Calling all club members: MCMAC 2008
« on: August 12, 2007, 01:43:01 AM »
We had a great Conference this year and there was a lot of enthusiasm from all who attended.  We are very thankful to all who helped plan, prepare, and work to make it happen in 2007.

Rick and Barbie have done a tremendous job on the last three conferences, putting their heart, soul, and home into them, but it is time we gave them a break.  With more people than ever talking about attending our next conference, we need club members to step forward and take the initiative to prepare so that we can line up speakers, get sponsors, plan fund raisers to keep us in the black, and all of the other things that we've talked about in the MCMAC 2007 section of the forum.

If we cannot get enough support to chair the committees and begin planning the conference within the next month, we'll have to postpone the next conference until 2009.  With that in mind, please let us know if you're willing to contribute to making the conference happen in 2008.  Thank you for your help.

Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, "In this world, Elwood, you must be" - she always called me Elwood - "In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant." Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me.

I'm always willing to help, but with all that will be going on with the building of the new house and getting things set up and settled, I don't know if I can chair anything this year.   :(  I am willing to help coordinate the coral/clam auction again, as I have decent ties with Shark Reef (and if we get the coral early and allow acclimation time, he's got really beautiful stuff for SPS.  I'll have the 75 gallon set up for just that sort of thing in the equipment room of the new place too.   ;)

Count me in any way that I can help from way over here!   ;D

That's an easy one to answer...MOVE BACK!   ;D

Looks like we've got as much response from out of town as we have from those still local.  Hopefully we just have a lot of people who are still considering or haven't yet found this poll on the forum.

I've been discussing the club with my wife and I think I'd like to get more involved in it this year than I have in the past.  Given my current commitments, and my family which always comes first, I'm still working out what it would mean to devote more hours to the club through the coming year.

MCMAC2007 feedback from PSAS attendees (and Sanjay) starts about halfway down this page:
