When Is An Invitation Not An Invitation?
Posted by auroracitizen on May 11, 2009
Have you ever had a party where you felt obligated to invite someone even though you didn’t want them to come? How did you manage that?
One way is to send the invitation so late that they have no opportunity to re-arrange their schedule to make the party.
Mayor Morris has invited various user groups and interested stakeholders in the senior ball diamond to a meeting scheduled for Monday May 11 (tonight).
In the email she states,
“In an effort to bring all parties together – and to get all the facts on the table – I am proposing to host ” one meeting ” rather than lots of one – on-ones on the same topic. It is hoped that as many members as possible will try to attend.”
The problem is that the email was sent last night at 5:59 PM — leaving folks with the difficult task to change their plans for tonight with very little notice.
Short notice equals poor attendance. For an issue of such importance — that has been in discussion for over 1 year — shouldn’t this meeting have been published further in advance.
