Boundaries & Relations
This is a partial email we received from a concerned Mo Fed member. This is what has prompted a new look at the Boundaries. We all know something needs to be done. We need to get feedback from our clubs and follow through with some much-needed changes. There has been talk of 5 districts, 4 districts or even just 2 districts.
What we have is not sustainable. We now have only one club in the Southeast District and 3 clubs each in the Central and West Central Districts. How can we expect those clubs to organize a state festival?
I understand that we have done all that we can think of to boost club membership and support individual clubs. Instead of burying our heads in the sand, I believe that we need to do something to support these struggling districts.
I am asking that we get this issue on our meeting agenda and take some action.
I also believe that, after we get the districting issue decided, it is not necessary for us to have six meetings a year. There are often a good number of "No Report." Quarterly meetings would be enough. I would recommend meetings in January (could be postponed until February if weather requires) April, July and October.
I know that all of this will require a large amount of discussion and work to change our Constitution, but I do believe that it is necessary.
Thanks for your consideration.
