I had to re-read your post a couple of times because I thought you were
taking the.....  And yes it's really handy for members to just pop in to AA
HQ and sit in on Trustees meetings. What is even easier is to keep people
updated and informed using the electronic updates AA regularly send out.
Jon said AA were looking to engage better with the public, you might also
want to look closer to home as well. I am not sure why it says on the AA
facebook page that the majority wanted a new logo. How do you know if you
haven't ask.

Some would say  this shows contempt for the members and the AA is run by a
clique.

I don’t know enough to argue otherwise.

Hi Elton

The AA is often looking for motivated and committed members to join its
various committees. In 2016 it will be a priority of the AA's Media &
Communications Committee to seek to better engage with local authority tree
officers. For my sins I am Chair of M & C this year and you are more than
welcome to come along and see how significant changes such as the logo
design are realised.

All of those on the Board of Trustees are members, voted in by members -
surely that’s how members get their say?

In a sense why does it matter what it looks like, the run of the mill
membership can't use it anyhow!

Jonathan

Jonathan,
Yes, your right, why give these run of the mill types the opportunity as
members to express their views!
