Minutes

Trust website and membership renewal

 

Bruce put forward a paper penned by him and Dave. Dave has found a new relatively cheap membership database system that will do everything we need it to including automatically sending emails to new members. This is tried and tested software and has been used by some organisations with 100,000 members.

 

The new 2018 Data Protection regulations were discussed. It was agreed we would place a notice on the website and to contact Supporters Direct for further advice.
