Frances setting up for "Parking Day" to promote USk Tacoma
She's not gone but taking a step out of the leadership. The leadership group (admins, outings hosts, blog correspondents) had a meeting with Frances on that Saturday to work out roles for the immediate future.
Kate Buike (that's me) has assumed the roll of overall coordinator and continues as "technology manager". I can be contacted at mkbuike at comcast dot net (making the change into a real email address). Still in place are the hosts for outings: First Saturday host continues to be Tom Bradley; second Thursdays is Pam Jenkens; Third Wednesdays is Darcie Beck. All also have backups.
Behind the scenes are three administrators, as required by the Urban Sketchers Board. These are Kate Buike, Darcie Beck and Mark Ryan. Mark also is backup for the management of the technology supporting USk Tacoma. Karen Wilsey will help as backup for Facebook group admin.
Frances will no longer be sending reminders and other emails from her private email group. One option being considered is a Google Group so the members of USk Tacoma can communicate with each other via email. Our only other vehicle for that is Facebook but we do not want that to be the only option as there are some people who, understandably, will not join Facebook.
