Any help you want to offer is welcome! I'm going to start posting some new topics here under the general team discussion to try to get more people to chit-chat and get to know each other. The more people that start chatting in there and friending each other, the more likely we can actually get some people to turn out for an event or meet-and-greet. We also have a monthly challenge going for tracking miles walked/ran/biked/etc. and that has some participation. Since joining in on that thread, I've definitely increased my mileage!

The members of our team are very active, just not so much in our forums. We are actually the #2 SparkAmerica city right now in both monthly Fitness Minutes and SparkPoints:

p?city=Minneapolis


Right now, I go through new members about once a week and make sure to welcome them on their SparkPages and try to nudge them into the forums and introduce themselves. Usually, I can only access a fraction of them, since a lot of people have their privacy settings too tight to contact. But, when I can, I do.

Everything is pretty standard, and not really just for Team Leaders: giving the best welcome we can to new members, commenting on blogs/SparkPages and keeping everyone motivated, etc. If you have any ideas on how to increase the forum participation, please let me know.

Hey SNOOPY-ACE, sorry I missed you on here. I'm not sure why I didn't get a notice that you were replying to this thread. Yes, there are some ways you can help if you are interested! I'll send you a PM with some details. Thanks!

Yes, I can definitely use help! I've been so swamped with work this year that I've really been lagging being active in the forums here for weeks. Now that it is slowly getting warmer out, it might be cool to coordinate a local meet-up, if there is interest.

What would you like to know? I'm still here, but in a much less "active" position. Two others are working the day-to-day stuff BUT we're such a large team that I'm sure we could use more help................especially active, young help!!!

I've thought long and hard about this and I'm very "close" to stepping down.
If anyone is interested in taking my spot, I'll happily hand over the reins.
My life has gone in a slightly different direction and I just don't feel like I'm doing enough to lead this HUGE group in the manner in which it deserves. I'm not leaving Spark, but I'd be thrilled if some energetic, enthusiastic member would step up and run with this group!
Please respond either here or private message me if you have questions.
Thanks all!
Happy Sparking!
