At 15 Sep 2005's Nashua get-together, several activists said that they'd like to get together for a follow-up meeting. Let's try to firm up an agenda. Respond here and to the gnhlug-org list with RSVPs, ideas, suggestions, agenda items, news, etc.


If you plan on coming, please add your name to this list - along with whatever food you can bring.

Note: Add your name to the above list if you want directions e-mailed to you. (They will be sent to the email address in your topic page (the page that's displayed when you click on one of the above links.)


Running Meetings (Wood Badge)

maddog couldn't say enough about the Scout's "Wood Badge" program to train leaders. (Google it for some interesting tales.) Some seek glory, others have it thrust upon them. Chapter leaders just happened. Let's share experiences, agendas, meeting ideas, how to run a meeting, how to shut up that guy in the back who just won't quit, and so forth. Heather has given us a good start with the idea of setting up a structure, schedule and plan for announcements, where do we take that? How to announce, where to announce?

Given the recent intense discussion, and following announcement, it is safe to assume this will be a big topic. We should try and break it down into agenda items ahead of time.

  • Bylaws
  • General membership involvement
  • Ratification
  • When and how to hold membership meetings for elections
  • When and how, if ever, GNHLUG should seek funds and from what sources
