have read and what they're interested in reading. Since none of us had pen and paper handy, I thought this would be a great way to keep a running Member List of books outside of what we're reading! I know I heard a lot of great suggestions that I'm already checking out.

Thanks to everyone who attended last Thursday night. It was a great time and I look forward to seeing everyone at upcoming meetups!
