The Club — The Way You Want it to Be
Please find attached a 1-page executive summary and 8 pages of more detailed notes following the member forums, which 49 members were able to attend.
Members participated generously, offering encouragement, some significant preferred directions, suggesting clearer conditions for member volunteering, as well as raising some important questions for writing the next chapter for the club. There were a total of 132 interventions from members and also three written submissions with many helpful, specific suggestions and offers of help. Thanks to all who participated!
We had a constructive discussion with the Management Committee yesterday evening, Tuesday, July 6, about the member dialogue. The MC is already taking steps to implement actions on some suggestions quickly, such as reinitiating the new members cocktail, one of which was held with success last Saturday. Its format and organisation were in part informed by conversations at the forums.
We propose holding another forum in the autumn with longer notice in order to reach still more members and in particular more of our many recently joined members.
We hope you will enjoy reading the summary and notes. You will be able to find the minutes of the MC discussion on the members-only "Transparency site" (along with other club minutes and planning documents: a treasure trove for savvy club members). You can request access to this website if you don't already have it by sending an email to: .
Thanks again for your attention and participation in the life of the club!
