It’s been apparent to all of us this past while that we’ve grown so much that we’re crowded at our sessions now, and while we’ve all tried to hope there was some way it was going to be resolved in a perfect way that would upset no one, that hasn’t worked and we have to face reality. You’ve been so accommodating as we got more and more crowded but it’s time we had to take some action. As a result, and with so much regret, at our last Board meeting, we passed a resolution that we have a one year moratorium on any new members, other than those on the preset membership list. We will keep a waiting list for people wishing to join and they can notify myself by email or letter that they wish to be on the list and this information will be kept by the Communications Team.
We decided we’d notify all present members either by email or regular mail of these changes and advertise them as much as we can so that no one will arrive at the next session not knowing about this. You have this information now and hopefully you’ll help us get the word out to anyone you speak with about ELO.
If anyone from out of Town wishes to start up a learning group closer to home, we’ll do our best to give you all the support we can. The hard part of this is that we don’t want to lose any of you, but at the present there doesn’t seem to be any other way.
