The theory is that one copy of the magazine is sent directly from the RSCDS
to each member, not via a Branch as was previously the case, to the address
held in the members' database at Coates Crescent (using a distributor - the
staff at Coates Crescent are not stuffing the magazines into envelopes).

This assumes that you are either a HQ member whose contact details were already
known at HQ, or that your Branch has provided these details to HQ. In this
context, "your Branch" means the Branch (International or otherwise) through
which you hold RSCDS membership (sometimes called the "primary" Branch).
As you can only be a member of the RSCDS once, you should also only receive
one copy of the magazine.

It's obvious that the quality of the address material in the database determines
the quality of the distribution, and that it will take a while to clean
up the inevitable errors and omissions in the data. Please be patient but
let us know if you don't receive the magazine and think you should have it,
or if you receive multiple copies when you only expected one. Note that at
the last count not all Branches had provided member data to Coates Crescent,
so the problem may not lie with HQ

I have also heard of affiliated groups who have received copies of the magaziine
addressed to them, so the answer to the question "Will club secretaries also
receive copies as they used to with the bulletin?" would appear to be "yes".

As for this hardly being the way to keep costs down, we don't know yet, so
please reserve judgement until we have some real figures.

I for one think it's great news that the RSCDS is providing well-presented,
interesting and relevant information to its members :-)
