Building EAA Chapter Membership - Conquering the Caveman - FunPlacesToFly.com

Before I say anything about building EAA Chapter membership I have to talk about men. I’m not leaving women out because they aren't important to an organization; it's just that women don't seem have the same issues that men do when it comes to being a social animal. Women have an inherent ability to "join in" and become part of any group they show interest in.

My wife, who was a research scientist for many years, used to work with a team of Nobel Prize winning scientists, who at times, drove her nuts. Sometimes she would come home at the end the day, steaming and yelling "ARRRGH! Those MEN! They are a bunch of stubborn Neanderthals!" Although I often took offense to some of her comments, I knew it was probably best to just lay low and not throw fuel on the fire.
