committee meeting

I chaired my first committee meeting last night, which proved to be quite a long affair as lots has happened, and there's lots about to happen... Most of which was just the general goings on, preparing for social events etc.

One point decided that I should announce, is that it was decided that we will no longer advertise every week in the paper about what the next meeting is. This will come into effect after next weeks new members evening. Instead, a text message from myself to members each week puts the information in your pocket, and will save us a considerable amount of money each year which we feel can be better spent on other things.

Our monthly column in the Farming Section of the Cornish & Devon, plus the information on this website are our ways of keeping in touch with family, friends and anyone interested in the club. New members are generally recruited through the new members evening, or are are friends of friends. For those who aren't, the newspaper and website will be our ways of attracting them in. Please note that few, if any other YFC clubs advertise in their local paper each week and are sucessful. Any questions or issues, please get in contact with me.
