I'm sure this was mentioned recently (how recent is recent?) about=20 using the "buddy" system=20 to help integrate new members/observers/interested people attending a=20 meeting for the first =20 time.=20 =20 We want to try this out, and are proposing, at the moment, to have one=20 designated buddy to bring =20 people up to speed (as there's never more than one or two new people at=20 this stage). This will=20 avoid having to "assign" someone at the start of each meeting. Or is=20 that just not a problem?=20 =20 Good idea? Bad idea? It was pointed out that there's nothing worse=20 than new people being=20 referred to as "the new people". Anyone got any other acceptable=20 terminology, or do you just=20 avoid singling them out at all? But how do you do that and still make=20 them feel welcome, special, warm and cuddly all at once?=20 =20 Apologies for any gremlins ("=20"s) that might pop up in this post - I=20 don't think the list server=20 likes me very much!=20 =20 ;^) =20 =20 P.=20 =20 "Tae be yersel and tae mak that worth bein=20 Nae harder job tae mortals has been gien."=20 --Hugh MacDiarmid=20 paulm [at] mhie.ac.uk | http://corrieneuchin.mhie.ac.uk/~Paul_Milne/=20
