Folks, got any tidbits to share about activating and recruiting volunteers
for your groups?

Good news, last Wednesday on August 9th, we convened our 3rd anniversary
meeting. About 200 of our 4300 members turned out in the room at Redfin.

Moving forward, I need to get our current activities to a state of
self-sufficiency with volunteers activated and effective at running say our
monthly meeting with little help from me.

What I need to stave off is burn-out. I've been feeling it creep up. For
the future what I'd like to do is start working on two projects: 1) a form
of a trade association for software engineers (more AARP than Teamsters
Union); and 2) launch the John Hunter Free School of Python.

Recruiting volunteers to take over the mountains I've already climbed and
can describe will help me mount my attempts to summit new challenges.
That'll help me keep fresh and activated in our group and the global Python

All your thoughts welcome.
