REPORT FROM THE MEMBERSHIP SECRETARIES YEAR ENDED 31 AUGUST 2005Sue and Jon Goodland
Well another year has flown by, our 11th as membership secretaries, but well over half of you have been members for even longer than that.
The Society is still flourishing with a dedicated membership of just under 1,000 members, representing 682 households and organisations,
mainly within the BS8 area. We do. however, have a fair number of members (around 151 percent who have left the area hut are still keen
to support the Society - we congratulate you on your commitment. The even better news is that CHIS has been able to attract
another 62 memhers, up 20 on last year. due to the hard work of both the committee and Society members.
Like all good organisations, we need not only the support from the members but also regular subscriptions. This year, despite a reminder in the newsletter, we had to send out 31 letters to members who had forgotten to renew their annual membership on 5 May 2005. So please, if you want to pay by cheque put a note in your diary to pay your subscription on that memorable day - 5 MAY. Why not make life even easier and go with the crowd and pay by bankerís order?
The Society really appreciates its membersí support and without it would quite simply not exist.
Bankerís order forms can be obtained from your membership secretaries Sue and Jon Goodland, 63 Downs Park East, Westbury Park, Bristol, BS6 7QG, telephone number 0117 962 8932 or from the web site
