What is a POD ?
A POD is any group of NAME members who want to meet and have fun but not be bothered with formality of a club: charter, report, bank account, officers etc. They have a name like a club. Members from the POD identify themselves as POD members. The leader sends me the names of people in the POD and up to now I just take care of them. We are going to add id to the NAME database so we know who of the NAME members are working/playing in a group. There is no requirement for a minimum number of members in a group. I got the idea several years ago when I was making calls to members following up on membership. In one case a group in the Midwest was meeting, requiring those in their group to be NAME members but just having fun. In another, I talked to an older woman who once a week met online with a friend using SKYPE. They pointed their cameras a projects on their desks they were working on and used SKYPE to talk and share their work projects at the same time. I was so taken with this concept of informal friendships but within the NAME organization that I talked to the Board and they agreed to formalize the process.
Now as a follow on, I'm organizing a POD based on tiny doors. I got this idea from a local artists group that makes little door scenes and shows them in windows of local businesses. In Googling, I found there are several groups around the country that do similar things with door scenes. I posted a note about this to our Facebook group recently and am following with this message. If any of you would like to be in our tiny doors POD, just let me know and I'll add your name.
