CM About.png

The MES Community Manager position was created by the MES Board of Directors in March 2013. The membership of the MES expressed to the Board that it wanted a change in the club's online offerings, and this position was created to do just that.

The Mind’s Eye Society has a wealth of unique and talented individuals and groups. We have authors, musicians, artists, crafters, the thriving LGBT community… and the list can go on and on. We have parents, cooks, and people who might be interested in trying something new, but have never really known how to get started. It is the intention of this office to reach out to all of these groups, through the lists, websites and the wiki and bring them together and sharing ideas and experiences with each other… sharing tips and knowledge with each other, and helping first-timers in getting started with their interest. This is how communities grow and expand.

While the virtual communities are not an entirely new concept, this is an entirely new incarnation. Many of the things that come from this office will be new, and there may be choices made that don't work. If so, things will change. The important part of any new program is open communication. Any member is welcome to contact this office at any time to discuss things.
