REPORT FROM THE MEMBERSHIP SECRETARIES YEAR ENDED 31 AUGUST 2005Sue and Jon Goodland
The Society is still able to maintain its healthy membership at just under 1,000 members, representing 674 households and organisations. We are fortunate to have a hardcore of dedicated members, many of whom have been with the Society since its formation in the late sixties. Even moving out of the area has not dampened some people's enthusiasm; around 15% live outside the BS8 area.
Over the last year CHIS has been delighted to welcome another 32 members. However, despite the sterling work by your committee and some Society members, we still need to make a positive effort in order to ensure the Society's continued success.
We are in the process of sending out 49 letters to those members who have inadvertently forgotten to renew their annual membership.
5 May 2005Around 80% of our members ensure their subscriptions are paid on time by setting up a bankers order. Why not join them!
Without our members' continued support, both in time and money, CHIS would not survive.
Bankerís order forms can be obtained from your membership secretaries
