Yes, there will be some business discussed at our General Meeting that day after latihan, but mostly we will have the opportunity to gather together (finally!) and check in in person. We will have a potluck at Spring Street Park, right across from Spring Street Center. I am hoping to see many of you!
The time is coming for a new committee. The last three newsletters have outlined the roles of Chair, Vice Chair, and Treasurer. Here are the activities of the Secretary:
-Take minutes of meetings.
-Store pertinent group documents (minutes, passwords, maintenance documents, and treasurer’s documents, etc.) in an organized and recoverable format.
Are you a good organizer and note-taker? Training and mentoring are being offered. Please consider.
During shelter in place, all the regional centers lost revenue, and had to cut their donations to the region. This has resulted in a budget shortfall for SPNW. If you can possibly afford an extra donation to the region, it will be greatly appreciated.
Just a reminder that after Latihan July 4th there will be a potluck picnic and General Meeting. Let’s hope we have good weather and a great turnout!
We are getting close to the time for choosing a new Dewan, which leads me to ask, “Would you consider being our VIce-Chair?” Duties include:
-Participating in monthly Dewan meetings
-Cross-training to back up Chair, Treasurer, and Secretary
-Back up Secretary when Secretary is unavailable
-Post group news in weekly eblast
The current Dewan is willing to train the incoming group and mentor them for a period of six months.
The basement kitchen is now nicely stocked and ready to roll for our July 4th potluck and general meeting. THANK YOU, Debbie! The picnic itself will take place across the street in Spring Street Park, weather and space permitting. We would love to see you at our first in-person social of the year.
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
It is time to consider a new committee. The current committee has served since before the begining of the pandemic.
The duties of the job:
- Insure there is a good place for members to do the latihan
- Set agenda and direction according to testing for the group
- Set meeting times and places
- Promote group harmony
- Attend regional meetings Meetings once a month, currently second Monday evenings
- Gather information and coordinate with other committee members rental agent(s); review and confirm compliance with city, state, and federal filings.
- Track property maintenance calendar and confirm completion of action if needed
- Respond harmoniously to member input, queries, and needs.
- Do the latihan on a regular basis with other committee members and helpers, and work with helpers to promote a harmonious group life.
It is extremely important for our group to have someone who can devote a couple of hours a week to doing this work. The processes are in place. It is not difficult.
When I took over the job from Honora HIldreth, I began documenting all of the duties for this position and creating templates to be sure I wouldn’t miss things. Fortunately a great deal of work had already been done by others! Your committee has also worked diligently on making the job simpler, and created a flexible and dynamic document delineating the division of labor which this committee has agreed to.
This means that it would a simpler job for the new chairr than the it was when I began as chair. And, there will be documentation that the new chair to refer to when the need arises.
My hope is that some individuals will pre-test before our annual general meeting and election of officers in January
Your Brother In Subud,
