Just to add up ,for the very first time looks like more people have shown interest to represent WMKE @ a conference if i may,just tweak Murfys Law *,such is bound to* *happen someday *given that WMKE is growing ,i therefor would wish to request that we come up with all the metrics that will come to play if faced with similar circumstances maybe we even document it eligibility,no. of meet ups,duration of membership ,gender parity- if need be,etc etc ,This will save us the agony and time of planning physical meet ups to iron out such. It may not necessarily mean it must be entrenched in our chapters constitution but we can have it some where ,on that note am willing to spare a few minutes and seek members views through some questionnaire on what metrics should come to play should issues of representation arise again .
