I would not call that bad news! It seems to me you are now in charge of two
groups: the local orlando.pm, and this new statewide email based group. And
with 6 people in orlando, you are way ahead of miami.pm.
recruitment? whats that? I have had two local people email me, and I have
emailed them with url of web page, but neither has 'joined'.
I'm Not Thru Planning how to go about recruiting... other than putting up a web
page.. The local paper has weekly 'computers' column with mentions of new web
pages.. I will at some point ask them to include the miami.pm.org page, to see
if that shakes loose any local users. I work at a community college, and know
of zero PERL users here (one if you count me). I also plan to contact academic
computer lab types at the other local Universities to see if they have any
In reading some of the other pm group pages, I notice some have never had a f2f
and see no need to. Perhaps someone in FL could volunteer to organize a chat
session sometime to create a 'virtual' statewide meeting?
ps (why am I shown as rchcharles?)
