This is great, very useful information, Lynn!
Just curious, do you ever have to remove someone from the team if they are at <90% attendance or just not committed and participating? We had an application process this year, but a low number of applicants, so we could not be very selective. Hopefully this changes next year. We have 15 students (down from over 30 last year), but I still feel this is a bit on the large side. This year we have a core group of 5-8 students that do everything, and I’m having a hard time engaging the rest of the team outside the actual Cafe. I really like your idea of a pledge in the beginning. We have committees also, but changing them halfway through the year is novel! Thanks so much for this.
