At Commonweal, we're brainstorming ways to better attract and keep families who have children. We want to make it easier for them to be part of the group, without overwhelming them or putting up unnecessary roadblocks. I'm talking about factors like: - Convenient meeting times and conditions - Committee work obligations We're considering a Sunday-afternoon general meeting, for this and other reasons. Mostly we meet on weeknights now. We're also looking for ways for them to be involved, but without the committee time commitment. Right now we ask one adult in each household to serve; most couples actually serve on two or more in practice. But we don't think parents of toddlers could manage that. We provide babysitting at meetings by advance reservation. What requirements do other groups make of parents? Do you consider their needs more than other "busy subsets?" What meeting times work out best? Do you offer special services or assistance? Other modifications? Best, Christina Hilliard Commonweal Village at Forest Hills <-- our latest name-permutation Grafton, Massachusetts > Prelim site plan established; hitting our timeline milestones.
