I suspect they don't know. The only reason I know is that Barb came up to me in the parking lot on Saturday and asked if I'd be interested in being on the committee.
I'm interested (at least in the membership database component) but I'm already over-committed and behind schedule on everything I do for RMOC. :-\
I agree. I thought this one would be a no-brainer. Maybe people are feeling extra stressed because of the holiday season, too. Or just over-extended, in general.
