Winners Circle Update

The current Orange County, NY Winners Circle is only temporarily open to new members. Starting February 27th, the meeting will be closed to new attendees until a new enrollment period in July.

To quote Ruth Landstrom:

In the last meeting, we decided to make a few changes to the Winners Circle. We thought that we'd try making it a closed group for the next five months (February - June), with no new additions until the summer. We also decided to increase the fee to $10/meeting and ask everybody to pay upfront for all five meetings ($50).

The intention of these changes is to increase everyone's commitment, so that the group can support us in an ongoing way. It is just too easy to bump the "me" time for all the other demands in our busy lives. If a meeting is already paid for, and we have said we'll be there, we're all more likely to show up! And that's good for everyone.

The other change is that I'll have some help with the logistics. Cindy Marsh-Croll will be handling the money, so she'll be contacting you separately about that first $50. JoAnne Bell will be sending out email reminders. And Criss Ittermann will update the NWIN blog with info about the Winners Circles.

So, please let me know if you'd like to try this new experiment, and save the dates! Meetings will be on the fourth Friday of each month, from 7:45 a.m. to 9:15 a.m., at Yoga for Well-Being, 2 Industrial Drive, Florida, New York.
