we had the president, secretary and another I think it was recently have to resign from our states ME/CFS society all due to poor health.. (ive no idea if they managed to fill the postions and they were going to have to change their rules to make it so they could have a smaller committee as even finding people for that who can attend meetings is hard)

Its sad that our groups struggle for members.


Making the most of it
I was on my local ME/CFS committee for a while and attended meetings by teleconference from bed but had to give it up as I just wasn't well enough.

Skypeing and teleconferencing is one way to get people involved if they are well enough, but housebound.
