Re: OT: Breathing New Life Into An Old Club

It is not at all unusual for new people to join a club and quickly be made 
Officers, to be told how much they and their energy are needed and how their 
fresh vision and new ideas will be welcomed, but then the unsolicited counseling 
starts, and the briefings on how things have always been done, and quiet 
resistence appears toward moving in new directions, or moving too vigorously in any 
direction at all, and the club drifts back to the real status quo, with 
people talking about how bored they are, and how they new members and new ideas, 
while most of the members they have recruited move off in new directions.

I've heard this story many times, and I imagine it is not just an AIS story.

Anner, this is certainly not unique to iris clubs.  My responce has been that if they wanted things to continue as before, they shouldn't have changed officers.
