AVP is going through some tough times -- for almost a year we have been struggling with ennui. Since last November, when we didn't have enough Members attend the Annual Meeting to have a quorum, all energy has drained away. We had four officers who really wanted to pull it together, but couldn't get it together. We managed to send out membership notices and hold a few lackluster programs . . . but even the Facebook page wasn't active. We are now down to three Officers and only one more Program meeting -- our Annual Meeting -- to go. And I have a hard time caring.
I am tired and this is just one more thing. I know it is important -- I WANT it to be MORE important -- but I lack the energy. I believe this is a useful organization and I am sickened that it may fade away under my leadership . . .
The September Program has been cancelled. We are supposed to have an October Board Meeting. It is on my list. At the very least, y'all deserve the opportunity to take control and re-invigorate this group. The plan is to send an informative letter to interested parties -- and pass the baton to new leaders at the Annual Meeting.
