The latest copy of the Journal was sitting on the office chair on arrival home. Have read the newsletter very interesting, able to put names to faces due to some fine portraits. Have flicked through the Journal, some interesting reading ahead.
I wonder how smelly it would be in the carriages behind a open fish truck.

So you would appreciate a 'Meet the Commitee' page on the webbsite. Photos, brief words, wouldn't that look nice :-)

If enough people ask then perhaps the commitee would agree - to be fair, haven't asked them before !

My first thought was that you were not serious Simon. But, ... thinking about it, I think that would be really useful to make "faceless" (I mean that in no was as criticism!) Trustees more human and if we attend a meeting we'll know who we are talking to.

The L&YR Society are far better at "humanising" their officers which makes them seem far more approachable. Sadly, our Journal is not a patch on theirs, either.

Constructive criticism only please.

Our new editor will be doing his best and welcomes articles.

Steve, with his moderators hat on ... and an article to write

L&Y site was one of the ones I saw it on. Most seem a bit formal, would prefer less so whilst not facebook either ?

One thing that struck me when first meeting people at a show was just how approachable they were, didnt matter if they were commitee, officers or members, it is one of the reasons I joined. Have since found they were not the exception - quite the opposite.

A few of my modeller friends expect the society to be a bit snooty till point out that I'm a member. It can put people off, so a friendly 'Heres the commitee' may help.

If include officers then 1-2 line explanation of duties would be good.

I think it is a good idea and agree not formal and "snooty" but not something I would put on my Facebook page either.

I would agree that trying to promote that we are not a stuck up bunch would be good, that members joining could see we are friendly etc and all want to talk about our common interest which is the LNWR

Would you under the committee names put a couple of lines about the person? i.e. Ted Talbot, "Notable author of several books including.."

I guess the other thing to consider would be a presidents roll call?

Cheers

David
