Thanks, Cindy!


I'll start the introductions here. I'm Stephanie Donovan and the current
President of STC Houston. 


I look forward to sharing ideas and hearing about things that have worked
with your chapters. We are trying some new things this year as well, and so
I will share those if we have successes. 


My biggest question for the group is with regards to meeting attendance. Our
chapter's attendance has been steady for the past couple of years, but it is
lower than in years' past. 


I have spent a lot of time publicizing our events and we have a social media
committee that does a great job of getting the word out to all social media
outlets too. 


I am seeing some older members show back up and we've had a few visitors are
a result of this, but the numbers have actually stayed about the same. Maybe
this takes time to build?


Have you found a good way to get folks to your meetings again? Please share.




Stephanie Donovan

STC Houston, President

Subject: [Stc_presidents-discuss] Welcome to the Presidents' Email List


Good morning!


My name is Cindy Pao, and I am the team lead for the Outreach Team on the
Community Affairs Committee.


This email is your notice that the Presidents' email list is officially
online. Thank you to everyone who has advocated for this list and helped
round up email addresses.


I suspect that some people will receive this email twice. Where it has been
possible, I've added the email alias for a chapter's president as well as
any personal email address I have for a chapter president. If you receive
the email twice, you can decide whether you want to leave both email
addresses subscribed or remove one of them. 


I encourage you to use this email list to communicate with each other -
especially with the information sharing encouraged by the CAA - and ask
around about best practices.


Also know that the entire Outreach team is subscribed to this email list so
that we know when you need help.


Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

"In London, my wife and I knew we would never take a bus, because we are
American, and Americans do not take buses. We're never sure how to get on
them or how to pay, and we're always afraid they'll suddenly go in the wrong
direction. I'm not saying Americans are unadventurous. We tamed the West and
went to the Moon. But we did not do these things in buses. " Dave Barry 2014
