Organizers, I really need your input here…
Since the Tea Parties & 912 groups are mostly run by people who have never done this before, we are all learning on the job! Some have skills that come in quite handy for such an endeavor; others…. not so much But we all get an A+++ for effort.
With 20 months or so under our belts, some organizations are still going strong while others are finding it hard to keep members involved. The reasons vary widely, but most organizers have dealt with this issue at some point. Often, you come up with a “killer idea” that you just know will reignite the fire, right! Yet, knowing what motivates people is often not what we think, and the results can be discouraging.
We need to support one another. We need to hear from those of you who have found the answers, who know what works, who have a strong active leadership team and membership.
We also need to hear from those who are struggling. Nothing to be ashamed of, we don’t all have psychology degrees, but we can listen and learn from one another. Share your questions; somone in “your shoes” probably has some great advice.
HERE’S HOW YOU CAN HELP THE ENTIRE TEA PARTY MOVEMENT -
Organizers across America are working their tails off every day to turn this country around. Encourage and assist one another – togther we become stronger.
There are two ways:
1) I’ve posted this on the Blog at FindALocalTeaParty.com so that everyone can respond, ask questions, get input from other organizers, share success stories, encourage others, etc… Here’s the link: http://findalocalteaparty.com/blog/tea-party-912-website-promotion/tea-party-dilemma/
2) If you have something that you don’t want to post on the board but would like to pose or suggest to the other organizers, simply email me; I’ll forward it on or whatever you need.
I see many Tea Party / 912 sites with little recent activity… No time to simmer; TURN UP the Heat!
PS – our Facebook page is taking off !! If you haven’t already, remember to implement some of those facebook tools for your site.
