Our first Meeting: Please complete survey

From: Glen J.
Sent on: Sunday, May 24, 2009 11:32 AM
I want to personally thank each and every one of you for showing interest in the Seven-Habits-for-Highly-Effective-San-Franciscans Meet Up. This is a Meet Up I have been looking to join since I moved to the Bay Area over a year ago. I saw 500+ members interested, but couldn't find a Meet Up. What would Stephen Covey say to this? "Use your Resourcefulness and Initiative." So, we're starting one smile

This meet up is going to depend heavily upon the synergy (Habit 6) that we build into this group. And, we will need your help for that. Our first real goal will be to find a fixed-time that is the best for the most members in our group.

Before I ask you to complete a very small survey, I want to share what we've learned about our group thus far:

  • We have 30 members actually "signed up"
  • Meet Up reports 15% of those members "Last Visited" the site again, after signing up.
  • We have more members outside of San Francisco than we do inside:

1 Albany
1 Burlingame
1 Daly City
1 Lafayette
1 Mill Valley
1 Mountain View
1 Palo Alto
2 Redwood City
1 Roseville
1 San Bruno
14 San Francisco
1 San Jose
1 Santa Rosa
2 Walnut Creek
1 Woodacre

What we need to learn most is when would be the best time for us all to meet once per month. I've created a very small five question survey to try to answer this question. The Meeet Up website polls only asks one question. Here is a Survey Monkey anonymous survey instead:

Would you please get the results completed by June 7th?

This group has the potential to be incredibly effective at helping us to become more effective people. We will be shaped primarily by you. So, I couldn't predict what we'll become in six months. I'm only the organizer. However, I imagine that, together, we can build something so much better than any of us could do individually.

Before I wrap this first group email up, I must tell you what we will not be. This is not a group focusing on 'quick fixes.' We are not going to try to sell you something. And, we discourage our members from 'hard selling' to other members. Can business ventures be gained through this? Absolutely. But, our main focus is inside-out: Becoming more effective people first. Any business relationships we find will be the natural 'harvest' of our hard internal work at becoming more effective in our own lives.

Warmest Regards,

Glen Jarvis
