Rob Sandelin writes: So if you want to attract families with kids your number 1 concern should be HIGH quality childcare at meetings. This is so important that it bears repeating. It is IMPOSSIBLE for parents to concentrate on a meeting if they think their kids are unhappy. For most groups, this is likely to imply shelling out money for childcare. In the group I was associated with, this was one of our major ongoing expenses. Commiting to this expense is a very early way of expressing a group commitment to taking care of kids; EVERYONE pays for child care, not just parents. High quality childcare is always important, but even more so at outreach events. -- Jerry Callen jcallen [at] world.std.com "The best lack conviction, given some time to think, and the worst are full of passion without mercy." -- Joni Mitchell (borrowing from W.B. Yeats)
