I read all of the comments left here at the meeting last night.
We discussed the idea, and it comes down to this. The President, Steve has a very busy weekend schedule,most of his weekends are already planned through the summer, however, we all agreed, it is a great idea!
The monthly routine meetings are mostly filled with humdrum details,about expenses,and such. What lacks at the meetings is the member participation and idea jam sessions. Since we only schedule 1 hour for the monthly meeting,it does get pretty short.
So, we decided, that as we have done before, the president calls the meeting time and location,which has been South Shore on a few occasions.
As far as a larger member's participation event, such as a Sunday meeting, certainly is a viable option, and a good way for more members to get involved,and put their thoughts and ideas forward, that is what we really need. Tax exempt status etc etc, is not what really ignites the members imagination. Rides, and riding, that is what ignites passion!
So, as a goal, we probably will hold a Meeting during the riding season, JUNE,JULY,August, and would like to see a bunch of members ride on in,for meet and greet,idea jam session,and overall improvements that could be made for the GLMC and the members.
You might think of us like your state legislators, we represent you the members,you have a voice, and we value your views and opinions,however it is not necessary for you to be at the Monthly business meetings.
The BIG difference is: unlike your legislators, we are not squandering your money and Ideas.
Jayd has now been appointed VP, at large, and quite probably Jayd could be in charge of such a meeting. We would welcome that, as new ideas,and procedures are what keeps a club alive!
This forum is a great place to discuss ideas and issues
