I'm sure it isn’t Tim, and I know lots of those involved give up their 
valuable time to try and make it a great organisation that does its best for 
members.

But I have to say I'm amazed that  the association would do this logo thing 
in the way that it has. Makes me worry about transparency and what else is 
happening that members are not being informed of.

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!
