Re: How Are the Plans?
In Response To: Re: How Are the Plans? ()

Hello Anna,
Yes, I've experienced this. In fact, this year, we had to wait until January 2 to reserve the hotel, and our reunion is in July. So, they don't even book a year in advance.

Getting committee members together is typically a challenge. As you know, American society is a busy one, and rather it is a family reunion, class reunion, church meeting, etc., it's hard to schedule a meeting where everyone can attend. But, still move forward and work with what you have. In fact, there are times when we've been more effective with a handful of people, versus having everyone there and ideas and thoughts are bouncing off the walls without us making any concrete decisions. Nevertheless, when those family members, who missed a previous meeting, attend the next meeting, we just inform them what WAS decided at the previous meeting, and we are basically not open to changing things simply because they were absent. :)

Since this is your first reunion, there tends to be more of a challenge to get fund-raising participants active. However, just keep working with what you have, and in time, more will start to come on board.

Good Luck in your Planning Stage!
Mel
