    Next Meeting?

    April is around the corner. Traditionally there has been no official meet due to Pet Expo. Does that mean the next meet is going to be in May?

    Reducing to 6 meetings a year was still too much? In actuality, 4-5 this year??

    It's tough when you have people who aren't involved in the forum or the hobby running the club.

    If you're interested, maybe start a new thread or PM the board members....

    There has never really been a "process" to recruit upstairs

    I hear ya.My point of view is the board members should be some of the most active people on the forum, not the opposite. We are all members and represent SCAPE, but the board represents SCAPE directly. Every single one of these new member introductions we have been getting the last few months should have a board member welcoming them to the group.

    Well the problem is life continues to move along, a lot of the older members just aren't as enthusiastic about the hobby as they once were, others have less free time as their careers developed and relationships matured. The biggest problem is someone owns scape and the forum, some board members signed tax documents and are listed on the paperwork etc. It's not as easy as someone stepping aside for someone else to take over. There is no election for club President or any other position. Things only change when the owner decides what direction he wants to move in... the board members give input/insight, but ultimately 1 person makes the decisions for the club.

    Any update/word on this?

    Looks like a minimeet is scheduled for the 21st.

    How hard would it have been to just make that meet "official"?????

    The 15th is quite soon and the 28th is pet expo. So there's going to be an official meet on the 22nd?

    Your best bet is to PM one or all of the current board members
