The Inspired "Sub"

Inspiring NetWorkers

By Mark Sturgell, Great Lakes Bureau Chief Email article RSS feed

So you have joined a networking group, paid the dues and made the commitment to attend the weekly meetings. But you soon realize that you cannot attend every week - a key membership requirement. What now? Can you find a substitute - a "sub" - to go in your place? What does that mean, "in your place"? What should it mean? Is finding the "right" sub something you should treat lightly? Do you belong to a networking group that requires attendance? I hope so. Without regular attendance you cannot really be a good referral source, friend or anything else. Without shared time, space and information others cannot really know you, and they won't be very good referral sources, defeating your purpose for joining. How should others measure your commitment to the common cause if you are not present and if others cannot depend on your active participation?
