Great Expectations -- Membership Growth Handbook
AEU Membership CommitteeGreat Expectations is a society growth and development handbook which contains a wide variety of materials on creating and maintaining healthy growing Ethical communities, including articles written within and outside the Ethical Movement, and forms and good practices examples from societies across the country. Great Expectations was first produced in notebook form in 1995, by Joy McConnell (former AEU Growth and Development Professional) and Stephanie Dohner (former Chair, AEU Membership Committee). The handbook is a very significant resource which is now available in digital format through the AEU website. A CD version of the handbook is available directly from the AEU Office.
Chapters 1 through 17 of this first digital edition may contain organizational data, such as societies addresses, officers, committees and its members that are not currrent. For current information, you may visit the rest of the AEU website.
The Membership Committee will update, revise and add new material in subsequent digital editions.
This digital project was initiated and directed by Jeremy Herman with the assistance of the AEU Membership Committee. The project's cost was covered by grants and contributions from the AEU and from the Membership Committee's budget. Marty Hedler, of the Riverdale Society, did the technical work -- building and uploading the website and making the CD's. He also made a significant financial contribution to the project through a substancial reduction of his fee.
In 2009, Tim Beardsley wrote "an easy-access guide to the online version of Great Expectations" which is recommended reading either before or during the study of Great Expectations. This guide is accessible directly from the AEU Library or from inside the password-protected GE pages. Each section of the guide is also accessible under a link, [overview], that appears at the beginning of each chapter in the table of contents of GE. The guide can be found at:
