Yesterday, I decided to pony up the fees to keep this group running when professor stepped down, but it's not my group, it is all of yours. In fact, I have never even attended a meetup, although I'd like to sometime.
So if this is your group, what would you like to do? Some folks have reached out to me already, some with advice, some with criticism of past leaders, some not sure if this group is for them. I would like to get feedback from more of you, so that this group does what you want it to do.
For instance, is meeting in a bar on a Sunday evening working for everyone? (It's not working for me, and I'm not a tee-totaller.)
Are the meetups informative, or social? Do we want both?
Do members need to be provided with specific credible information on the Denver Area's unique hazards and vulnerabilities?
What about recommended actions to be taken, individually and as a group?
A few more things to ponder: there are professionals working on the issue of community preparedness in the Metro Area. Federal Homeland Security capabilities include the work this group is trying to do. Do you want professionals at the table? Are public sector resources something the group would like to take advantage of?
Do you want to hear more from experts in the field? I can get them there, but not to a bar on Sunday, so that is more social time than work time, in my view.
I can be reached at [address removed] but I encourage you to reply to the group and get some conversation going. With over 300 members, there have to be some opinions.
