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

I will introduce myself. I am the outgoing president of the Berkeley chapter. Sorta. The chapter just finished its annual election, and we had nobody to run for the vacant office. So I expect to be Acting President for some time yet.

Perhaps this is a problem other chapters have run into: lack of energetic and talented people to volunteer. Over the last 11 years, the Berkeley chapter has had only different people in the office of president, and one year with nobody in that office. How do you find and nurture new volunteers who can eventually hold chapter office?

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 Calendar
