    need your participation on June 17 2014 at a special general meeting details below As NCMUG is approaching its 30th birthday it is having a mid life crisis We asked members to respond to a survey recently because 8 board members have been struggling to maintain an organization that fulfills the changing needs of the Mac Users community Just as computers have changed over the last 30 years and new devices have been developed many user groups have changed or disappeared Over the last few years you may not have realized some things that have happened to NCMUG Postage rates and printing costs increased and the paper newsletter went away No one wanted to edit an electronic newsletter and it went away Due to increasing costs and lack of volunteers to stage MCE it went away Since we were taking in less than 20 00 in raffle money some months and we were receiving very few vendor donations and still had to make monthly reports to the State of California the raffle went away Members were not buying books even at our discounted prices so book sales went away We should have as many as 15 on the Board of Directors and for the last two years despite requests for members to step up and join us we have been operating with 8 and we are approaching burn out Our memberships dropped by 70 from 384 to 314 in the last 16 months The total loss was even greater when the additional household or business names associated with a membership also went away To put this in perspective in January 2012 there were 462 memberships We have been averaging about 30 members at the regular meetings not enough to make it worthwhile for speakers to prepare presentations and travel long distances to come to our meetings Our biggest financial costs are for liability coverage and rent for space for general meetings and SIGS that are lightly attended The board participated in a day long retreat last Saturday 5 17 2014 and we had long and frank discussions on the condition of NCMUG and its future The results of the survey were gone over thoroughly In addition 11 General members had been interviewed before the retreat and 3 of those interviewed joined the board at the retreat on Saturday The members did not realize the depth and breadth of the group s challenges In many respects the situation is disheartening but there is still some interest and passion to keep the group going The next few months are going to be critical for the future of NCMUG We need the support of the members now as never before We are going to need help to focus on defining our goals and future direction We are inviting and encouraging members to join us for a very important and critical discussion regarding the desired future of NCMUG All members are invited to join us on Tuesday June 17 2014 from 6 8 30
