If you didn’t already know, CMG is unique in that it is a member-driven organization. At each Annual Members Meeting (AMM), those of us who choose to come together as members contribute to shaping the direction of CMG. The AMM customarily alternates between locations in southern and northern California to better serve our statewide membership.
More information can be found on the Registration page. Additionally, all finalized details will be sent to those who register in a Welcome Letter.
The Annual Members Meeting (AMM) for 2020 will be in Sacramento starting the evening of Friday, January 17, 2020, and through Sunday, January 19, 2020.
Any and all men who have attended a gathering – and have an interest – are encouraged to attend the daily work sessions to contribute to the conversation.
If you are signed up to receive our email blasts, you will be notified of how to register and participate. For context, it helps if you have participated in at least one gathering. An AMM is not recommended as a first event for men who have never been to a local event or gathering only because it is more about establishing practices & policies than it is about connecting men at the heart, even though we still do.
We reserve the right to radically change the traditional schedule, but there will be social time and a Welcome Dinner on Friday evening, followed by the core meeting sessions Saturday and Sunday. A light continental breakfast and lunch will be provided during the meeting.
Saturday evening, everyone is set free for dinner and checking out the town. Many of us dine together and do a little exploring, based on the recommendations of local CMG brothers.
Normally on Sunday, we hold a board meeting in which CMG elects all four officers each year for a one-year term. All other appointed positions on the Board of Directors (e.g., Web Guy, Registrar, Archivist, Marketing & Outreach Directors, etc.) are considered at this meeting and positions are filled for the year. If you are interested in filling a board position, plan to attend the meeting, especially on Sunday, and stand for (self-nominate) the position for which you would like to be responsible, or another member can nominate you. If you have an interest in doing something specific, send a note to the email@example.com.
Your participation and engagement in creating positive change ensure that CMG continues to be a vibrant, relevant organization well into the future.
To become a voting member at an AMM, you need to have volunteered 25+ hours in a recognizable CMG capacity over the past three years, and pay the annual membership of $1.00 cash, paid at the meeting.
