I have been the acting "Branch Manager", and I am willing to share our experiences with you.
You have taken the most difficult step: organizing the first Gathering.
After that, you just keep doing it, with variations to suit the circumstances.
Here, I have been really well blessed with a great "family" of bright, kind, caring LEAF-friends.
Congrat on your first gathering.
Gary provided some info on the success of LEAF gatherings. There is another key element to its success for the future. That is the group needs dedicated leaders (organizer, branch manager, etc.) such a garygid, gascant, tonywilliams, etc. for the gatherings to succeed. Then the gathering needs the dedicated enthusiastic owners to attend. So far the CA gatherings have succeeded.
Good luck to Colorado!
