Are Associations really a picnic?

It's 10:00 A.M. and I'm watching one of my favorite shows, Sunday Morning on CBS. The story I'm watching is really a pitch for a new book on picnics. The author of the book presents picnics as the opportunity to break out of your normal life and enjoy the company of friends and like-minded people over food in a different environment.

I suppose that's what we offer to our members. A picnic of sorts, where we give our members the opportunity to break out of their normal life to enjoy the company of like-minded people. Yes there is training, networking, papers, blogs, websites, committees, elections...on and on. But perhaps it all starts as a picnic? You may even think that all of these activities are simply picnics in a larger picnic? What the heck, it is Sunday morning. Have a wonderful day!
