Thanks for your message which has now got to us.
think you should also have received an email from our secretary Sarah in
regards to the AGM - particularly with regards our move to a postal
vote this year.
Please contact me directly - or write to this list again if you need further
answers on this matter.
regards to nominations - we will be seeking them very soon - but of

My advice to you on this is that you send your payment
to Sarah in the next day or two so you can take part in the process -
particularly because renewal of memberships occurred on July 1st.
going to leave your final point with regards opening the wiki - we've
had that discussion many times as a committee and to date we have not
reached a consensus or vote in favour of doing so. However as for any
matter a new committee may come to a different conclusion.
