Many thanks to all who responded to our Regional Survey, it certainly gave the Regional Committee food for thought and a good discussion as to changes and activities we might implement. However, what was obvious was that many of you think we are getting things right. Regional Day had more members than ever attending on a Sunday. Entries for the Kickstart Exhibition 2014 was more than for several previous years. 2014 Summer School has only one place left in 5 star accommodation at a higher rate than the Halls of Residence we used for many years. The majority of Branches do attend the AGM in September - it would be great to have more Branch members in attendance though.
The Region covers six counties and it must be obvious that we cannot possibly put all our activities in one area of the region for a particular Branch. We try to distribute activities around the region or make the meeting place as central as possible to accommodate those who have to travel. If Branches are finding they are unable to afford the more costly speakers for Dayschools and Talks, then perhaps this is the time for Branches to group together in order to do this.
Each Member of the Committee responsible for a particular activity has reported on comments and suggestions from the Survey.
