[San-Diego-pm] The Past, Present, and Future

I struggle to make the meetings because I am often in LA on Thursday's making attendance impossible unless my schedule shifts.  What would be the possibility of moving to a different day?  Wednesday is also not great because usually if I'm not in LA on Thursday, it's because I was there on Wednesday.

Whoops, I goofed.  The next meeting is the third Thursday of the month, which is April 21st, not April 28th.

Perl Mongers of San Diego,
What do you want for the future of the San Diego Perl Mongers?
At the present, we have meetings once a month to gather, ask questions, and talk about various topics.  Sometimes these meetings are technical, and people learn; other months the meetings are more social, and people enjoy themselves and the conversation.  In the past, this has served the group well, with numerous members getting value from the format, and sharing during the meetings.  Presently, the meeting attendance is low, and has been for some time, so there are fewer discussions and less sharing.
I could continue running the meeting in this fashion, but it doesn't feel like it's supporting the membership that well.  I could also suspend the meetings, or the group, and that doesn't feel like it would service the membership well either.  At the last meeting, discussion ensued and one idea floated was to do fewer regular meetings a year.  What do people think of this?  Are there other ideas on how things could be different, but better for everyone?
For the record, we're still going to do the April meeting at our normal place (Ansir Innovation Center) and time (Thursday, April 28th at 7 PM).  But the meeting for May and beyond that are likely to be changed due to this discussion.
I would love to hear everyone's ideas, thoughts, and opinions.  Please share.

Your local leader,
