Are there geographic areas where our membership tends to
cluster?  These might be good places to consider local
shows, maybe local chapters.  Many types of plant-related
organizations are locally based -- there are local garden
clubs, local orchid societies, etc.  Is it possible to have
local aroid societies?  This is the sort of thing that
members in the respective regions would need to handle, not
rely on the central organization.

I had a funny thought.  I had this image in my mind of an
Aroid Pride Parade. Instead of drag queens in convertibles
waving rainbow flags, do it up in an Araceae theme.  This
can get very creative if we want it to be -- in Olympia,
Washington there is the annual Procession of the Species, in
which participants dress in costumes of various endangered
animals.  I can envision a fabulous Aroid Mardi Gras....  I
think I'd better stop before I get too over-the-top.

Anyway, if there are regions where we cluster, members in
those regions might be able to put together something on the
appropriate scale.  Grassroots organizing is a good place to
