I would like to thank everybody for another great year with The Luncheon Society ™. 2009 was our twelfth season and there are already some great events planned with others in the works for 2010.
Good conversation is worth having. From those early days back in 1997, when there were only three of us, The Luncheon Society has grown steadily in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York. There are some fun things planned for the future. Look for a Washington DC pod in the summer of 2010.
Also I would like to personally thank Naomi Epel for her help in 2009.
We are making some changes for The Luncheon Society in 2010. Annual Dues. Starting in 2010, The Luncheon Society will have dues of $20 per person annually. Like Public Broadcasting, The Luncheon Society is solely member-supported. The cost you pay for a Luncheon Society gathering pays for your luncheon as well as a portion of the speaker’s luncheon, including tax and tip. I want to keep The Luncheon Society experience alive long after the last dish has been put away and the last table has been cleared.
