When you belong to a social group as my mother does, it is very important to be careful to join in the group activities available. I do know there are some who attend the meetings, or several a year, and always join the monthly lunch club outings to various pubs in the county. that’s great but also that’s where it ends. Very few of them want to put there hand p and be one of the organisers or one of the required number of officers. They had no trouble filling the President’s role but there are never offers to stand as treasurer or secretary – both jobs require a lot of action between meetings. The craft club organiser for example ensures the next meeting will be at a location where as many members as possible can meet, parking won’t be traumatic etc. She also provides starter kits for whatever new project or skill they will be having a go at. It’s this fine attention to detail, to ensure everyone feels included, makes Mum’s group so successful. So farf!
