Casual Meeting at Royal Cup Coffee
A group of us took a well-earned rest from our workday on January 31 and headed to Royal Cup Coffee. Located on the corner of 10th Street and Redondo Ave, this local Long beach coffee shop is known for its delicious gourmet sandwiches and exotic smoothies.
As we munched on our food and sipped our drinks, we had some great conversations. Someone brought up the subject of how far Rotaract Long Beach has come since its founding one year ago. People remembered that around this time last year, we were a fledgling club of just fifteen members! Now we have over 40 members who regularly attend the group’s bi-weekly meetings, plan events and participate in ongoing service projects.
Another topic we discussed was how to handle people who RSVP to events but do not show up. Some said those individuals should be provided constructive criticism because not following up on commitments is not professional. Others suggested that if we did a better job with inspiring people and building up excitement about events, they would be much more likely to attend. Overall, it was a good opportunity for members to share their perspectives and examine possible solutions.
Did I mention the food and drinks were amazing?
