I agree, but we do not need a geographical area - as we all belong to
RSCDS - and we are HQ members. Therefore we have a "place" and just have to
be recognised as just as important as a Branch

Why could there not be a voting category of non-branch members representing
a geographic area? Wouldn't that help those who are isolated feel less so?
After all, if someone cares enough to join RSCDS that must be a message that
he or she is 'community-minded', at least on some level?

Dear Oliver and others like minded

This vote was taken by Branches, who doesn't think of individual members
mostly through ignorance (If you have never met one - how can you recognise
one?).

It was not all who ignored the individual members and there was a request
for GP to look into ways by which the HQ members can be represented (Let us
hope this happens) - If HQ members had been represented I think the vote
would have looked slightly different :>)

Giving up membership doesn't solve anything - I did think of it very briefly
I must admit, but I am a stubborn so and so, and feel that RSCDS is still
worthwhile - it just needs educated :>) :>)

If I got it right from the digests from 13th and 15th March the
option "one member one vote" did not make it, instead "keeping the
Status Quo" (Option 1) made it to be proposed to the AGM.

In my opinion the Executive Council gave a clear signal: "We'll stick
to our inherited rights, single member: ... get lost". I will
strongly reconsider renewing RSCDS membership as soon as my long-term
membership expires in two years time.
