Portland Linux/Unix Group Advanced Topics Meeting Announcement
Who: Moderator Michael Dexter, PLUG Volunteer
What: Enduring Communities Roundtable
Where: Free Geek, 1731 SE 10th Avenue, Portland
When: Tuesday, April 19th 2016, at 7PM
Why: Live Long and PLUGsper
Why do some user groups endure for decades while others do not? What organizational structures and personalities are needed to maintain interest, attendance and participation?
Share your experiences on why the groups you have been involved with have or have not survived. Was it a Y2K preparedness group that served its purpose? Did group leadership not successfully transfer between generations? Beyond organizing the last 100 or so PLUG speakers, Michael has been involved in student and neighborhood government, plus the Oregon Latvian Society for nearly 30 years. During this time he has seen the brightest and darkest moments of volunteer organizations.
Many will head to the Lucky Lab at 915 SE Hawthorne Blvd. after the meeting.
PLUG is open to everyone and does not tolerate abusive behavior on its mailing lists or at its meetings.
