If there's more structure in terms of creating official positions within
SPUG, then certain people (myself not included though :) ) may feel more
inclined to contribute and may feel that they have more purpose (e.g. Dir.
of Speaking Engagements, Dir. of Publicity, Social Coordinator, Recruiting
Liaison, Sys Admin, etc.), just like in any organization. You'll have a much
easier time recruiting "volunteers" that way. Based on the attendance that I
observed at a couple of meetings last year, maybe we could do a better job
at getting the word out about our existence to the 1000+ Puget Sound Perl
coders out there, so that we can all benefit from the collective Perl brain
power here (or maybe it's just that their attendance is as flaky as mine).
Then on the other hand, it seems like SPUG is doing well with little
politics/bickering with most authority vested in Tim, so maybe if it ain't
broken, don't fix it... Just my $0.02.
