Friday meetings what form will they take and what will be the cost be?

As everyone should know that the Club is losing member equity every week due to low attendance at the Friday in person meetings. The money raised from events like Sparkles in the Park, Lobsterfest, Canada Day, etc. can not be used for the benefit of members and are dedicated to helping the communities we serve. This means that we must be self sufficient in paying our individual way for the operations of the Club. Currently with low attendance and prices we pay to be hosted by the ICC we lose money (Member Equity) weekly. This is a fact since we started meeting in person again. The Board has tasked the Avenue of Club Service with coming up with solutions to this problem. We have a short period of time to do this as we would like to introduce a solution and perhaps a new model in January after the Holiday break.

This is an opportunity to address a number in inequities that are currently in place. Should members who attend in person subsidize members who do not attend in person? Should we adjust the number of in person and online meetings so more members can participate in building our Club and serving our community? How do we share costs across all members?

We need to hear from everyone, together there is an answer to this opportunity to become a better Club.
