Meeting rescheduled 26th September 2020 (according to RailFuture website, Branch page) awaiting confirmation and not sure if it's going to be the AGM if it happens.

Notification in the latter half of last month this was going ahead - "Hope to see you at Kemble on 26th September", but I understand from the vice chair of the branch that the committee had a zoom meeting the other day and he (the vice chair) has questioned the legality and practicality for late next month.     Still in my diary ... the committee meeting (I am told) did not get right though the agenda and will resume and come to a conclusion (?) in the next few days.

Railfuture branches are largely independent of the national board and groups;  Severnside's Committee comprises five individually elected officers and a representative of each associate member organisation, but no opportunity for ordinary members to be on the committee unless they want to take on the extra commitment of an officer's role. It leaves them somewhat out of communication with the rank and file individual members in the area, who have not had an opportunity to meet either in person or online since last November.

From my email, in response to a question I asked during today's Zoom meeting with GWR.   Notes / comments from that to follow at http://www.passenger.chat/23977 - probably tomorrow morning!

Not seen any member communication yet, but can't say I'm surprised.  Thought it was a long shot a week ago.

Correct - I would (purely personally, and I might be in the minority) love to have these meetings replaced by something online to keep us in touch.

Make your point to the Branch?....I have offered by paid-for Zoom account to the organisation already for hosting this type of meeting - but only one nranch in the East has taken me up on it so far. Another thinking about it.

I have (made the point), a while back.  As only one branch has taken this up, Chris, perhaps the majority of the branches (there are about a dozen [note for other readers]), perhaps you and I are in the minority in thinking it's a good idea worth implementing, or feel it can be done without a branch member vote for which a meeting would be needed  Grin
