Distribute fliers to the local community bulletin boards, hand them out at church, send out emails to friends and family and don’t forget to canvass your local library branches. After receiving some interested contacts, you can choose a moderator for the initial meeting. A vote can be taken at the first meeting to determine a permanent moderator or you may choose to make a rotation list. Be sure to get contact information in case a meeting needs to cancel for inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances.
