Don and I are good examples of folk who have been able to pop in a few times, definitely benefitted from the group, but not been there enough to really participate much. I think it makes sense for the starters to have whoever is doing the bulk of the organizing, contacting, negotiating and work now to be the first prez, and that pretty much describes Matt.
And maybe you'd like some help with that, Matt,eh? So asking for others to participate as VPs, treasurer etc., is probably a good idea.
I leave the rest to you members who are there more often. I'm busy reading up on natural planted tanks so I've got something to say at the Feb. meeting!
