NEXT MEETING

PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO THE FIFTH SECTION BELOW FOR INFORMATION ABOUT OUR NEXT MEETING.

Please join us for socializing from 6:15 pm > 7:00 pm or, if you prefer, come only from 7:00 pm > 8:55 pm for our formal discussion. We provide coffee/decaf and chocolate-chunk cookies and peanut-butter cookies. Or you could bring your own snack from home or the Salt Lake Roasting Co. branch on the first floor of the library.

[Everyone is welcome to join John Karls afterwards half a block south at Cannella's for drinks to socialize and/or continue the discussion -- everyone is welcome but Dutch treat.]

WHO/WHAT WE ARE

We are a U.S. public-policy monthly discussion group founded in the Fall of 2005 that meets on the second Wednesday of each month (with adjustments to avoid secular/religious holidays) at the Salt Lake Library (210 East 400 South).

The topic is selected by the attendees of the previous month’s meeting. The focus is usually a book but frequently comprises only news items from magazines/newspapers/etc. This bulletin board serves, inter alia, as a place for members to post comments or additional reference materials prior to each meeting.

Our attendance averages 11-12. Participants come from all walks of life but our regular attendees include 5 attorneys and 3 University of Utah scientists.

There are approx. 150 recipients of our weekly newsletter, many of whom reside outside Utah. In each monthly cycle, the first newsletter announces the topic, the second includes a Short Quiz, the third includes Suggested Answers, and the fourth includes a Suggested Discussion Outline.

27 SIX-DEGREES-OF-SEPARATION E-MAIL CAMPAIGNS AND 3 SHORT-FUSE CAMPAIGNS

We take great pride in our Six-Degrees-Of-Separation E-mail campaigns to America's decision makers which, with only a few computer keyboard key strokes, can be sent by each of our members (1) to the decision maker, and (2) to all of the member's friends and acquaintances requesting them to do the same in an unending chain.

Accordingly, we also take great pride that each of our official recommendations has been approved unanimously at one of our meetings or, at most, received only one dissent (in which case we say there was a "consensus" rather than "unanimity").

All 27 e-mail campaigns over the years are collected in this section. They include 6 e-mails sent by John Karls that did not receive an official endorsement for the rest of our members to send. The titles of the 21 official recommendations are ALL CAPS and the titles of 6 unofficial recommendations are lower case.

In addition, there is occasionally posted in the next section “Proposed Topic for Future Meetings” a proposal which has a SHORT-TIME FUSE because a governmental unit is soliciting PUBLIC COMMENTS for a limited time period with a SPECIFIED DEADLINE that will occur before our next regularly-scheduled meeting.

In such cases, our weekly e-mail invites all of our approximately 150 members to participate in an Ad Hoc Working Group and, if they take action, the results are still posted in this section. Currently there are 3 such reports, all pertaining to The Wanton Destruction of Great Salt Lake.
