A New Year message to all members
I am writing this message to you all on the first day of 2021 and with it my wish to you all for a very happy and safe New Year. I am sure we are all very relieved to see the end of 2020 and
although we have had some ups and downs to weather I urge you all in the next few months to remain positive and then,
hopefully, we will be able to resume our meetings as we return to the new normal life.
Looking back though, the difficulties presented to us in 2020, gave us the opportunity to use current technologies to still
communicate with each other. The Annual General Meeting and Advent Prayer Services proved how well we all have adapted. Facebook for the Daily hymns; Zooming for Section, Branch, Executive and Trustee meetings; managing fund raising events online, as well as a virtual cup of tea (or glass of wine) and a chat are all examples of how we have embraced restrictions posed upon us. I am very proud of the way so many of you have adapted to these changes.
I have not, of course, been able to come and visit you at Branch meetings or Special Events but my offer still stands for Branches to invite not only me but other National Officers to your Zoom Branch meetings. To date, only three Branches have taken up this invitation which is a pity as these meetings can be almost as effective as face to face so please do give this further thought during the next few months. If one of your resolutions is to fully embrace zooming then please remember the funding for a Pro subscription is still available.
Please keep in touch and keep safe.
God bless you all,
Jeanette, National President
