Questions to be addressed include:
- Electing officers to manage the Society.
- Planning more "public" events and varying the content of our gatherings.
- Establishing a planning committee for a local conference and/or hosting the national conference.
- Aiding the national Society's work and the Cause of GKC.
- And more!
NOTE: Even though this is a "business meeting," new members (as always) are very much welcome! [Indeed, new perspectives would be particularly helpful given the focus of this meeting!]
Please RSVP for the September meeting at the bottom of this post.
If you have not already done so, please take some time to fill out the survey so we have as much data as possible to discuss at the meeting. An agenda along with a summary of the survey results will be sent to members a few days before the meeting in September.
Activity: Alignment Chart
If you're not familiar with alignment charts, here is a little article about them. These are popular memes, and we will share the best ones our own members come up with on our social media accounts. For our purposes, members can do an alignment of (a) characters in Chesterton's works, (b) biographical characters Chesterton wrote about (past and contemporary), (c) authors in Chesterton's circle, either immediate or removed by a degree (e.g., Belloc in the first case, C. S. Lewis in the second, etc.) or any other grouping that strikes a member as Chestertonian!
If you're still perplexed, here is an alignment of Disney characters as an example of the form from the web:
