Re Wilfried ‘s and other comments.
I was under the impression that Overseas Members of the SOC could vote at AGM’s via email? Correct me if I am wrong (being by nature a very self effacing person!!!!!!!!!) With regards to further discussion about the Management Committee decision I feel that as an ex -member of the SOC and intermittent poster that this discussion should continue in public as it directly affects us 1600 topic posters. For what its worth, my personal experience in national politics is that “The Oxygen of Publicity” resolves most things and makes accountable democratically decided decisions.
Cheers Guys and Gals!!!!! Ted
