I'm a member of the Windy City Z Club (Chicago, IL area). We have the same situation as Dave and Tim mention. I, unfortunately, am one of the majority, i.e. I attend about one or two events a year. At least I attend some events.

I guess that it's a matter of priority. I love my Z's but I have three children, a home (to maintain), tennis, etc.

I think one trick is to make new members feel more accepted. When they do attend an event, several 'regular' members should make a concerted effort to have them join their discussions, etc. While in these discussions, they should ask for the new (inactive) member's opinions, etc. Maybe use name tags.

My New Year's resolution is to attend more events. Yeah, right.
