my opinion - I like the idea of quarterly meetings, combine em' after a mini to boost member participation - go over the typical reporting, membership #'s, financials, committee reports, ect. in an orderly fashion.
Most financial & event planning can be done thru e-mails, phone, ect. - financials can be turned in once a month or so to Phil during mini's, ect. - I've missed very few meetings and have been doing it for 5 YEARS, some of you may remember weekly meetings with the formation of the club - 13 weeks straight - we know what's necessary to efficiently run the org and it doesn't take place around a table once a month
