The Private Members area now includes a Contact List, a Skills Selector and a Discussion Forum. We see this as instrumental in getting the membership closer together.  All members are invited to put these facilities to good use and make sure their details are included / updated by using the online update form. To log in to the private area you will need to enter your surname in lower case and your membership number (do contact John Gallen if you have any access problems).  In the near future the Forum will be used for online meetings or discussions on particular specialist subjects. Volunteers to be on our panel of experts should contact John Gallen with details of their area of specialism.  We also now have a mass email system which (with permission of the President) can be used to contact all members who have provided an email address.
