Second Edition: Collaboration
A genealogical society is founded so that a group of people with a common interest may share and exchange information. A common interest, however, will not sustain a society forever. Other components must be present for a society to be successful.
Among these components are the following:
A society does not thrive without good leadership. There must be cooperation between the leadership and members. The leadership sets the tone of the society and if the leadership is not progressive and does not recognize that all members have equal standing within the organization, the society will not survive. The society is made up of people with various talents and genealogical interests. It takes a great deal of collaboration to see that those talents and interests are utilized to make the society strong.
