Gentlepersons--My very best to all of you!
Might I respectfully suggest weekend meetings for this organization? As an educator, especially one with students doing rotations around a major hospital, mid-week meetings mean hiring a substitute (not that one is available in my case) and leaving town in the middle of many ongoing activities.
I would be delighted to attend a Saturday afternoon meeting womewhere, with or without fancier meals and such, and might be able to stay overnight should that be necessary. Thursday starts are virtually impossible for me. I am probably not alone in this.
Thanks for reading!
