You don't sound bossy, Chris - just organized and pro-active. A good starting point, I think... I'm in (if available on the day, of course).
 
Personally, I feel that if people can't each afford a couple of quid a year to keep this going, then they probably can't afford to come to any of the get-togethers either...;-)

Hi everybody
 
The purpose of this e-mail is to help us decide what to do next.
 
There seems to be general support for a meet up to discuss the Meet up.
 
As Julie has offered a venue could I suggest that she chooses a date within the next (?)three weeks and sets it up on the meet up site. (Ed can set Julie up as an assistant organiser if necessary.)
 
No date will be suitable for everyone so we might just as well choose one and go with whatever comes out of the meeting as decided by those able to turn up.
 
To give some coherence to the discussion it might help to agree some criteria up front against which to assess the various options eg:
 
  • cost
  • ease of use
  • flexibility to do what we actually need to do (?arrange meetings and invite everybody)
  • effectiveness of publicising the new arrangements so that new people can easily join
  • etc
 
Just for the record - I am not trying to be in charge - just trying to facilitate a decision, so I am more than happy to go along with alternative suggestions
 
Best wishes
 
Chris

I think having a Meet Up to discuss this is a good idea. There is a free function room that we could book, so it will be quiet to enable us to discuss everything at The Navigation Pub, Wilford Street, in town (next to Irish Club and canal) NG2 1AA tel. [masked], I can make enquiries if everyone agrees? Julie

Ed
 
(I never know how the Meet Up emails work so if this has not gone to everyone can you pse forward it)
 
Just returned from holiday and seen your e-mail.
 
No surprise at all that you are having to give priority to your family - and quite right too!
 
I tried creating a dummy group just to see what it costs and this seemed to show that it is $144/?100 for 6 months  - did you pay all this yourself - if so that was extremely generous.
 
It would be a shame if the group folded, especially as Jacqueline has come up with a very good idea that could form a basic thread running through a year's events.
 
The website says there are 99 members, so that would be about ?2 each for a year, assuming:
 

?         all continued as members

?         all members paid the ?2


In practice there would probably be a load of hassle in actually collecting the ?2s, even if someone forked out the membership fee up front.
 
Maybe one way forward is to call a Meet up somewhere where we can discuss how best to proceed, as to try and do it by e-mail would be very onerous.
 
What do you think?
 
Regards
 
Chris

Dear Nottingham Italian Conversation Group Members,

Since the birth of my first son, I've had very little time to plan any meetups for the group and I also have to be more careful with my budget. As a result, I've decided not to renew my meetup subscription when it expires in September.

This means, meetups can continue to be scheduled my myself and others until mid September, but for them to continue thereafter, someone or some people will need to take over running the group instead of me. If anyone is interested in this and would like to know more, please get in touch and I'd be happy to discuss all the details with you.

If anyone has any other ideas about the group, please also get in touch. Other platforms (facebook, ning etc) offer a similar (free, but less extensive) facility for organising meetups and these could be an option, if there was support for such a wholesale switch.

Best wishes,
Edward
