    Re: What happened?

    So does this basically mean that the only major change from the average 
    branch member's point of view is that there will an increase in the 
    dues sent to Scotland?  I.e., there will continue to be one level of 
    membership, and that all those who are members through a branch (as 
    opposed to members through headquarters) will continue to be serviced 
    via the branch?
    
    I'll certainly be interested to hear more details when someone has time 
    to provide them, but from everything I heard up until now, it seems to 
    me that increasing dues by GBP 2 isn't really going to solve the 
    financial problems faced by the Society.  Are we going to end up having 
    another round of proposals next year?
